Betty Crocker Goodies!! - Review!!

Recently I was asked if I would like to review some of the Betty Crocker products....Of course I said yes! I never refuse cake....Even if I have to make it myself....hehehe I like to bake but I like to cheat and use cake mixes....

We were sent:

Red Velvet Cake mix.
This Red Velvet Cake oozes sophistication with its ruby-coloured, luscious sponge and rich chocolately flavour.

Devil's Food Cake mix.
Whip up something rich, dark and gorgeous with this decadent chocolate cake mix. Betty Crocker’s Devil’s Food Cake Mix is beautifully quick and easy to make, with incredible results. Fall in love with the rich chocolate fudge flavour of the moist, light and delicious sponge.

Chocolate Fudge Icing. - Rich, tempting and utterly mouth-watering!

Vanilla Buttercream. - Smooth, creamy and full of flavour!

Vanilla Icing & Rainbow Sprinkles. - Vanilla Icing with the addition of Rainbow Sprinkles! These little drops of heaven will give your fresh bakes that extra touch of glamour, for an instant beautifying treatment. 

Leading up to Valentines day Ellie had mentioned she wanted to some baking and when she had found out Stu and I were having a romantic meal she wanted to help make dessert....I thought the Devil's Food Cake mix with Chocolate Fudge Icing sounded perfect....

All you need is:
1x Pack of Betty Crocker's Devil's Food Cake Mix
90ml vegetable oil (4½ tbsp)
250ml water
3 medium eggs.
1 tub of Betty Crocker's Chocolate Fudge Icing
Cream for the filling.
2 x 8" well-greased cake tins

It was just simply a case of mixing the oil, water, eggs and cake mix together and bake in the over for about 25 minutes....When they had baked and cooled I sandwiched them together, put whipped cream in the middle and covered in the chocolate icing! Ellie said we needed sprinkles so put a heart cutter on and filled it with sprinkles....hehehe

I was impressed and Stu actually thought I had bought it.....At least I had the photos to prove I made it myself....lol

It tasted as good as it looked!!....The mixes might cost a little bit more than then the supermarket own brands which I usually buy but I am converted.....You really can tell the difference.....I will be buying these in future....They're moist, very delicious and so simple to make!! The icing is also delicious....I imagined it to be quite sickly from the smell of it but it isn't....

I'm so glad I'm not on a diet as it's all gone now! lol Tomorrow Ellie and I are going to make the Red Velvet cake with the Vanilla Buttercream icing....Yum!! These are perfect for any celebration but lovely to have when you have nothing to celebrate too.....

We were sent a selection of Betty Crocker products free of charge to try...This is my honest review....All thoughts and opinions are our own...


  1. Lucky you!! If you are going to cheat then it has to be Betty Crockery mmmm mm #triedtested

  2. I love Betty Crocker they are my go to product when I cant be bothered baking from scratch

  3. I've never tried Betty Crocker. I usually alternate between baking from scratch or just buying ready made. They sound a million times better than the cartoon themed fairy cake mixes that the boys have occasionally dropped into the trolley which have never impressed me when we've made them #TriedTested

    1. Oh yes! They are so much better then the little fairy cakes.....

  4. I love baking, but I have never used one of these. I had loads of stuff in the kitchen, so it is usually easier just to use what I have. It does look really tasty though x

    1. They are so good....I'm not much of a baker so these are handy to have x

  5. oh my goodness i starting my baking journey and I have a challenge with my husband 'The Great Oliver's Bake Off' - we are competing to make the best easter cake and seeing these has just got me the edge I am sure of it!

    1. Oh yes! Go for it....They are fantastic and the icing is the best!
      Good luck! It sounds like fun x

  6. Yummy they look fab! Betty Crocker is great for giving you a helping hand in the kitchen isn't it.

    1. Oh yes! She will be in my kitchen from now on....hehehe

  7. Wow, that cake looks amazing, please can I have a slice?

  8. Whoo we love Betty Crocker cakes, yummy :)

  9. I adore Betty Crocker ! they are so easy to make when you are short of time and never compromise on taste x
