Oh! That sounds amazing!  Grin

My father's 50th birthday is tomorrow, so I am trying to find some good things to do with the cake mixes I have. This would be a great way to surprise him with something different

They are really really good, we've tried several different types of cake mix cookies, and my daughter has even sold some at school.

One of my most favorite things is Jello Cake.  After you bake your cake (white or yellow looks the best), let it cook, poke holes all over the top with a fork.  Prepare your jello like normal, then pour it on the cake.  Let it chill for several hours.  Then frost with Cool Whip. 

If you are making a cake to decorate, this is a great recipe.  Use Betty Crocker white cake mix.  Mix in 1/4 cup flour, 1 1/3 cups water, 1/4 cup canola oil, 1 tsp almond extract, and 3 egg whites.  It comes out real firm and just delicious.

My mom used to make a delicious cake.  She would take a box of chocolate cake mix and add a package of chocolate instant pudding and a can of cherries.  It was so moist.

Ooh I love white cake mix with the lemon jello or strawberry jello.  We do it unfrosted & it's good that way too.  Smiley

If I'm just trying to jazz up a cake, I like adding a little orange extract to the cake mix. It's so tasty! Or I'll add peppermint extract and I'll top the frosting with some crushed up peppermints. The ones that come in the individual little plastic? Yeah, those. So tasty!

I like to add a full container of icing to the batter.  Then bake as usual.  The icing makes the cake very sweet, so I like using the low sugar cake mix.  Any flavor combo can be used.

Sounds very rich! Dad would absolutely love a chocolate cake with chocolate icing added with chocolate icing on the outside. Can you say chocoholic? Ha - what is the texture of the cake when it is made this way?

I like chocolate fudge cake mix with chocolate fudge icing in the batter.  I then use homemade cream cheese icing and cherry pie filling on top.
