There was nothing good about this recipe; the cake was very dense, and the frosting was very runny. Don't waste good ingredients on a bad cake.

the frosting never thickened, it was just very runny and extremely sweet.

I loved this cake, I made it for Valentines day and everyone loved it!!

I made the mix to use in muffins. The mix was a bit thick but turned out great!
