If you want a little piece of heaven on earth…..this is it! This cake is very moist and super delicious. It’s layered with a yellow cake mix and honey buns topped off with a sweet iced icing. It will melt in your mouth! When baking, the honey buns melt into the cake, filling the cake with it’s icing and cinnamon flavor for extra added flavor. It even makes your home smell like a fresh baked cinnamon roll.
