    This cake is axregular with my kids. I make it every fall and if its no made, the kidsxask why. It is so moist, delicious and so sinfully Decadent!!!!!! I loved to like pumpkin making this cake especially where sweet potatois king down here in the South! Try making this with a French vanilla flavored cake mix as well. It tastes so good!

    Delish! I make this at least twice each fall with multiple friends asking for the recipe. Sometimes instead of making the frosting, I'll just use store bought cream cheese icing to speed things up. Also I throw in about 1 c chocolate chips instead of chopping the bakers squares.

    LOVE IT!! Have gotten rave reviews everytime I've made it & shared the recipe with several others. I use chocolate chips & last time added some cinnamon chips as well.
