I made both of these rum glazed bundt cakes for guest, one is with cake mix and the other is home made from my cream cheese pound cake recipe made from scratch. Most of the guest preferred the homemade version since they had a choice. The cake mix is great in a pinch. But I prefer to make mine from scratch.
