Pina Colada Cake

Jean Romero


This is too good, I make my white cake from scratch but I'm sure its just as good with a cake mix. I will be posting about 3 other cakes that have booze in them. If you use a mix make it according to pkg direction and use ingredients that I have marked with this sign # in front of the ingredients.
