Great cake! Made this for Thanksgiving. It looks pretty and tastes even better. The moist cake combined with the decadent glaze is a winning combination. The toasted pecans on top really put this recipe over the top. Will definitely make again.

I want to make this cake and have all the ingredients but I noticed that my box of Duncan Hines spice cake is 16.5oz and not 18.25oz. Did anyone notice this and did it affect the way the cake came out?

My husband and Mother said this was the best cake I've made in a long time. My brother and sister-in-law approved of it too.

My cake turned out completely flat. I had to make a few changes from the original recipe, using a pumpkin spice cake mix as the store didn't have regular spice cake mix, and I had 9" cake pans instead of the 8" pans it called for. Other cakes have turned out just fine with minor substitutions, but not this one. It still tasted great.

It's dangerous to taste the glaze before putting it on the cake. Consider yourselves warned! Cooking Light did a phenomenal job with a boxed cake. It was delicious, moist and simply amazing. The glaze definitely steals the show though. Wow, it was good. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines: http://bit.ly/18HajP1

Excellent. Always looking for shortcuts with boxed products. This is top notch. I added chopped pecans also.

Awesome cake! Easy recipe. The brown butter glaze is phenomenal!! I took this to a potluck dinner yesterday and every bite was eaten. This cake will be a great addition to my Thanksgiving dessert table this year.
