I can't actually remember the last time I bought cake mix, I nearly always make everything I bake from scratch. I had forgotten how easy Betty Crocker cake mixes are! I mean, you literally add 3 ingredients. That's it! There weren't even any adjustments necessary for high altitude, which is nice. I think we're at 5700 feet, so this is something that comes up from time to time.
Anyway, I was able to get a 9" round cake and a dozen cupcakes from one box of mix. I should mention that this red spoon is absolutely perfect for spooning cake batter into cupcake papers. My skills are a little sad, but the spoon is the perfect shape!
It baked up very nice and fluffy. I hadn't tried the Devil's food flavor before but it is really yummy. C and I actually each had a cupcake as soon as they were cool enough to eat (along with a glass of milk = perfection).
I have to say that I really enjoyed the excuse to make a cake from a mix. It was easier than making it from scratch, and still pretty darn tasty. Also, while I didn't do this , you can check out http://www.bakesweetmemories.com/ and view a ton of really cute spring treat ideas from Betty Crocker. They also have coupons that you can load directly onto your Safeway card, so that's neat. Nothing beats a sweet slice of cake after a hard day of spring cleaning!
Now, on to the part you've all been waiting for! You, too, can be the owner of this fantastic baking set!
Is it wrong to love a bowl? Because I really love that shiny silver bowl.
