Creme de Menthe Cake I

Rated as 4.72 out of 5 Stars

"This quick recipe uses regular cake mix, any brand, and any type of whipped topping. It is a great dessert for after dinner, or anytime and especially a treat for St. Patrick's Day (easy way to get something "green"). You can use creme de menthe flavoring if you don't have the actual liqueur."

Our family has passed down a similar version. However, we add 3 Tablespoons of the green creme de menthe and do not leave out any water (it stays moist this way). You may also use 1.5 box of c...
