I'm not sure what cake mix the prev. person used, but you have to use a quality cake mis with any recipe. i would not dare use a cake mix that stats "just add water"
Regardless, I love this recipe! I make it for my family and co-workers all the time, and even my husbands friends request that I make them one! I will continue to use this recipe for making this cake. Thanks Kraft for making a difficult cake easy to make and very good!
