Review: Naturally Nora Cake and Frosting Mix

So, after winning a whole lotta these, I thought I'd share my reviews of Naturally Nora Cake and Frosting Mixes. While I think 100% homemade baked from scratch is best, these are the next best thing I have to say. I was also kind enough to share my winnings and spread the word, between family and friends. To find a retailer near you click here.

"Naturally Nora® all-natural cake mixes and frosting mixes are deliciously
fun for the whole family! Made with NO artificial flavors, colors,
preservatives, or hydrogenated oils. Dairy-free, Soy-free, Kosher."

Check this out, compared to the other store bought box mixes out there, which would you rather eat? Take a look below at what I found online! Click the image:

I tried the Sunny Yellow cake and Cheerful Chocolate frosting flavors first. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag of mix, was how wonderful it smelled! Then how sparkly it was from the sugar, it was pretty. When mixed into batter, you'll notice it wasn't a bright yellow like the other boxed cake mixes. That's because there are no artificial colors in these! They came together nicely and baked so perfectly, with pretty mounds (of course I filled them almost full). The frosting is great too, tastes almost homemade. I particularly liked how easy the cupcake liners came off too, they didn't pull any cake apart.

preBirthday cupcakes: yellow cake with chocolate stars and vanilla frosting

Our little guy turned 2 recently, and we celebrated his party another day, but made him these for his birthday. I didn't have any oil, so I used applesauce instead. They turned out pretty good! I've never swapped the two ingredients before, so wasn't sure really what to expect. I did notice the cupcakes were more of a dense sponge like texture, and I notice a slight taste difference as well. Both in good ways though.

chocolate cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting

I recently met up with old friends for a BBQ, and made some of the Cheerful Chocolate cupcakes and made a peanut butter frosting by mixing in 1/4 C. of Wild Harvest Organic creamy peanut butter I was reviewing. They came out great! I also took 3 cake & frosting boxes with me and did a quick raffle with friends. Now they get to try the cake and frosting too!

Utah isn't blessed with Nora's products, but I'm flying to TN in June and have had a note in my purse for a couple of months now of a store there that carries Nora's cake mixes. I plan to stock up! Maybe take an empty suitcase with me on the plane! By the way, I have a granddaughter named Nora. Can't go wrong with a name like that!

Those cupcakes look amazing. I just wish some company would make a cake mix that was really good that didn't contain wheat or eggs (I'm allergic).
