A box cake mix is supposed to make the process of baking easier, but you can still make a mistake even with the simplest of mixes. A thin batter can lead to a cake that wrinkles or shrinks while in the oven. Removing some of the liquid or adding a few extras to the batter can thicken it up and save your dessert.

Scoop out some of the water with a spoon before stirring. This will help if you realize the mistake before mixing. The water will be the top layer. Dip a spoon into the liquid and take as much out as necessary.
