The cake was delicious and really easy to make. The directions were really easy to read and follow. I like that each step had everything separated out (so step 3 and step 5 both used flour but had their own bags for each step), and I guess all the little bags and containers can be recycled. My vanilla also spilled out of the containers, but it wasn't a lot. Still plenty to work with. My cinnamon layer sunk to the bottom but that is my own fault. Overall a good box!
