---> Have made this for many years in a bundt pan, but use my homemade buttercream frosting with a splash of almond extract… I called it the “KERMIT THE FROG CAKE” (it’s already green enough, so you do not have to add green food coloring) and let younger nephew/nieces decorate with a variety of candies like chocolate stars, M&Ms, candy corn, etc. They LOVED doing that and STILL remember now that they are adults! Yes, as they decorated, there were many licked fingers that 'somehow' got into the frosting! Very moist & delish; still a favorite of mine. ~ NOTE: Have also done the same with a Cherry Chip cake mix (with a splash of almond extract added to the batter) with homemade buttercream frosting tinted pink frosting [with with a splash of both vanilla and almond extract]. Of course, the pink version we called the "MISS PIGGY CAKE." (Sesame Street was obviously very popular in those days)... ~ Good memories and a wonderful (easy) change from the "expected" chocolate cake!
