Pound cake mix in a box

Pound cake mix in a box

My suggestion is pound cake mix in the box, because there are a lot of young ladies like myself who love pound cake, but do not know how to make it from scratch, like our mothers. I think this would be wonderful to add to the other varieties of cake mixes that you do already have out!

4-ingredient Ice Cream Cake

4-ingredient Ice Cream Cake

For a refreshing ice cream cake, simply add one cup of your favorite soda to a box of Classic White cake mix. (Nothing else!) Mix until most of the lumps are gone. (Root Beer or Orange are the tastiest.) Pour into 2 round cakes and bake as directed on the box. Cool completely and freeze for an hour. Fill one round cake pan with vanilla ice cream and freeze for an hour. Put the ice cream "cake" between the two cakes and freeze for an hour. Top with fat free cool whip. ENJOY!
