Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

I tried to duplicate a birthday cake I tasted at a party, I came pretty dang close! This is an easy and elegant cake. Now I make it for the holiday dessert buffet. It's so beautiful.

I had no idea such a simple addition to a prepackaged mix could make such a huge difference! This was delicious! I made it for a friend's birthday back in October (see picture) and forgot to review it. As I write this, I have another one in the oven - this time I used classic yellow moist supreme with vanilla pudding and am planning to frost with chocolate icing. I'm definitely looking forward to eating it! Thanks for a great recipe!
