Look like a good package to me.
I am sure it will be tasty.
My sister emailed me the other day that she had made a red velvet cake. I asked her for the recipe and she said it was from a package and yummy,
Short-cut are good sometimes.

Auntie Bliss said...

I fell hard for the packaging at Trader Joe's and loaded up on cake mixes, cocoa, etc. Makes a pretty shelf in the kitchen! Tasted good too.

Oh, goodness...Trader Joe's makes me so happy! Love those pretty boxes, too...you'll have to tell us how you like the frosting...I always do homemade, so I've never tried it.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend with your family, my friend...

GOOD MORNING KORALEE!!

YOU ARE HOME. YOU HAVE ONE MORE WEEK to play, cook, bake, sleep, create....whatever your gorgeous self desires...and I will be along side you! I AM WAY TOO EXCITED ABOUT JUST hanging out. Yesterday, Ruben and I didn't even GO OUT...something that we are always doing, but there are time when I just want to stay PUT. We did, and it was marvelous. We read together, I just sat in the new room and admired the SUN shining into the pure white walls and reflecting the colors of the prisms in the chandelier on the walls. Those little things just tickle me!!!! Well dearest, that frosting should come out wonderfully. SAVE US THE SPOON to lick off the extra!!!! BISOUS MON AMIE! Anita

Lisa said...

Snap, we made one the easy way tonight too. I think yours are going to be super cute

andrea creates said...

Barbara said...

Nothing wrong with short cuts, Koralee! I notice Giada uses mixes all the time!

curlysusieQ said...

Let us know what you think about the frosting. I'm going to make chocolate chip cookies today while I doing the laundry and watching the snow melt away. Yes, it snow last night on all the spring flowers!! Have a wonderful day. xx susan

Monica said...

The mixes sound good ... let us know how they turn out. And I love your polka dot cupcake liners .... very cute.

Sarah Maccarelli said...

oooooooh, are they from Trader Joes? Let me know how they are.

ruffledrose.com said...

What a good trick! I've heard that adding instant pudding to those cake mixes also make a world of difference.

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend, Koralee!
xo, Vanessa Elizabeth

Heidi said...

Vintage Home said...

Hahah..I have had these in my hand a dozen times!..I will anxiously wait to hear about them!
Friends came over last night brought chocolate cake ...& insisted we keep the leftover!
Have a great day in the sun Koralee!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I do easy on a few things. I almost always buy the bags of sugar cookie mix. I think it tastes better than my homemade and so much easier. I don't know if I've ever done frosting from a box other than the fluffy white variety. You never know until you try!

malia said...

how did it go? i have a box of chocolate cake mix from trader joes that i need to try ( -:
