Queen Cakes

So Queenie came to stay last weekend. Such an occasion must of course warrent a cake! Well, a derivation of a Betty Crocker box mix actually, made for a queen.
Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate Cake Mix- Butter Recipe
Butter - I melt as I have no mixer
Water - whatever quantity it says on the box
Milk Chocolate Chips - chopped somewhat chunky

Lovely Pink Polka Dot cupcake cups picked for the occasion by Jenna

Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate Frosting
Mint Extract

Anna's Mint Chocolate Cookies - other suggestions: York Peppermint Patties, Thin Mints (which I wish I had when making these)

I mixed up a little bit over 2 tbsp of the extract for the whole tub of frosting. The flavor was that of a Mini York Peppermint Patty. A little less extract, a little more Thin-Mint. A little more extract, Starlight Mint.


  1. Will you go to Baked in Redhook to try the chocolate salty caramel cake? I am thinking of baking it but need confirmation that it is truly divine. I remember it from Charleston but that may have just been the humidity.....

  2. Oh wasn't the humidity. It was divine. But for sure I will!!
