I am giving this cake five stars just for the cake alone since I thought this turned a boring cake mix into a really yummy cake. I felt that the amaretto frosting was a bit too intese for me so I only spread a very thin layer on top ( I didn't poke any holes in it ) and I also did not put as much amaretto in it as called for, instead I added some water. I think this cake would be fine without any frosting at all; just a little whipped cream and fruit would be delicious.

Delicious. I made it exactly as directed, and this cake turned out moist & melt-in-your-mouth perfect. It didn't have a very strong amaretto flavor; the amaretto-confec sugar icing just soaks through it to keep it sooo moist. The batter is really thick, so make sure you smooth it evenly into your bundt pan.
