Make Every Day a Holiday with Pillsbury Baking // $115 GIVEAWAY

Now that the Holidays are over… are you feeling a little low? With January's wacky weather, Polar Vortex and all, are you looking for something to celebrate? That's the way my family was feeling so, we busted out one of our favorite Pillsbury Baking mixes and got a little creative and made a…



It was  ooey-gooey sweet messy goodness right on a plate. Our goal was not to create the most beautiful cake, but to make a cake that could transport us to somewhere warm and inviting full of fun memories. We thought that sitting in front of a campfire and toasting up some s'mores was the perfect inspiration! 

We started with two boxes of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Dark Chocolate Cake Mix and then went to town trying to create the perfect S'mores Cake.


This is how it ended up… Dark Chocolate Cake with a chocolate ganache and marshmallow graham cracker butter cream filling then topped with more ganache and fresh homemade marshmallow was piped on top and then toasted. YUM!!


I will have the full recipe in a few days because… Pillsbury and I would LOVE to send you some baking inspiration first!

    My boys love anything Strawberry, so I would go with that cake mix and make some fun cupcakes for our Superbowl party.

  2. Valerie B says

    My guys would love a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting…and it HAS to be Pillsbury, 'cuz they have the moistest cakes!  Thanks for letting me enter!

    What a fun give away!!! Being preggers has definitely put me in the baking mood! So excited for the chance to win!

  4. Laura says

    I'd love to try the Golden Butter flavored cake mix.  That would make an excellent base for almost anything.  A butter cake topped with goo chocolate frosting sounds perfect to me.

  5. Susan H. says

    I would use the strawberry cake mix. I would add in swirls of strawberry preserves. I would bake in heart shaped pans. I would frost with a cream cheese icing and decorate with fresh strawberries. This would be a beautiful Valentines dessert.

  6. says

    I love the Perfectly Pumpkin Cookie Mix, looking at the Pumpkin & Cream Cheese Cookies for an after dinner snack for my 6, 4, and 2 year old!

  7. says

    WOWZA!!!  This looks amazing!  I would switch it out to a vanilla cake mix with white chocolate as I'm allergic to chocolate but my friends would all enjoy this version! :D

  8. Allison Downes says

    Yum! I would love to make the 

    Brownie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake using their fudge brownie mix! Thank you for the chance to win this! 

  9. Afton says

    The supreme collection fudge truffle cake mix looks amazing. I don’t think I would need to create anything with it- I would just make it as directed!

  10. Emily M says

    I'm a sucker for FunFetti! It brings out my inner kid! question: do you have any pull with Pillsbury?? If so you totally need to talk to them about having a peppermint cake mix!! I swear it would be fabulous!! 

  11. Wild Orchid says

    I like classic brownie mix. I've been wanting to try some German Chocolate brownies for my Pappy (granddad); he'll be 91 soon and he loves German Chocolate anything!

  13. Doreen says

    Hard to choose one favorite because I use many of them…. but Lemon Cake because I am making lemon poppy seed bread from it frequently.

  14. Susan Christy says

    I would make some Aloha Brownies starting with Classic Fudge Brownie Mix and adding pineapple, coconut and macadamia nuts.
