To make cake mixes taste like cakes made "from scratch":
Source: I have had this tip for years, and as far as I can recall, it was given to me by a friend of my mother's.

Another tip is to add 1/2 to 1 tsp. of vanilla to your cake mix. I also have butter flavoring/extract which I typically add 1/2 to 1 tsp. of to each boxed cake mix as well. (11/15/2007)
I have always added about 1/4 cup extra flour to a cake mix to make it taste more homemade. This seems to give the cake mix more body. Then, just mix it like you would normally and bake. (04/10/2008)
