    I made this cake for a family Christmas was enjoyed by all!! I substituted half of the cranberries for raspberries and drizzled the finished cake with some icing made from icing sugar, milk, and a few drops of almond extract. I found 3/4 cup of sugar to be too much, so next time I'll probably go with a 1/2 cup and add a bit more fruit. Delicious!!!

    I found this dessert way too sweet. If I were to make it again, I'd probably omit the pudding from the cake mix... and I didn't really care for the texture of the jelly powder after it was baked.
