Baking Secrets

If you're making a box cake mix (Duncan Hines, Moist Deluxe, Betty Crocker, etc.) the directions say that you only need to add oil, water and eggs. As I was watching my Mother-in-Law prepare cupcakes for Lily's Birthday Lunch tomorrow, she gave me this tip:

Instead of water, add milk (with fat, 2% or whole).
Mmm, creamy.

And instead of 1/2 cup of oil, add 1/2 cup of butter.
Mmm, smooth and buttery.
