6 Treats You Can Make From Boxed Cake Mix

We all grab a box or 2 of cake mix when they go on sale at the grocery store for, like, $1.00.  I'm sure many of you, like me,  have at least one lonely box of mix patiently waiting in the pantry, hoping desperately to be used.  One of the only problems is that I don't often bake cakes.  I mean, apart from a birthday, who really whips up a cake from boxed mix and frosts it, just for fun?

Not me.

Unless it's Friday night, the kids are in bed, and I'm reallllllly hungry.

I digress.

It's not always feasible to bake up a cake, complete with frosting, for a tasty treat.  And, sometimes a plain frosted cake can seem kind of blah.  So it's nice to spice things up and offer something new.  Sometimes just a little tweak, a small change or a slight surprise makes all the difference.


Here we go.

I have some great alternative treats to make with boxed cake mix.  It will liven up your treat offerings, and some of these recipes will blow your mind. Good-bye, boring old frosted cake. Hello new fun treats!
