Sorry about the corny title, but this is always what springs to mind when l see her name. I love all things about Donna Hay and you could even say l have a deep fascination with her. For many months whenever l'm in David Jones l always eye of these beautifully packaged Cupcake Mixes, but could never justify spending $14.95 on a Cupcake Mix that only makes 12 when l could easily make 24 for considerably less. That is until they came on sale, even at $8.95 I still find them expensive but if you are novice in the kitchen and want to make something special with a home made taste l would differently try these. The packet contains, the cake mix, icing mix and 12 cupcake case although l actually got 20. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.
The mixture is quite thick, which makes it a bit tricky to get even amounts in the cases. I normally would use a piping bag when adding the mixture, but thought l should sticks to basics and just used two spoons. I was worried that l might have varying sized cupcake but as you can see they all came out pretty even.
The cakes are light and fluffy and slightly crunchy on the outside which l love, I'm not a huge fan of the icing but I'm not big of chocolate icing.
