I also had box cake mixes that I originally got for Christmas for baking with my Mother-in-law's next door neighbor kids. We were unable to use the mixes and get together so I thought I would use the box cake. Now I am not going to even bother with a recipe but I used 2 cake mixes and 6 eggs for this bundt cake. For the future I would recommend only using one and a half cake boxes. I always recommend any cake recipe in the book (although I have only made three cakes from it) William Sonoma: Cake. Also inside they have a very yummy ganache recipe that is amazing!

The cake does not really keep its design with thick frosting so maybe slice the cake down the middle and put a filling in that way. Then maybe just drizzle the cake with one of the above toppings. The cake you can pull apart but I would suggest cutting it still with a knife.
My husband really appreciated me baking the cake as he ended up having to go into work on his day off for the night shift last night. We split a piece at lunch and it was not bad for a box cake. I figured this will cut down on the need for him to get the post midnight shift doughnut and I sent him enough for his coworkers.
