Cdngourmetgirl, there is nothing wrong with this recipe. Some people aren't accomplished cooks but still want to bake at home rather than buying something. Semi-home-made is perfect for them. I do it myself sometimes, when I'm short on time. Lighten up! We aren't all gourmet cooks.
Nothing irks me more than to see a recipe where everything is prepackaged or premade. Sorry TOH.
I made this for Easter. It was a big hit, with several requests for the recipe. I made a homemade buttercream frosting for it, and note it does need a lot of frosting, if you use canned frosting I would recommend two cans. Great recipe, it was a hit with men and women.
