Go On, Bake a Cake!

In honor of SF's big announcement, I suggest you bake a cake. Why? Well, not only is her sale totally cake-worthy, but I have discovered two insanely fun, TWO INGREDIENT cakes!

Cake number one: Mix any boxed cake mix with 10 ounces of any diet soda. You have to take a few sips of the standard 12 ounce can first, BUT, I am told this makes one helluva a cake. Cool, huh? My neighbor told me about it yesterday after mixing a chocolate cake mix with a diet strawberry soda. That was the only soda she had but it was still a Win-ner! She recommends a yellow cake with a diet sprite.

Cake number two: Mix any boxed cake with one 15 ounce can of pumpkin. I've heard this one is awesome too! And best made with a chocolate cake. SF actually told me about it.

Both recipes are intended for cupcakes, and I think you cook both at like 375 for maybe 20 minutes? You might have to experiment. But still. Awesome, huh?

Go on, bake a cake!

pumpkin and chocolate?? seriously? I dunno.

It sounds kind of weird.

(But after seeing the picture, there will be cupcakes on one kind or another in the Thomas house today!!)

Really??? But cupcakes are always good - so it'd be worth a try :)

Oh, yummy! I can't wait to try them both - especially the pumpkin one. Thanks for the recipes! :-)

Yay you guys! That's awesome. And any excuse to eat cake!

Really? Really those work?
I need to have my experimental baker friend do this for me.
Nice blog, and congrats on the good news!

Use a muffin mix and the pumpkin and you have a weight watchers recipe! And yes, the chocolate and pumpkin does taste good!

Wish you could have gone to SCBWI-LA, it was a remarkable wxperience!
