Pamela's Products White Cake Mix

Homemade frosting is a delicious and decadent treat that is easy to make.  Great frosting can enhance a store-bought goodie or finish the finest of your homemade desserts.

Both the lemon and cinnamon versions of this frosting are delicious on carrot or spice cake.  For an easy dessert, make a batch of Namaste Spice Cake and frost with homemade frosting.  The cake mix can be made as a spice cake or a carrot cake and is delicious as cupcakes.  Another easy-to-make and delicious cake mix is from Pamela’s Products.  Pamela’s also has a terrific frosting mix, if you don’t want to make your frosting from scratch.
