Deluxe Cake

Did you ever think I would make something from a mix? Here’s a secret: this recipe involves cake mix and instant pudding. Sometimes it is wonderful to create recipes from mixes! Preparation time is shorter!

When buying the cake mix, be sure it doesn’t already have pudding in it. The way to tell is if it just doesn’t say anything on the front about having pudding in it already. Another secret: buy the cheapest white or yellow generic cake mix you can find. Honestly!

A simple little cake can make you so happy! Add the fresh fruit and you’re extra happy! So take a listen to “Make Someone Happy” sung by Sarah Vaughan.
