I’ve had my eye on this mix for awhile. I never purchased it because I really didn’t have a reason to, other than curiosity. But, this weekend I found it on sale and curiosity won.
The instructions are easy to follow and the cake was simple to make and assemble.
Although you bake the cake in a 13 x 9 pan, because you cut the cake into thirds, you end up with a small layered cake that is approximately 4 x 9 in size.
The cake is just what I expected … a spice cake with a hint of pumpkin. The almonds and caramel drizzle make it look lovely … it is perfect for bringing to a pot luck.
The one down side is that the cream cheese frosting is so sweet, it tastes more like sugar than cream cheese. If you don’t have that much of a sweet tooth, it might be worth getting some cream cheese and beating it into one of the cream cheese pouches (the filling is separated into two pouches, making assembly almost a no-brainer!).
