"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:

Water, oil and eggs called for on cake mix package
1 container Duncan Hines Creamy Home-Style Cream Cheese Frosting

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans or a 9 x 13-inch pan.
2. Combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs in large bowl.
3. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pans.
4. Bake 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean of crumbs or according to package directions if baking in a 9 X 13-inch pan.
5. Cool cakes on wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes, then immediately remove cakes from pans and cool completely. Leave in pan if using a 9 X 13-inch pan.
6. Spread flat side of one cake layer with frosting, top with next cake layer and frost top only (or sometimes I mix frosting with a container of whipped cream which makes it lighter, less sweet, and goes further so you could frost the entire cake, but then need to refrigerate it). Garnish top with white chocolate curls and sprinkles.
