    1. Thank you!! Yes, just follow the instructions on the box! I do like to use 4 eggs for box recipes, use 1 cup of oil and 1 cup of sour cream because it makes all box cakes really moist! Hope you had a great holiday!!

    1. Really Jazz, you find it in the produce section near the fruit usually! It is perfect for Strawberry Pie too! I have to post the recipe!
