Go to the recipes tab here, look at the categories to the left and hit "Italian". There are several to choose from.

No there isn't a box mix for it. I believe it would be like a white cake with coconut and pecans added. I've made a doctored mix for it once, but didn't remember exactly what I did.

Pillsbury makes a Butter Pecan box mix. i think with some flaked coconut and chopped pecans added and homemade frosting it would make an excellent Italian Cream cake. I've been wanting to try the WASC variation on it and see what i get.

I got a great recipe off of here. It's just using your enhanced butter cake recipe and add a can of coconut pecan frosting. It sounds too good to be true but it is divine with cream cheese icing!!!!!

My husband (yes he cooks) makes a cake that is a great "box mix" italian cream.
White cake mix
coconut flavor
almond flavor
coconut flakes

For the icing he uses a buttercream recipe withvanilla, coconut and almond flavor (just a little), a tad of cream cheese, pecans and coconut flakes. Not very pretty icing, but yummmmmmm good. People went nuts over his cake! LOL
