I made 2 varations of this cake. I used a lemon cake mix and lemon pudding, and a yellow cake mix and pistachio pudding. Both turned out great. I used a lemon glaze and a white glaze. I will be making this recipe often.

Wonderful cake LAURIE! I used a chocolate cake mix because we wanted as much chocolate flavor as possible. Also, I used a small box of instant wasn't 1 5/8 oz., I think it was more like 3.8 oz. - it did the trick. The glaze over this cake is wonderful, the kids loved it. Thanks LAURIE for this easy cake recipe!
