This cake is delicious! I made it with yellow cake mix as well (its what I had on hand). The first time, I used the cinnamon and sugar... YUMMY. I made it for New Year's Eve and it was gone within minutes! The second time I made (which was afew days later because I didn't get but one small sliver the first time), I used yellow cake mix, cinnamon/sugar, and some brown sugar... again... YUMMY! I've gotten so many compliments on this cake! Thanks for posting it. (I did tell everyone where I found it!)

OMG, this is a great cake! I did use a yellow cake mix (that's what I had on hand) and mixed the cinnamon w/brown sugar...Yum! Sorry I didn't use the exact ingredients the first time around, but, it still deserves 5*! It's so easy to mix up and bake...Came out light as a feather! Thanks for sharing, Poker, it'll be my pleasure to make this again. Laudee
