I can't believe it. Christmas is almost here! Thank you to everyone who took advantage of our email newsletter special. I can't wait to bake and decorate your holiday cookies! We are just about booked for Christmas, but can take on a few more orders, so get your's in today! Oh, and if you don't get our newsletter, sign up on our home page at so that you will know about our next special!

For those that are baking this holiday season, or any time really, I wanted to share a cake recipe that I used before I switched to scratch. This is a perfectly delicious cake, moist and more dense than a box cake.

Prepare cake mix per package directions and then add:
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 cup white sugar
8 oz. sour cream
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Bake per package directions.

It's as easy as that! It gives you a bit more batter and the sour cream adds moistness, but not really any flavor, so don't worry if you aren't a big fan of sour cream. You can also add in your favorite holiday spices (cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, etc.) to give it a more holiday feel.

Take care everyone...Happy Holidays...and happy baking!
