One thing that’s been kind of a bummer during isolation is the inability to just jump in the car and go to the store whenever I get a craving for something.  I was telling a friend how I wished I had thought to grab a box or two of cake mix while I was shopping to stock our kitchen for a few weeks.  Sure, I could also head to Pinterest and make my own cake mix (which I’ll probably end up doing one of these days). But it’s so much easier to just dump a mix in a bowl and throw a cake in the oven! Don’t worry. I’ll make do! 

But if you’re lucky enough to have a box of cake mix sitting in your kitchen cabinet, you’ll be able to make everything from cake, cookies, and donuts to cake pops, cobblers, and trifles!   If you’re having a craving for something sweet, break out the cake mix and get baking!  Oh, and by the way, if you have cake mix that’s about to expire, but you’re not in the mood for sweets, you can freeze an unfrosted cake to enjoy later!  When your craving hits, just take it out of the freezer to thaw and frost! 

Satisfy your sweet tooth while you’re stuck inside with these delicious dessert recipes made with a box of cake mix!
