I normally bake 'from scratch' cakes. But when I see cake mixes on sale... well you never know when you might need a quick dessert, right? Cake mixes are quite easy to doll up so they turn out tasting and looking special. This one reminds me of those yummy apple cider cinnamon donuts that are so delicious during the autumn season in northern regions of our country.
