    Hey Guys!
    I went to Von's Supermarket in Anaheim, CA today and they had a sale on Cake Mixes...just in time to make this recipe and some others like Biscotti, Cookies etc... The deal is: BUY 2 GET 3 FREE AND IT AMOUNTS TO ABOUT 40 CENTS A BOX! So, if you're in CA-I don't know if the sale is Nationwide or not so ask your local Vons about it.
    I'm pretty pleased. I have enough that I can make all sorts of things. The icings are also BUY 2 GET 3 FREE as well. I don't use them much but they're nice to have on hand to put in a plastic bag, cut off the end and "pipe on" rolls, cookies, biscotti or whatever you like.

    This place is beginning to feel like a massive kitchen with a bunch of talented chefs inside. Pretty cool isn't it?

    Lorraine, interesting combo of ingredients! Don't remember ever seeing white cake mix and yeast in a recipe before! Didn't see the pecans in the ingredient list, but they are a must-have for me. Thanks!
