Did you notice anything new???
Yay for blog makeover! It's still not completely done but it's getting there. My DIY diesease knows no limits I guess. Because I was determined to create my logo and blog layout by myself...even though I know a small fraction about either of them :)
Did you notice the new social media icons? It took me a good bit but I actually made them myself. So now new or old friends easily connect up on facebook, pintrest, blogger, or email. Yay!
They look fierce right?
Have you guys noticed all the new baking things popping up? I am always seeing something new out...I'm pretty sure we can thank reality TV for that :) There are two new things I've came across that I've been wanting to try...Duff cake mix and Duncan Hines icing flavor packets.
When I ran across his boxed cake mix at the grocery store I knew I had to try it. It was just slightly more then the other brands, I've seen it at Micheals for much much more. Duff's cakes are awesome of course, and I was so curious to see if his mix was different then the normal cake mix. I've had the pleasure of meeting Duff and some of his crew twice now....and tasting his yummy cake and boy would that be great if it could come from a box instead of a cake worth more then my car ;)
Would you belive me if I said this was a cake? Well it is! The talent this crew has is just unreal (and unfair!). The only thing about cake like this is...who wants to chop up the dog to eat it, eh?
Back to the cupcakes...I baked them exactly how the box said. I resisted every urge to add things! After 18 minutes in the over they came out great! I used my normal 3TBS in each cupcakes. I was really impressed how they raised so well in perfect cupcake form!
