While diving into leftovers of my twins birthday cake this summer, a friend of mine assumed it was entirely from scratch. Ummm, nope.

If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that I usually bake using cake mixes. In fact this Hello Kitty Cake, the Monster High Cake and the 6-tier Frozen Cake {did I not share photos of this masterpiece? tsk, tsk} are all from cake mixes.

I don’t hide that fact, yet are so surprised that they are boxed cake mix, as ‘they taste homemade’, whatever that means. I think the secret to making boxed cake mix is to never, ever overcook.

In fact, I always undercook just a little and by the time it cools, it’s perfect. I even freeze mine before cutting and icing, and they still always taste light, fluffy and mouthwatering good.

Yet, I really haven’t featured many cake recipes on my blog because I had always assumed that everyone was searching for recipes that were made from scratch. Yet, would I? Probably not. I love the ease of a cake-mixed cake, and you can do so much aside from what’s written on the directions.

So, here starts a new mission for this space, simple yet impressive recipes made with cake mixes, and I can’t wait!

I think chocolate and salted caramel go together so well, it’s the feature combination of this dessert. Yet, a nice vanilla would be perfect as well. 

Go ahead, give it a try, and shock the masses when they hear Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake Cups is made from a cake mix. 

Enjoy!
