Super easy to make. We only had to bake it for 20 mins and it was done. We also made a double batch of the icing so that we had a good amount to make it actually look layered.

I just finished mixing this up and my batter is super stiff, not like a cake mix batter at all, is that the way it's suppose to be, or is there an ingredient such as oil, water, or milk that is missing

Hello Janet thanks for trying the recipe ........I think you for got to add the vegetable oil it calls for 1 1/2 cups of oil but what I did was add one cup first then if I needed more I added it but it took all of the oil I hope this works.

Your Method directions omit adding the oil. I'm assuming it is added at the time egg whites and cake mix is added?
