Doesn't dieting make you crave the oddest things? I've never been a Twinkie fan but I adore these _fake_ ones. Of course the filling isn't that slick lard stuff that has a 50 year shelf life but at only 2 Weight Watchers points per serving, I'll chew and dream.

well I use Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe yellow cake, I could not find the butter cake as stated in the ingredients, I am giving this 5 stars for the cake, I used Cool Whip for the filling but I think I would have preferred something different, I will make the cake again but with a different filling, thanks for sharing Susie!
