sturdy box cake mix

This is a great recipe for a nice sturdy cake that starts with a box mix. It is one of my favorite go to combinations for a cake that needs to be stacked and also probably carved on the sides. I have not tried it with any other brand other that Duncan Hines but feel free to experiment. Try different puddings for different flavors, for White cake try banana or white chocolate pudding, Chocolate cake use chocolate pudding and more!
