This recipe was so easy to make. Instead of the layer cake, I made cupcakes. It made about 20 cupcakes, putting about 1.5-2 tablespoons batter in each cup. The icing was also delish. The cupcakes got rave reviews from coworkers.

Didn't like this at all. Very heavy. Not what I expected. I guess if I am going to use a box mix, I might as well follow the box directions. Wouldn't make this again.

This cake is very yummy. I followed the directions exactly and it was a very easy cake to make. There is not a lot of batter, but it rises a lot while baking. I am going to make it for my son's 3rd birthday and put Mater and Lightning McQueen on it.

This turned out absolutely perfect. Very moist, very delicious. I made 12 cupcakes and a loaf cake, and there was the perfect amount of icing for everything. This recipe is so easy and quick but tastes like you spent hours making it! I received so many compliments that I couldn't possibly admit I used a box of cake mix ;)
