Bundt Cakes with a Twist

Mini Bundt Cakes Coated in Chocolate Almond Bark........mmmmmm

You will need.....
any cake mix
almond bark
and a mini bundt cake pan

I tried a new brand of almond bark, that came with a tray to microwave the chocolate in.
Less dishes for me=happy :)

So after you have baked your mini cakes let them cool for a about 10-15 minutes.

Then heat up your almond bark
(you might have to add a little oil to make it thin)
then dipping!

You can add sprinkles or any other topping at this time.
Then let the almond bark harden and ENJOY!!

Decorating Bag Take 1

I have been wanting to try a decorating bag for some time. I finally found one that was cheap enough so I thought I would try my hand at decorating.

Here I am with everything ready to go!

I started with a Pillsbury Funfetti mix because I always have one on hand(it's my husband's favorite cake) and a can of white frosting.

Mixing the batter

In the oven they go!!

I decided to try and make two-toned frosted cupcakes. Probably not the smartest thing to do since it was my first time using a decorating bag but I thought I would give it a shot. I absolutely love the Betty Crocker classic gel food colors.

I was hoping for prettier colors but I only had yellow and green left.

Hmmm....I don't think this is supposed to happen when you are using a decorating bag. Looks like I need a lot more practice.

The finished product!

I also decided to do white cupcakes with sprinkles.

I think they turned out pretty good for my first attempt!
