Amalgamation Cake (Using a Cake Mix)

READY IN: 51mins
Recipe by mandabears

I ate this cake while visiting a friend who used to live in Florence Al. She got the recipe from a co-worker of hers, She hates to share recipes, but I was persistant. (Hey is that like obnoxious?) Fantastic cake, does not even randomly taste like it started with a cake mix. Don't substitute any ingredients, I tried and failed. You can use any white frosting you like.

This cake was good, although some members of family didn't care for it, I did. I also thought it made a great presentation. I did have some problems making it, as I expected the butter, eggs, flour, and sugar to get thicker, it seemed to stay same consistency from beginning to end. Which turned out to be ok, but I didn't know it at the time, and it worried me. Thanx for posting.
