IT'S A....

Neither of us were really surprised because this pregnancy has been so different compared with my first.  But at the same time it's still sinking in for me.  A girl!? Wow! Ahh!

We get together with friends every Wednesday night and decided to tell them our happy news with a happy dessert. I used Betty Crocker cake mixes (because...ain't nobody got time for scratch). I fancied up the white cake mix with the recipe below, and used THIS recipe for the frosting and filling.

White Almond Cupcakes

  • 1 package white cake mix
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 4 egg whites

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Fill cupcake pan with liners.
  2. Stir together the white cake mix, flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed. Pour in the water, sour cream, vegetable oil, almond extract, and egg whites. Beat in a stand mixer until all the ingredients are well mixed.
  3. Scoop the batter into cupcake liners, and bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean (15-20 min). Allow to cool before frosting.
