"These are really good, but I do not use the cake mix. Instead, I add the 3 Tablespoons of Chai Tea Latte mix to the recipe for Yellow Cake in the Good Housekeeping cookbook (fox60 did that answer your question?). I imagine you could use any yellow cake recipe that you like. I skipped the white chocolate chips in the frosting. It made them way too sweet. And once again, I did not use a premade frosting. I just made a standard buttercream frosting, and piped the frosting on with a large star tip, then dusted the tops with cinnamon. When I take these to parties everyone loves them, and I'm often asked which bakery they came from! "

"Did not use the cake mix or pre-made icing - made a yellow cake batter and icing from scratch. Followed the recipe otherwise, and they turned out great. People were asking for the recipe, and some people said they looked and tasted so good they thought they were store bought! Will definitely make again. "

"Too dry and lacking in flavor. The milk, egg, and Bisquick mixture didn't completely cover the ingredients, so that was a big part of the problem. Won't make again. "

"Made this for dinner tonight and it turned out very good. I used red potatoes and cut the pieces smaller than suggested because I didn't want them too hard. I think it is essential to use red potatoes. You will have a much more difficult time cooking regular potatoes to the soft stage in the allotted time. I also put a generous amount of olive oil over the veggies and made sure to stir them often, adding more paprika for color and flavor. I did not use the cheese since I didn't have any on hand, but the flavor was still good. The bottom of the chicken was a bit soggy, and I'll try raising the chicken up on top of a few potato slices next time. "

"I used to make gravy this way and it usually turned out pretty good. Sometimes lumps form if you don't stir constantly. To avoid any lumps, put half the liquid into a container with a tight-fitting lid, add the browning liquid and the flour. Shake well. Meanwhile, put the remaining liquid into the pan with the drippings and brown bits. Deglaze the pan (scraping all the brown bits free of the pan) and then pour in the shaken flour and liquid. Keep stirring, and turn up the heat until the gravy simmers. Voila! No more lumps - just a lovely smooth consistency. "
