"I made these with a gluten free spice cake mix (Full Circle was the brand; it comes in a bag). They were for a tailgate party. Everyone LOVED them, including my husband who generally doesn't like sweets. Also, nobody guessed they were gluten-free. They were easy and I will definitely make them again!"

"question, Your recipe calls for a standard box of spice cake mix you say. Well as the box cake mix has recently changed to a smaller weight of mix that will throw off all of your added ingredients and they will not turn out as they should... My question is: is this with the older boxes of mix that weighed 18.5 ounces or the new smaller ones. it is next to impossible to find the old 18.5"
