I firmly maintain that somedays even a baker just wants to get to the end result.  Somedays we (the collective of bakers out there) want to skip over the experimenting, the loads and piles of dirty dishes, the recipe searching, the flour dust, and the fifty steps to create the perfect cupcake. Somedays we just want to get to the good stuff.

Yesterday was one of those days for me. There has been a lingering half full box of butter yellow cake mix laying around since I made my Pumpkin dump cake.

 Ben’s absolutely favorite cake is yellow cake from a box with chocolate frosting.

Although it’s not my favorite way to bake, I will concede every once in a while to make the man happy.

And sometimes even on these lazy baking days, even I have to admit that it is really nice to just have that instant gratification.
