"A very simple cake using a white cake mix and cappuccino coffee powder. The vegetable oil has been reduced to account for the fat in the added cappuccino mix."

This was disappointing. The cake part had very little flavor. The frosting only had a very faint flavor, and that flavor was chocolate - no coffee flavor came through. I won't make this again. (The only positive thing I can say is that there was ample frosting; I had some left over even after I generously frosted the cake.)

I only made the frosting, but it was easy and delicious. I used about 1/2 of the coffee-water mixture and it had a very distinct mocha flavor. Will definitely make again.

The cake was tasty and moist and stayed moist for a week after I made it. I would make it again. I did not make the frosting although.
