I love and enjoy making cakes from scratch so much, that I didn't realize just how many boxes of cake mix I had acquired over time.

So in trying to eliminate from the pantry this was the 3rd cake I made in 2 days. The other 2 that I gave away looked so good, that I wanted to make one equally as good.

Since St Patrick's Day is coming up, this is the one I came up with using white cake mix. My husband said it was very good, as well as the house keeper. It is moist, minty and has a lot of flavor.
When I finished with it, it did look quite impressive. It is simple & easy so give it a try.
