I made the Vanilla Cupcake Mix first. The box I received looks like the one in the above picture. The cupcake mix was inside the box in a sealed plastic bag. Our Favorite Frosting Recipes was included: Butter Cream * Chocolate Butter Cream and Cream Cheese Frosting. You need to make your own frosting as this is not included with the mix.
I followed the easy directions on the back of the box. One mix makes one dozen regular sized cupcakes or 24 mini sized. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to mix the ingredients. There were no lumps to crush like I have found in store bought baking mixes. The end result of mixing was a creamy batter with the wonderful aroma of Vanilla.
The Vanilla cupcakes were moist and delicious. They tasted as if they were homemade. The Vanilla flavor was perfect. I knew when I ate the first cupcake that these were far superior to any brand found on Supermarket shelves. I would be proud to serve these to guests.
I made the Cinnamon Streusel Cake Mix next. The box I received looks exactly like the picture on the right. The cake mix was in a sealed plastic bag and the streusel mix was in a seperate sealed plastic bag.
I followed the easy directions on the box and just like the cupcake mix, I found no hard lumps to crush. The end result was a creamy batter slightly thicker than the cupcake batter. I poured half of this into a bundt pan. I then sprinkled half of the streusel mix over the batter , added the rest of the batter and sprinkled the remaining streusel mix on top. I baked it for 20 minutes and then dotted it with 2 tablespoons of butter, returned it to the oven to bake for 35 minutes more. Serves 8-10
This did not come with a glaze mix.
The end result was a mouth – watering delicious Cinnamon Streusel Cake that I went crazy over!
I would like to mention that the Streusel mix contains Walnuts in case this is a concern for anyone. On the back of both mix boxes, -Due to mixing process all of our products may have come in contact with nuts- is written. I wholeheartedly thank them for including this.
I am very excited about both of these because I have never eaten a box mix that was comparable in every way to homemade.
What I find truly notable is that they contain no artificial flavors or preservatives.
