I’ve been known to make a dessert concoction or two, but this one may take the cake… the waffle cake. See what I did there? No, but seriously. It’s kind of the like the easy bake oven way of making an individual serving of cake without actually having to tell someone you own an easy bake oven. All you have to do is own up to having a waffle maker and the rest is socially acceptable.
This mini waffle cake recipe is as easy as stirring the ingredients together for boxed cake mix and pouring it over your waffle maker and you can mix and match whatever cake and icing flavor you want. It doesn’t really get better than that and it’s almost dangerously easy…
- Boxed cake mix and necessary add ins (or your favorite homemade mix)
- Choice of icing
- Small bowl for warming
Mix the box cake mix and necessary add-ins, and pour a small amount over the warmed waffle maker and cook just long enough to turn golden brown and hold it’s shape.
In a small bowl, microwave your icing for 10 seconds and then drizzle over the waffle cake. Give it a little umph with a dash of sprinkles and you’re all set!
Not to get all chubby on you or anything, but wouldn’t this be so good with a scoop of ice cream too? On second thought, I should probably have dinner before I try and write recipes posts.
Also, I just jumped on the Fitbit bandwagon and I’m a little obsessed. It helps make up for my ridiculous concoctions. Do any of you have one?
I have a tendency to be an over thinker when it comes to just about everything. It’s not one of my better attributes most of the time considering it normally is just a nice way of saying I worry too much. I’m trying to break out of that bad habit and replace it with a little more spontaneity, even if that means taking a mid-week break to a new city like New Orleans!
Have you ever been? I’ve always wanted to go and seeing as how I only live 5 hours away now, there’s really no excuse. I think I’m most excited to see the historical architecture than anything else, but I’d really love to hear your suggestions on places to see! We’ll just be there for a quick 24 hour stint and making good use of my Hotel Tonight addiction, but anything I can squeeze in I will. Be sure to follow along on Instagram!

Please note that the question mark in the title for this project is supposed to be there. I had a bit of an identity crisis with my original DIY and it morphed into something a little different halfway through. These things happen to me quite a bit. Instead of just editing out the funky stuff and leaving you with a cut and dry finished product, I thought I’d just go ahead and share the messy details and let you decide which project you liked best!
Alas, here we have DIY speckled sprinkles. Originally I wanted to tint white sprinkles and cover white chocolate Reese’s cup eggs with them to look like edible speckled eggs for Easter. I did that first, but then somewhere along the line I ended up rimming glasses of milk with the sprinkles to style the egg photos with and then somehow ended up with more picture of rimmed milk glasses than I did of eggs. I guess this means I liked that idea a bit better, but no one says you can’t have both…

I know I’m a little late on this, but I’m excited to finally share a few details from the Etsy Pop-Up at West Elm Houston that I hosted and curated! Now whether or not walking up to shops you curated and mentioning that you may or may not stalk them on Instagram and possibly walking by the macaron table that Sweet provided one too many times makes you a good hostess or not is still up for debate. Regardless, I was so excited when West Elm asked me to participate!
I also happened to be able to catch my brother in all of his glory with his very first Smilebooth experience! He’s pretty cute, huh? I’ve been told we look alike..
