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.

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!
