I used Pamela's vanilla cake mix- it was really really good. I was surprised at how much I liked it considering it was gluten free. My family really liked it as well- I didn't even have any left over to take to work.
For the frosting there was a little more guess work involved.

I am not a cake decorator (as you can probably tell). I feel like I could do a lot better if I had thinner tips to go on my decorating tube. But I think he turned out kinda cute.
My husband kept referring to this though......
