This recipe so easy. I make for every get-together, potluck or party that I go to. I make for new neighbors. its so good. I've had lots of compliments. You can use just about any flavor cake mix. Spice goes really well with peach filling or canned pears ( I use 3 cans and drain the syrup off of two). I also leave out the pineapple when using peaches or pears. Carrot cake is really good too. I mostly use yellow cake mx. Be creative and come up with your own combinations.
