Used the French vanilla cake mix and frosted with cream cheese icing, so incredibly tasty!

Great falvor. I omitted the nuts and dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled a white chocolate glaze over top. Big hit! I'll be making this again. Great recipe to give to newly wed's learning to cook.

This tasted very good and was easy to make but I think it would be better with some kind of lite icing drizzled on top....or maybe some white chocolate!!!!
