I tried these with non-Duncan Hines cake mix on Thanksgiving and thought they were ok, but seemed to have a bit of a powdery texture. I didn't want to rate them because I subbed the cake mix. I made them again last night with what I *thought* was the right cake mix...the only yellow cake by Duncan Hines at my store was called "Butter Recipe Golden", so I got that. The result of this was not much better so I figured this recipe just wasn't meant for me. Then I went on Duncan Hines site and saw they do have "Classic Yellow"; my store just doesn't carry it. I wanted to post my experiences with this since obviously the right cake mix does make a difference. I WILL try again when I find the right cake mix!
