Prepared this for Crafty Lady 13, to share her loss of beloved pet, Maxx. I had a jar of lemon curd type gel which I had purchased at Lenox a good while ago, and used a Duncan Hines Golden Butter cake mix. Certainly a snap to put together, but found some un-incorporated dry mix on top after baking. Next time -- and I WILL do this again, will be sure that all of cake mix is evenly distributed over filling, and butter more evenly distributed. All that said -- it was very tasty, and DH had an extra helping before he went to bed ! So sorry about your loss -- pets are never far from our hearts ! See all activity
