A year or so ago my wife bought a cooking gadget called "Emeril's Cake and Pie Maker" It opens up like a waffle maker and has 4 molds in it for making cup cakes, quiches, or tiny pies. My wife made the quiches and pies and they came out good. Lately I've been using it to make cup cakes. I'm not a baker by any means so this is right up my alley. All you do is mix up one of the boxed cake mixes they sell and then cook up a bunch of cup cakes in Emeril's contraption. One cake mix makes between 18 and 24 little cakes. I get a bunch of small freezer bags and put 4 cakes in each. I freeze them and take them out a bag at a time as we want them. I top them with whipped cream or ice cream. Sure beats spending 8 or 9 bucks on a cake that goes stale before we can finish it.

Yes I know what you mean, that's why I freeze them in bags of only 4. Normally I'm not very big on cookies, pies, cakes and such but for some reason these seem to hit the spot with me. I made 3 batches this time. Duncan Hines Devils Food, Duncan Hines Classic White, and Pillsbury White. They all seemed to come out pretty good. The DH Classic White didn't seem to get as big as I expected, almost looked like white hockey pucks. That box called for just egg whites and I may not have put in enough. I had to stop production and go on line to learn how to separate an egg. Took me twice as many eggs to learn. They seemed to taste OK. Every now and then these mixes go on sale for a dollar a box and that's when I buy them.
