  1. I love this kind of recipe because it's a jumping off point for what you can do with a cake mix. I don't understand why the recipe doesn't call for a chocolate cake mix. I'll try that next time. The only other thing I did was use all Kahlua instead of any water (1cup Kahlua - Read more ...
  2. OK, I've learned my lesson, I will read reviews BEFORE I make the recipe. Unfortunately, this time I didn't have enought time to read the reviews, or at least one relly important review from Diana who warned others not to use the 5.9 oz of pudding, use the smaller pack instead.

  4. This is a wonderful tasting cake and so easy to make! I have made more than 30 of these to give away to friends/neighbors during the holiday season. Thank you for posting it!

  7. This cake is great. I did not however like the icing so I kept adding powdered sugar to make it thicker.
  8. This was a wonderful surprise. The cake is very moist and very easy to make. And it does get better after it is refridgerated.
  9. It was ok. I don't think refrigerating it first helped the flavor at all. I think it would've been better warm.
