Admit it – you love cake mix. It’s your saving grace for those “homemade, from scratch” cakes and cupcakes you promised to make for that party….the one you forgot about (don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us).

With all the new flavors and options available, I found myself wondering what other great creations could be made with some good old cake mix.

It’s safe to say that if cake mix wasn’t your favorite baking ingredient before, it sure will be now.
