Baking Away~ Foodbuzz Tastemakers
Holy Smokes! Someone must of heard my prayers, when I was going crazy with the “Hubby’s Birthday/Thanksgiving Day” Feast preparations! Being part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker’s program, I received coupons for Duncan Hines and Comstock-Wilderness Fruit Fillings! The best part is that I’ve got 8 additional coupons for my readers!! YAYYYYYY~ Isn’t that groovy! ( sorry, I only got 1 Comstock-wilderness coupon, and for hubby’s special birthday cake, I needed that baby!! ) I’ll be giving away these coupons, so check on the bottom of this post to see how to get entered in this giveaway!
Now to the good stuff!…
I chose to make this fabulous cake using Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix! For the filling and topping, I chose to use the Blueberry Flavor! I made a delicious whipped cream cheese frosting, using fat free cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar! YUMMA LUMMA~~
Using 1 box and 2 9” round pans, I got a 2 layer cake! Yes, this is exciting people!! My first time to ever make a 2 layer cake!~~ I usually opt for the easy spread cake.
On the first layer, I put half of the filling and spread it evenly!
My sister, who was my sous chef that day, put the second layer of cake on top, and added the whipped frosting on the sides of the cake. Then, the blueberry sauce right on top, gave it the beautiful look to this cake!!She also came up with the great idea of adding some crushed walnut/brown sugar mixture on the sides and top of the cake, and OMGosh, it was just delicious!!
Here was the cake, put into the fridge to do it’s thing, and chill out in there!
Sometimes, you just do not have the time to do everything! Especially being in a small apt, with a small kitchen, and cooking for a crowd on a big and special day… You need the help! I am so glad that I got these coupons from Duncan Hines/ Comstock- Wilderness, just in time! It was easy, and delicious! Just a great way to end a wonderful evening!!
