    I did a double take on this one! At first I thought, yellow cake mix, so what? BUT you are putting the frosting IN the cake. What a terrific flavorful idea! I would have never thought of it. I just have to try this! Thanks for posting this recipe!

    I've got to admit, sounded kind of weird but I'm all for trying new things. I'm saving this one to my recipe box. I'll be sure to post you when I find out I've been missing some really good recipes. Thanks for sharing.

    I thought the same thing when I first got the recipe, but if you like a moist cake without all the heavy icing, this is a good one! Warm a slice for breakfast with your coffee. Yum!

    I have a recipe that is like this only use a package of pecan cake mix and add a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to the same mix as your recipe. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of chopped pecans in the greased bundt cake pan and then pour the cake batter in. Bake same way as your recipe calls. Delicious! Amazing what the can of frosting adds to the flavor of this cake!
