Depends, does the mix have milk or eggs in it. If so then no you cant but if not then yes. I just mean like the wet part. Unless you pout it in the fridge and cover it t…hen you can even with eggs and milk!
It basically means to use a spatula or spoon and slowly mix the new ingredient into the mixture. It's very hard to explain this in words. Usually you move the spoon from the b…ottom of the bowl out to the side and into the middle. It is used to prevent loss of air/fluffiness in the current mixture. This is often seen in angel food cake where you start with a meringue mixture and must gently add the additional ingredients.

A dry cake can be the basis for an excellent dessert. Any numberof liquids can be poured slowly over the cake so that it is soakedup until the cake is quite saturated. Rum, br…andy, or any sweetflavored liquor such as Amaretto may be used. For a non-alcoholicdish, a thin custard such as creme Anglaise may be used, orsweetened heavy cream or the liquid drained from stewed fruit. Inthe U.S., liquid flavored gelatin (Jello) is frequently used tocreate a "Jello Cake." . > In all of the above examples, the liquid will soak in morequickly if the surface of the cake is pierced all over with along-tined fork or a skewer before pouring on the liquid. Whencustard or gelatin is used, the cake should be refrigerated.
