Feel free to spam me via PM!

My daughter loves her Cupcake Maker and Easy Bake. I wanted to make her a bunch of mixes for Christmas, but I am seriously lacking energy this pregnancy. Does anyone know of any place on line that would make me a bunch of homemade mixes for a reasonable (ie: not as much as buying the official ones) amount of money?

And yes, I seriously do not have the energy or inclination to do this and am willing to pay. Just not out the nose, LOL!

I don't know if it would work or not, but I make mini cakes in the microwave using a packaged cake mix. I add water until it's a good consistency, then cook for about 60 seconds. You could probably do the same thing to make them easy bake friendly. Just portion them out in advance and figure out how much water to add to get the right consistency.

Dd1 has an Easy Bake, and we were told to use the following 'magic formula' :
3 Tbsp. of cake or muffin mix to 1 Tbsp. of water per Easy Bake pan. It seems to work very well, and you can probably get a bunch of cakes out of one mix.
Not sure where you'd get them on-line though.....

I buy cheap box mixes when they are on sale and let the girls bake away. even if we don't use the whole mix we only have about a dollar into it....

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
