White cake with Butter-Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

"This is a recipe that I turn to again and again to make Birthday and Holiday cakes for my family.  It makes a very moist and delicious cake with a velvety sweet Icing!"

1 Duncan Hines Butter Golden cake mix (eggs, oil and water called for on box)
1 tsp. almond flavoring
Just follow the High altitude directions on the box.  Add almond flavoring and mix well.  Pour into prepared pans of your choice and bake following box instructions.  Allow cake to cool completely and frost and decorate.
Note:  I always frost the cake 1 to 2 days before needing it.  It makes the cake very moist.
1-8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1 stick or 1/2 cup of butter, softened
2 Tbsp. of shortening
2 pound bag of powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond flavoring
Food Coloring, if desired

Cream together cream cheese, butter and shortening.  Add powdered sugar a little at a time until all combined.  Add vanilla and almond flavoring.  Color with food coloring, if desired.  Frost cake and decorate.  Store in refrigerator until needed.

The following are photos of the cakes that I have created over the years for my family.

"This was one of the cakes that I made for my Mom's Birthday."
"This is the cake I made for my niece's 21st Birthday.  The theme of her party was "Sex in the City".
"This was the cake I made for my Mom's Birthday this year."
"Another Birthday cake that I made my Mom."

For this cake I used 2 round cakes.  I used one cake for the face and then I cut the second cake to form the bow tie and ears.  I decorated the bunny cake with pink-tinted coconut, pastel M&M's, and red licorice.
