"What you put in, you get out" The artificial tasting ingredients such as cake mix and instant pudding don't disappear with the addition of the other ingredients as I had hoped. SO if you are looking for a really impressive dessert for a dinner party- this isn't it. It tastes a little better than Entenmann's or other commerical pastry (which are good in their own way- but just have a certain mass produced flavor). BUT on the positive side- and this is pretty important- it is INCREDIBLY EASY and can be whipped up in minutes by a novice baker and also comes out extremely moist. An excellent texture-not crumby or dry at all-- great for a kid's birthday cake! 2 comments- at my supermarket, I couldn't find any cake mix that was specifically for a double layer cake- so I used 2 complete packets and have no idea if I used the right amount. An actual measurement would be less confusing. Also-- the glaze was far too much. I used half because I didn't have room to pour the rest and it was dripping off the platter as it is. It's also a good idea to let the sauce thicken before pouring it over- about 1/2 hour in the fridge. Otherwise it is really messy and gets everywhere.
