A Cup of Cake

Kids love cake! I love cake! Who doesn't like cake? The Boy likes cake but does not like frosting (weirdo!) The glorious thing about this recipe is that you can have your cake any way you like it and it is the perfect size that you do not feel guilty about having some cake.

A girlfriend of mine told me about this super easy cake recipe. It was so easy and yummy I wanted to share it!

As with any recipe, you start by gathering up your needed supplies. This is easy. Three things. You want to start with a simple, one step Angel Food Cake Mix from a box. Second you need a second cake mix. Any flavor will work. I had a simple white cake on hand so I used it. Third, and last, you need a large air tight container.

The next step is to mix the two cake mixes together. I used a large mixing bowl and a wooden spoon.

Next you take 1/4 of cup of the mixture and add 3 tablespoons of water to it in a coffee cup.

Mix it up well. Microwave it for 1 minute.

Easy enough that your young ones can do it by themselves. (With minimal supervision, that is!)

Afterwards, you have a small portion of cake!

The glorious part, everyone gets to decide how to top their cake! No fighting, no fussing, no picky eaters! Everyone is happy. It is a win-win.

The top cake is topped with fresh peaches and whipped topping. Middle cup is cake topped with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. Bottom cake is topped with hot fudge and whipped topping (it is also a double portion, The Boy is growing!)

With the variety of cake mixes available out there and the wide options for topping, I wonder what you will come up with?

Hope you enjoy this easy recipe as much as we did!



  1. Yummo!!!!! I'm going to have to give this a try! :)

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Liver Cheese: A Family Tradition

Today is an anniversary date. One of those dates you wish you did not have to remember but there is no way you can forget. 
Fifteen years ago today,two days after his birthday, my father died of lung cancer. He was a lifelong smoker and his cancer was aggressive. His battle was short. He fought for six short months after his diagnosis. He knew the chemo was not working and that his time was limited. When he came to this realization he became the best dad in the world. 
In the days before my father's passing, my family shared some memorable moments. One of those moments centers around the deli meat: Liver Cheese.I would not be surprised if you have never heard of it, or even never tasted it. But I was raised on it as it was one of my Dad's favorite things. 
What is it? Well, it is a German food that is actually called Leberkase. It is bacon, corned beef, pork, and onion that is ground together and baked. It comes with a lard ring around the meat {which kinda grosses me out, so …

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…
