Let them eat cake!

So Christmas is just a couple of days away and I couldn't be more excited! I love the holidays. All the beautiful decorations,the time spent with family,the baking and of course all the shopping! I'm glad to say that all my shopping is done and all the presents are wrapped. With a baby on the way,the shopping had to be kept to a minimum this year. But I still did not want to forget about my co-workers,neighbors,and extended family. So I  thought, why not Bake them a present? As much as I enjoy making everything from scratch  we all now how hectic the holidays can be. I decided to try some "doctored cake mix" recipes. There are so many yummy recipes out there!
So of course I posted my favorite ones to my Pinterest board. If you haven't checked out Pinterest, you don't know what you're missing out on. It is literally a virtual pinboard for all your ideas! WARNING: IT IS VERY ADDICTING! But so much fun! It is by invite only but if you wish to join leave me your email address and I will be more than happy to send you an invitation. And don't forget to follow me here once you're there!
So back to the subject at hand. I found this delicious looking recipe from Cake Mix Doctor for Chocolate Pound Cake with Peppermint Drizzle using yellow cake mix. It can also be made to be Gluten-Free!So perfect for the holidays!

Another one of my favorites is this Fresh Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting using yellow cake mix and fresh strawberries also from Cake Mix Doctor. So pretty! 
Doesn't this Red Velvet Cake make you want to lick the screen? Ok,maybe just me. It's made using white cake mix. Im not a huge fan of Red Velvet but the Hubby is so I will definitely have to try this one. That glaze looks delicious!
I didn't forget about my fellow chocaholics!! This recipe for "Too much chocolate cake" is super simple. Not that there's such a thing as too much chocolate cake right?


P.S I tried out the peppermint chocolate cake and it was delicious!! It definitely was a hit at our Christmas Party. I baked it in the cutest mini bundt pans! I Will definitely make this again!
