I used the Duncan Hines version of the Applesauce Walnut Cake (found on the website: duncanhines.com) but changed it up a bit, using a packet of Dream Whip in the cake and the mousse. The cake was moist, airy for a Bundt cake. Not to mention the heavenly fragrance coming from the oven. Hope you try it and share your thoughts! Enjoy!
