if i wanted a nice strong cake


i could use a pound cake for sure


but the cake mix doctor has a brilliant cake recipe in her book for this i think


it's the one with the ice cream


now since some cake mixes are different sizes now you have to adjust for that


or buy two and use 18 total ounces--whatever


but if memory serves


it's three eggs, one cake mix, and one melted pint of ice cream


the fun is that you can make any flavor combinations available in the entire cake mix and ice cream inventory


this cake is sort of between a pound cake and a box mix


 a carving thought for you

One of my first cakes was a pillow cake, really what got me started last year.  I used pound cake (box) as I had not started baking from scratch then.  The pound cake worked out really well and I would probably use it again.
