"Your good friend has just taken a piece of cake out of the garbage and eaten it. You will probably need this information when you check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic." - Miranda, Sex and The City.
Instead of our traditional Tuesday night dinner this week, we picked up a couple boxes of our favorite take-out and baked a cake to celebrate a friend's birthday. This mocha bundt cake is an absolutely delicious (& easy) way to dress up a traditional Betty Crocker boxed cake mix. In our previous experience, everyone assumes this cake is made from scratch & there aren't any extra slices left after a birthday celebration.
