I found this recipe on CakeCentral.com— It is delicious and a great choice for carving cakes….especially cakes that are tapered at the bottom (Topsy turvy cakes, Pillow Cake, etc.).
The pudding in the recipe along with the sour cream gives this cake a nice, tight crumb but it is also very moist.
**If using (pudding in the mix) cake mixes, I do not add the box of instant pudding .
**I often double this recipe.
- 1 box white or yellow cake mix, of your choice - we use Duncan Hines
