Baking is one of my passions and stress relievers, and with less than two weeks until my wedding I have been keeping calm with lots of baking, thanks to a care package from Betty Crocker. I have such fond memories of baking with Betty’s quick and easy cake mixes, they really are super easy to create scrummy cakes that everyone will think you have slaved hours perfecting.
My favourite mix has to be the Devil’s Food Cake Mix, it really is chocolately goodness that only requires eggs, oil, water and icing, and surprisingly only takes 35 minutes to bake, add on the icing perfecting and you can have a professional tasting cake in less than an hour, which has been perfect for me to whip up between organising wedding items on my to-do list.
You can just do as the packet says and create a delicious chocolate cake topped with rich fudge icing or you can go wild like me an add in broken up Oreo cookies to the cake mix and on top for decoration. If you aren’t partial to Oreos why not add chunky bits of chocolate, chocolate chips, white chocolate chunks, or how about just going crazy with the decoration using Maltesers, Buttons or Smarties – basically any excuse to add a little bit more chocolate.
If like me you are watching your waistline, I need to get into two wedding dresses in less than two weeks, treat your workpals, neighbours and family members, as trust me everyone will be happy to eat these delicious cakes – my fiancé has become one very popular person at work.
Do you have any tricks to jazz up Betty Crocker’s easy-to-bake cake mixes?
