This recipe is so darn simple, and you can sub in whatever type of fruit you have on hand. Fresh Apple Cake Ingredients:Fresh Fruit, sliced if large (I used two Rome apples)Package yellow cake mixStick of butter Layer your apple slices (or other fruit) at the bottom of a pan that has been coated with non-stick spray. Sprinkle on boxed cake mix. I didn't even use the entire box -- save a little if you please, and then you can use it to make single-serving versions of this same recipe when you get a sweet tooth! Melt an entire stick of butter.Don't judge me.

Pour butter over the fruit and dry cake mix. Edit: Usually, I've found that the butter and the moisture from the fruit is enough to soak into the dry mix and create a nice cooked crust. Bake at 350* for approximately 35-45 minutes -- it's done when it is nice and bubbly. Three ingredients, and a stellar recipe.

Because I thought you’ve all been around forever I figured you knew I made the star garland but bought the stockings from Pottery Barn Kids {post-Christmas sale in 2006}. The star garland was way easy.
