Baking Made Easy for Busy Families + WIN Betty Crocker Gift Sets

Since our lives are so busy nowadays, I haven't had time to cook at home as much as I used to, let alone bake. However, whenever I try to especially for Lil Pumpkin's birthday {e.g. this year's Red Velvet Cupcake Cones} or special gatherings, I usually turn to Betty Crocker's fast and simple mixes.

They save me so much time and effort, and there's hardly a chance for me to ruin the recipe so they turn up delicious 99% of the time! Such a life-saver for busy mums like me (*^▽^)/

There's really no need to buy a thousand-and-one baking ingredients just for the occasional cake or cookie, when you just need 3 with Betty Crocker and I love that they have a wide variety of cake, cookie, muffin & brownie mixes {some with even low-fat options} to choose from.

No worries even if I want to change the given box recipe for an interesting twist - I'd just check out the Betty Crocker website for tips, cute ideas and recommendations from other Betty Crocker home bakers. Easy peasy.

This year, as part of Singapore's 50th birthday, Betty Crocker will be attempting to set a Guinness World Record for "Largest Cupcake Mosaic".

This initiative will see people from all walks of life - regardless of whether they have baking experience - in a collaborative effort to give back to the community as the finished product will be distributed to partner beneficiaries and charities.

Drop by the event with your children and experience how easy it is to make a delicious cupcake with Betty Crocker cake mix and witness the unveiling of the record this Saturday 1 Aug, 4pm in Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

For any enquiries, please email bettycrockersg50@gmail.com ☜(⌒▽⌒)

I do love this brand. I used it a lot. They've never disappointed me. Your creation looks great. I made some ice cream cone cupcakes like this before, but didn't get as fancy. They were just vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate.
