You won't believe how good a cake mix and store bought frosting can really taste. This cake is very moist and is full of flavour.

This was a good cake and so wonderfully easy to do. The cake mixes here in Australia are a different weight so I do have to jiggle and judge the amounts of the other ingredients. I did not frost with a canned frosting as they are very expensive to purchase here but served it with big strawberries and Almond Dip - so yummy !
Made for Gimme 5 Tag. Super easy and moist. I used 2 cans of icing. I loved the addition of orange zest.
Good cake; very moist. The frosting turned out to be waaay too sweet for me & DH, but DS really liked it, so I kept the layers seperate and frosted just the one (I tried a little piece of the frosted one, and it was better on the cake but I still couldn't eat a real piece of it). I'd make the cake this way again but with a homemade frosting so I can control the sugar. Thanks.
