you could always make a cake from the box you buy in the store,it saves time and money and when theres a specific flavor of cake you like, check the back of the box, usually theyll have another recipe to spruce it up, or to kinda cutesy it up for the kids.

We make Ooey Gooey Chocolate cake that has been a favorite at our house now for years...
Take your favorite Chocolate Cake (We most of the time use box because it saves on time, triple chocolate is good)
Take one can sweetened condensed milk and mix with 1 jar ice cream caramel sauce.
When you take the cake out of the of oven poke holes in it with a straw.
Pour the caramel mixture over the cake so it can seep into the cake.
Place cake in fridge for an hour then top with cool whip, and then shave (or in our case grate) chocolate on top. Keep in fridge until serving.
It's sure to be a hit!
