I wanted to make a cake for my husband a couple of days ago, but I wasn't feeling well. So I pulled out a box cake mix, took a chance and worked a little magic with it. The result? Wonderful yumminess!!! I hope you like it, too. [You could also substitute the French vanilla cake mix with yellow cake mix.] :)
