Tree of Plenty

This tree stump is multi-functional. I can make it with any frosting flavor like the bubble gum flavor for a fairy tree stump or the cherry vanilla for a baby shower. There are so many uses! The picture submitted is an Easter tree stump.

Tips

Moist Cakes and Cupcakes

Moist Cakes and Cupcakes

To improve any box mix, substitute buttermilk for the water in the recipe and add 2 Tbl of instant pudding powder. (Chocolate pudding powder for Choc cakes, Vanilla for all other cakes). Mix and bake as usual, adding a minute or two more to the baking time. The cake will be level on top, for easier icing, and is very moist, tasting like homemade. My family can't believe the difference!

cutting brownies

I love to bring hot brownies to work, but hate cutting them when they are cool. I use a silicone spatula to cut the brownies as soon as they come from the oven. Nice and neat, no torn edges, and the brownies on the outside cut just as smoothly as the center.
