On the menu: Easy Creamy Italian Cake Mix This recipe may be a little cheating because it includes boxed cake mix, but I promise you after baking this cake that won't matter. This is my favorite cake I've ever made (and I've baked some amazing ones like the Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Ganache). I've baked this easy Italian cream cake many times including several to give as gifts. Try this cake soon and let me know what you think.
