Sunday evening I made the Sprinkles Vanilla Cake mix! Let me just tell you how good it was...my parents think I made it from scratch. Sorry Mom, if you're reading this right now.
The mix is $14, but let me tell you now...it is worth it! You won't ever want to buy the 89 cent Duncan Hines mix again. Either that, or you'll want to start making yours from scratch, because no other mix that I know of now will beat this.
Some things I noticed. the mix calls for 1 egg and 2 egg whites instead of the 3 full eggs I'm used to. The way they have you mix the ingredients was a bit different. You didn't add liquid or vanilla until the very very last...and the eggs went in themselves. The batter was very thick. Lastly, the frosting was very, very thick and they have you make it all from scratch. It was great! Oh, and the modern dots are edible...but I only had one of them from the number-that-will-remain-unknown cupcakes that I consumed. I also used Williams-Sonoma's Silicups, I think they added to the moist goodness.
The cupcakes were so dense and moist. I really couldn't believe it. I can only imagine how amazing the fresh ones from the Sprinkles shop taste.
