Italian Cream Cake From Cake Mix

This Italian Cream cake is made using a cake mix. The best part? It’s so decadent they’ll never know you didn’t make it from scratch!

What type of cake mix should I use for this Italian Cream Cake ?

I personally used the store brand white cake mix. You can use any brand of white cake mix that you prefer, one is no better than the other in my opinion!


– White cake mix – Buttermilk (or heavy cream) – Egg – Vegetable oil – Coconut oil
