Gluten Free Birthday Cake

I made a gluten free birthday cake for my dad's birthday. Everyone said they really liked it and I think it turned out really well.

I used two boxes of the Betty Crocker gluten free cake mix. One yellow cake and one devil's food cake. I doctored them both just a tiny bit.

To each mix I added:
2 tbsp (approximately 1/2 a pudding cup) Vanilla pudding
3/4 tbst vanilla
2 tbsp almond flour (blue diamond brand)

I marbled the cakes a bit but could have done a better job on that part. I frosted the cake in homemade buttercream. My hands have not been cooperating with fine work so I used store bought candles as the only decoration. I couldn't find my turntable so the frosting job didn't come out as smoothly as I would have liked.
