        Hummingbird Cake is my all-time favorite! I love this gift jar idea. However, I am disappointed that it doesn't have instructions for the cream cheese icing which is the best part.

      Re: improve a cake mix ?

      One of my favorite things to add to cake mix is: instead of water and oil add applesauce. This can make it moist and if doing a spice cake add nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon.
