Well, this is a yummy post dealing with one of my favorite brands for baking – Duncan Hines! I recently made some good cupcakes using Duncan Hines with my boyfriend! We bought their Strawberry cake mix and used their Whipped Fluffy White Frosting. We simply baked the cupcakes according to the box’s directions, let them cool, and added the frosting! That was super easy! Here is a picture of some of the yumminess!
Then, my boyfriend had the great idea to add slices of real strawberries to the cupcakes! Granted, it may not look like one of those pretty cupcakes on tv or in a bakery. However, they were really really good! The strawberries on top added some moisture, texture, and color to the cupcake!
I also want to tell my readers about an exciting contest from Duncan Hines! It’s the Red Carpet Cupcake Challenge! Simply submit your best cupcake recipe with a photo and you will have a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles! Your cupcakes maybe presented to stars going to the Emmy Awards and you may get a ticket to the pre-Emmy Fans in the Stands! If you think you have some awesome cupcakes, be sure to enter the contest! You have until July 21st to submit your recipe. There will then be a voting phase until July 28th! So, all of my readers may go and vote for your favorite, even if you don’t submit an entry! This voting narrows the crowd down to the top 10 and then a judging committee will pick the winner! You can find more info about this lovely contest at the link above! If you do enter, please let me know! : )
Also, I know that many people are getting together for the 4th of July this weekend and maybe baking. So, I wanted to point out a great recipe on the Duncan Hines website! How about a great Flag Cake that has some blueberries and strawberries? Doesn’t this look awesome? I didn’t try it, but I think it looks great!
I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July!
