Take birthday cake for example, I have spent hours and fortunes on fancy cakes with fondant decorations or “secret” expensive ingredients.
But, as I can attest from this past weekend’s Memorial Day/DIL Birthday cake, my family absolutely and totally went gaga over a simple Betty Crocker Supermoist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix baked in a 13×9 pan with white frosting and fresh fruit on top.
For the frosting, I mixed half a tub of Duncan Hines Fluffy White Frosting Mix and half of a large container of Cool Whip. Canned frosting alone is way too sweet. Cool Whip alone just doesn’t hit the mark. Together, though, they are a marriage made in heaven! AMAZING Frosting! Try it – I’ll bet you get raves!
And to really rock it out, a scoop of Birthday Party ice cream doesn’t hurt either! (Hagan Parlor Favorites makes a yummy Birthday Party flavor that has confetti chips and CHUNKS of birthday cake in the ice cream!)
Even those of you who don’t consider yourselves “Kitchenistas” can be Rock Stars with this easy combo!
Sometimes simple is the sweetest.
Cheers & Hugs,
