Honestly, when I saw the question and the fact that it was closed, I actually thought "eh, I probably would have left it alone." Even though it was worded rather poorly ("best recipe"), there are really only a couple of answers.
On the other hand, I think if the OP is willing to reword his question (no sign of that yet), then we would actually be helping him. He says that he tried something and it didn't turn out right; what I think he really wants to know (or should want to know!) is why it didn't turn out right, not just a ratio that may or may not be what he's actually used to with the store-bought mixes.
The fact that it would be so easy to reword this question (if he would just tell us what he tried) makes me want to keep it closed for the time being. I think that the answers would be far more interesting and generally useful after a revision or two.
If he really doesn't care about any of that and just wants the hallmark ratio then fine, we can also edit the question into a one-liner and strip out all of the background information (which is no longer pertinent) to make it nice and search-friendly. Either way, I think it calls for some editing and should remain closed until we get some sort of feedback from the author.
