Frosted Blackberry Cake Recipe

Ann Kelly of Gallatin, Tennessee takes advantage of boxed mixes to bake this moist berry-flavored cake. "My husband and I started watching our fat and sugar intake, so I made several changes to the original recipe to come up with this lighter version," she says. "It's best prepared the day before serving, and it freezes well, too."
