|The Birthday Beach Bum and I.|
This past weekend we celebrated my middle son Chase's 3rd birthday.
We were a little on the fence on if we should cancel or continue on with our celebration weekend. We ALL got sick AGAIN!
What a rough winter it has been in the Bakeaholic household.
We ended up canceling his b-day trip to the museum but left our Sunday party plans in check.
Because I was dealing with sick kids and a big baby sick husband.... On a side note... why is it husbands are such babies when they get sick? When mom's get sick, we are on our own, we get no 'sick' days! But the world stops when the big guys get sick. ;)
So I resorted to a box mix... and store bought frosting.
Please don't judge me lol....
Here is what I did for the cake.... 3 boxes of white cake mix, mix according to box directions but then add a tsp of orange extract, and 2 drops of orange food dye into each mix. Each mix will make 2 8 inch round cakes.
Frost with cream cheese frosting.
For my 6 layers I went through 5 containers of frosting.
Walla.... 6 layer creamsicle cake!
Now I'm curious.... do any of you have ways of sprucing up a boxed cake mix??
