Long Summer Days and Nights call for family adventure time in my home. Every Summer my home transforms from three kids to a six-seven household. It’s always great being the favorite Auntie and with that brings the joy of all of my cousins, nephews and niece wanting to stay with me for the majority of the Summer which means I must become creative with activities for all ages. A few months ago I was provided with an amazing blogger package and inside was a box of the Duff Goldman Tie-Dye Premium Cake Mix so what better time than the present time to put the product to the test. I decided to switch up the listed ingredients so I didn’t follow the box instructions. I will show you what the instructions call for and in bold letters what I substituted the ingredients with to add a different flavor to the cake. Lets get started!
Contents of Duff Goldman Tie Dye Premium Cake
- Cake Mix
- Red Coloring

- 1 1/3 Cups Water (Substituted 1 1/3 Cup Whole Milk)

- Added 1 Teaspoon of Wilton Vanilla Extract
Bake on 350 as directed.
Once the batter was mixed in my Kitchen Aid it was separated into six bowls and colored. The kids then took turns filling a dozen cupcake liners. I decided to add a twist on our activity and teach them how to make cupcake ice cream cones. The process is the same as making cupcakes except you fill the ice cream cones half way, place in the cupcake pan and pack for 20 minutes or until done. Once they are done and cool simply add buttercream icing to look like ice-cream.
**I was able to stretch this batter to make 12 cupcakes, 12 cupcake ice cream cones and a six inch one layer cake**
