Tell the Sam's clerk how much you love their cake. Then ask which brand cake mix they use.

And use an icing that's 100% shortening with no butter.

if you want a recipe that will be soft out of the fridge then use oil in it don't use butter -- cakes made with butter do not relax or soften back up from fridge to room temp -- they will soften back up if you microwave them for a few seconds but of course after icing it that's not practical so the oil versus butter thing is a big part of it -- 

my scratch white and yellow cakes use butter so i use doctored mix for tier cakes -- i just make the scratch cakes for family --- doctored mix is a work horse formula that i always appreciated for schleppping cakes in & out the fridge for decorating -- i nearly always use fillings that need to be fridged too so that works like crazy for me 

i use self rising flour in mine so it's not heavy -- it's perfect

I second the oil based cake.......the chocolate cake recipe from Hershey's stays soft......I substitute the recipe with a high-end cocoa powder (callebaut) but the recipe turns out a really great choc cake that stays very moist.
