This is one of the more easier desserts I chose to make for our Family Reunion this year.

It is always easy and simple when you use cake mix, I embellished this boxed mix with Pistachio pudding and lemon lime Kool Aid, and fresh Strawberries and Kiwi.

I gave this one away to a friend, then made another one for North Carolina, I wanted to make sure it was up to par.

The fresh fruit makes an impressive presentation, then adding the Sugar Free yogurt covered Raisins, along with extra strawberries, made it look even more elegant & brought out the flavor in the Sugar Free Frosting.

1Of course you can use any boxed cake mix you choose. I used a Maryanne Baking pan, because the recessed area comes in handy for holding the fresh fruit. PREHEAT OVEN TO 325 DEGREES F. You may also want to use a Flan pan, but of course it would make 2 smaller versions.

5Bake in preheated 325 degrees oven for about 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool till cake pulls away from sides of pan, then invert onto cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Transfer to a cake platter, and frost with your favorite frosting.
