I use french vanilla cake mix all the time. Maybe add more vanilla and take out the almond extract.
Glad I could offer a good tip. Although I wish I could have all the cake stuff I can get my hands on, that turns this into a pretty expensive hobby really fast, so I like to improvise.
I use my icing tips to cut small circles...12 is a nice size but even 8 or 10 would work if you have something small to poke them out with.
