    Has anyone made this yet? I am making it for my show tonight and the batter was so thick I couldn't whisk it or pour it into the pan. I re-read the directions 15 times to make sure I didn't miss anything and I didn't. I am just wondering if they left ingredients off the recipe cards?

    I've made it and while it was thick I coulddefinately whisk and poor it. Did you use the right size cake mix? the recipe is suitable for small box of jiffy yellow cake mix. betty crocker size is twice the amount.

    Did you use the right size cake mix? It is 9 oz not the usual 18 oz...

    I used the wrong size cake mix LOL. I felt like an idiot and because I was convinced that the recipe card was printed wrong! Thanks for the info and letting me know I am not crazy!

    I doubled it on purpose when I made it for an open house last week and used both torte pans. One cake mix and double the fillings! (They really need to emphasize when they use that jiffy cake mix!!!)

    I'll have to tell my downline. She made it and said it was super-lemony and too thick to get out of the pan!
