Spring Rain Cake

After a spring rain I stepped outside to see the grass grow, the puddles spilling into the lower parts of the ground and dandelions everywhere. I was inspired. My cake is flavored with the refreshing tastes of Duncan Hines Devil's food, Mint Chocolate Frosting Creations with their frosting, sprinkles, colorful cake gels and berry blue gelatin. This puts a taste to spring.

I bake chewy fudge brownies 3 times a month. I noticed changed instructions on the box I prepared today. Please note that my oven works perfectly. Changing the baking time as instructed left me with uncooked product. I added an additional 5 minutes, same as old instructions and got a satisfactory result. Pan size 13 x 9, foil lined glass. Same as I have always used. May need to inform your test kitchen. Thank you
