Boxed Cake Mix and Canned Frosting...Yummy!

Pillsbury Funfetti Cake and Betty Crocker Vanilla Frosting
"Everyone's Favorite?"

Today is my friend Jen's birthday. (Happy Birthday Jen!!...pssst-"You're Old" Hahahahha!)
She is the creator and host of Casual Slack which boasts many dedicated readers of her daily nonsense. I mean this in a good way. She works hard to make the sometimes mundane week, exciting and funny! Check it out-but beware parental guidance is recommended. ;)

So on to the cake. Funfetti cake is Jen's favorite cake, as well as my neice's. As a matter of fact it seems like everyone likes this cake. I have to admit I never really thought I would like it. Why? First of all because it is not chocolate and it just seems kind of juvenile. I mean with all the sugar and colored sprinkles in it.

But it seems like every time I make it, I say to myself I'm not going to eat a piece and somehow it calls to me. I end up eating it and liking it. I guess it just brings out the kid in all of us!

I just found this recipe for Funfetti Cookies. It got some really great reviews. I guess I'll have to give it a try.
Even better, why don't you make them and let me know what you think!

Those cookies are excellent! You have to try them but I prefer to use shortening in place of the oil. They are even better with funfetti frosting between two of them. I love your site!
