I loved these! I used a strawberry cake mix instead of white and they are pretty and pink and taste awesome. I have never made homemade icing, so I just used a can of vanilla frosting. I had to make these for an office party and didn't have time to risk my icing not coming out well. Next time I will try the icing. But, i highly recoommend the strawberry cake mix, tastes great!

Not as moist as I thought they would be. I made two batches because I forgot to add the eggs to the first batch and honestly the ones without the eggs were sweeter and more moist. Not sure I would make them again, I have definitely had better.

Wasn't any different than a regular white cake to me and the icing was gritty.

The icing was a bit too sweet, and the cake was kind of odd tasting.
