This is such an easy an tasty idea. I used a red velvet mix and cream cheese icing. I saved a bit less than 1/3 of the can for icing the finished cake. It is beautifully moist and has a gorgeous crumb. However, the cake doesn't taste much different than a standard "doctored" cake mix. I opted for a 13x9x2 instead of the bundt called for in the instructions.
