This recipe came from someone I used to work with. It's a really moist and rich cake. A little goes a long way. Works well with all flavors of cake mix.

I used a devils food cake mix, this is a very interesting cake - i was very surprised when the top layer sank into the cake (im guessing its suppose to) I only used 3/4 of a stick butter and 3 cups powderd sugar for the topping, and i think that was plenty - im afraid of how sweet it would have been should i have used to whole lb. of sugar. the cake had a lovely marbled effect - i couldnt resist even letting it cool without trying a peice - very rich and moist. Took 10 extra minutes in the oven useing a bundt pan, id love to try this with some other types of cake mix - all and all a very nice recipe. :)
