Thank you. I couldn't remember, and it's packaged differently here.

I want to note that frozen berries can be used in this cake. With folding in the berries dont be too hard on them as they will bleach the blue in the batter and does not look so good when cake is sliced. I usually buy the 8 oz package of cream cheese and split it in half for the frosting. I just freeze the rest until the next time.
