Last week I made Pumpkin Spice Bars and took them to work to so they are not sitting around my house tempting me SHARE!!! My co-worker Cicely told me she did not like pumpkin but she would give them a try! She was still sure after trying them that she did not like pumpkin or my bars!!! However, she did like the cream cheese frosting!! She asked me if I could make a yellow cake mix with cream cheese icing!!! So, I tried out a new recipe that I found for Homemade Yellow Cake Mix this weekend.
The cake was good but not great!!! The girls and Michael both said it was delicious. I was hoping it would be a little more moist. Again, it was good but will probably not make it again. There is another recipe I would like to try that I think will be more moist.
The cream cheese icing I used for this recipe is not the same one listed on my blog for the Pumpkin Spice Bars. I took this recipe from my friend over at Lick The Bowl Good .
The technique I used for the "C" on the cupcake is the same one I used for "BU" on the sugar bears!!
