This is certainly a yummy cake mix. I own a dessert business and for family I use box mixes but I don't follow the ingredient list all the way as I doctor it up to make it homemade. You can think of a box mix as your premeasured dry ingredients so to speak. When making this in cupcakes i do find that I need to fill almost completely to the top in order to get the dome shape on the cupcake. This could be due to how doctor it up. None the less, you are left with an airy delightful cake that is so good. I always get lots of compliments on this cake especially when I make this with my Oreo cupcakes!

This is my go to cake mix! This cake mix is super affordable I believe it was a $1.12 at Target. This mix had super easy instructions to follow and doesn't take a lot of ingredients. The mix has little sprinkles inside that bake out, and add a bit of pizazz to your average vanilla cake. The cake smells and tastes delicious!!!!! The cake is light and puffy. It is also not overwhelmingly sweet. Great price and quality! Super fun for everyone!

So after seeing this flavor in the store for probably a year I finally broke down and tried it. and I have to admit, it's now one of my favorites! The uncooked cake batter isn't as good as other batters as far as licking the spoon goes, however, once it's baked, its very moist and delicious. I topped it with the rainbow chips white icing and it made it perfect!

Double trouble. These little Ghirardelli chocolate squares are like heaven on Earth with their smooth creamy chocolate exteriors and delicious gooey caramel interiors. These chocolate & caramel squares are really, really good. Reminds me a bit of Godiva chocolate & caramel. I like very few kinds of chocolate other than Godiva, but I love these Ghiradelli. One note about the packaging is that the squares will melt out of the package into your pocket or bag.

Pillsbury cake mixes are terrific. IF you follow the ingredients properly, they come out beautiful and perfect! I love pillsbury cake mixes the best because they come out super moist, soft and fluffy! Get the frostings to go with the cake and it'll taste great! The instructions are super easy to follow and you just need the standard ingredients such as egg and flour. Put it in the oven and you'll have a beautiful cake before you! The instructions are super straightforward and very easy to follow!

These are constantly going on sale at my local shop n save 10 for 10 so I stock up all the time. They have a shelf life of about a year and with 5 birthday cakes to cook a year this is a quick easy batter to whip up and use. I've been using Duncan Hines to bake cakes for 5 years now and will NEVER spend money on bakery cakes again.
