I have a confession: I work for a website that writes about food everyday, but I have yet to make a successful anything from scratch in my life. Don’t tell the boss man. Needless to say, I have become quite adept at using cake mixes. So as a cake mix master, it is my duty to round-up some of my favorite cake mix recipes, and share them with you, the much better baker I’m sure. I am huge fan of cake mixes not only because of my less than average baking skills, but because they make quick and easy desserts in any flavor you can imagine. Try any of these yummy cake concoctions below for a dessert that will make you completely rethink your trusty old cake mix.
