Default Spice Cake Mix for Fruit Cake?

My wife has a box of Betty Crocker spice cake mix and would like to know
whether anyone has a recipe for a fruit cake using that mix. I don't see
one at their website, and I've become overloaded with Google's results
for fruit cakes but not a specific recipe using the above combination.

Considering how expensive the ingredients are for a decent fruit cake, I
can't see using a cake mix for the batter. I would tale a look at one of
these recipes. The Christmas fruitcakes look like winners:

Most traditional fruitcakes improve with age, so I wouldn't count on eating
one for about a month.

a google on 'fruitcake "spice cake" mix recipe' (use the double
quotes) gives these links.

Googling on '"fruit cake" "spice cake" mix recipe yields

http://www.baking911.com/_disc10/00000513.htm
http://www.favoritebrandrecipes.com/...3450001160.htm

There may be duplicates, and I've not tried any of them, preferring to
make my fruitcakes from scratch.

You might simply try adding your prepared fruitcake mix to the cake
batter until it 'looks right'. (prepared means chopped, soaked,
dredged, etc.)

Thanks to all of you responders - All comments were forwarded to my wife
to do with them what she will (Been married too long to argue the logic
of fruit cake baking with her)!
