if i wanted a nice strong cake

 

i could use a pound cake for sure

 

but the cake mix doctor has a brilliant cake recipe in her book for this i think

 

it's the one with the ice cream

 

now since some cake mixes are different sizes now you have to adjust for that

 

or buy two and use 18 total ounces--whatever

 

but if memory serves

 

it's three eggs, one cake mix, and one melted pint of ice cream

 

the fun is that you can make any flavor combinations available in the entire cake mix and ice cream inventory

 

this cake is sort of between a pound cake and a box mix

 

 a carving thought for you

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

One of my first cakes was a pillow cake, really what got me started last year.  I used pound cake (box) as I had not started baking from scratch then.  The pound cake worked out really well and I would probably use it again.
