Complete Cake Mix Magic

With three sons and a newborn daughter I just don't have as much time as I use to,  which is why I usually do not have time to make things from scratch,  including cakes!  That is why I was excited to review the Complete Cake Mix Magic cookbook.  This cookbook is packed full of cake recipes that are made by using cake mixes, and not just any cake mixes, Duncan Hines!  What better way to enhance a cake mix then to add ingredients to it to make it your very own creation. Okay, maybe it's not your very own creation,  but your guests will think it is!  Hey, semi-homemade is better than not homemade at all and besides it saves us time too! 

With a little bit of help from this cookbook you will be transforming regular cake mixes into delicious mouth watering desserts in no time!  The Complete Cake Mix Magic Cookbook includes 288 total pages filled with 45 color photos and over three hundred scrumptious recipes.  The cookbook is broken down into twelve chapters full of sections like Tube and Bunt Cakes, Cheesecakes, Cookies, Bars and Squares and more!  It also includes a full introduction complete with plenty of helpful information such as tips and techniques. 

As I flipped through the pages I came across yummy recipes like Chocolate Macaroon Ring Cake, Decedant Chocolate Almond Cake, Peanut Butter Chocolate Squares and so many more.  But the one that stood out the most is the Peanut Butter and Banana Cake.  Ironically I have been planning to have a Peanut Butter and Banana cake made at a bakery for my son's birthday coming up soon and now I am thinking of making him one instead. How could I go wrong with peanut butter and bananas for my boys!

Jill Snyder is the author of this magnificant cookbook.  She Not only is she a bestselling cookbook author but also a highly respected food stylist and recipe developer.

this is a must have for any baker, it would be nice to please your guest with something different and they will be surprised that it was just made with a Duncan Hines Cake mix. The Peanut Butter and Banana Cake sounds Yummy! I am anxious to peek at their cheesecake recipes.
