Summer should be full of bright colors and bold flavors, and the foods of summer are no exception. Grills come out to cook meats and veggies, and fresh fruits get incorporated into everything from drinks to dessert. Even cake and cookie mixes can get into the summer spirit, and Pillsbury‘s seasonal Key Lime and Orangesicle mixes are the perfect example. They have bold colors and flavors that fit in well with the spirit of the season, but let you cut down on some of the time you have to spend in the kitchen when it comes to entertaining. To kick-start the summer, I’m hosting a summer giveaway from Pillsbury that includes over $120 of goodies that will allow you to celebrate everyday occasions even better.
The giveaway includes:
- One box of Pillsbury Funfetti Premium Cake & Cupcake Mix
- Funfetti Frostings (1 each of four new frosting flavors)
- One box each Summer Seasonal Cake & Cookie Mixes
- Frostings (1 of each of Creamy Supreme Key Lime and Creamy Supreme Orangesicle)
- $100 dollar Visa or American Express gift card
To enter the contest, just leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite summertime treat to bake is. The winner of the contest will be chosen at random, so those who love to bake fudgy brownies to take to weekend picnics will have just as much chance of winning as those who serve up simple strawberry shortcakes! The contest ends at midnight Sunday, May 26th and one winner will be randomly selected from the entries at that time. Don’t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be made public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck to everyone!
And if you need some inspiration when it comes to putting those mixes to good use, try my Orangesicle Magic Bars
Or my festive Funfetti Ice Cream Cone Tuiles, which you’d never believe were made with cake mix.
Update: Comments are now closed. The winner will be announced shortly!
