Double Sundae Blog ...

I’m back, after a lazy Sunday of softie making and generally doing Sweet FA.  I am a lazy baker.  I generally don’t really ‘do’ baking as there are steps involved and measurements required.  Occasionally I will go a little bit ape sh!t and bake something stupid out of Gourmet Traveller that you have to prepare one luna cycle in advance and whip by hand for like an hour before you add some random expensive ingredient like palaver essence.  

Today I opted for the ‘tweak the packet’ classic.  One box of cake mix, then add fun things like powdered lingonberry and cloudberry, and a bit of yoghurt and some lime.  I made icing thanks to Betty Croker Frosting Mix - add one passionfruit .  

I made these purely as I found these cute little baby cake cases in the supermarket.  

Impulse buy.     

Arctic Berry Mini Cupcakes ... they sound great (they taste ok too).  I am so not telling the guys at work this was a packet mix.

That looks sooo deliciously tasty... I am going to attempt to make some sort of pie from scratch over the weekend. Trying to extend my culinary skills a bit further haha xx

There is absolutely nothing wrong with using a mix. I use a mix to make my favourite gluten free cupcakes - no one ever knows! Next time I am going to experiment with putting raspberries or blueberries in them. My boss got me a cupcake carrier for Xmas which holds 36 cakes - this has not helped my cupcake fetish.
Thanks for visiting my blog btw : )
