Recovering from a cold, and without enough energy to make a 'real' scratch cake, and too bored to be imaginative, I turn to you.
And, I will be frank, this is just an excuse to eat frosting (for me, but, as there are guests coming so I can't just eat if from the bowl...sigh)
So what can I do with this box of Duncan Hines Spice Cake mix: I have eggs, rum, apples, butter, shortening, icing sugar, oil, walnuts, pecan, peanuts, crystalized ginger (the jammy kind) and, oh, all sorts of other stuff that people who usually pride themselves on good, from-scratch high-minded baking usually have. Just no energy...
Is there help for me or should I just send my husband to the bakery and go back to bed?
