This is my friend Nicole's, favourite birthday cake. It is becoming a tradition. We hope you enjoy it also. This is a very easy cake to make and vary.

Incredibly easy and very impressive. I made it for my twin daughters' 16th birthday and it was beautiful. I got ahead of myself mixing the cake mix with the ingredients asked for on my box (1 1/3 cups water, 1/2 cup butter, 3 large eggs), before I realized what I was doing, but I figured it was probably not a problem. I would definitely make this again! (Picked this one for Zaar Tag and I'm glad I did.)
