For all of you that know me and read my blog, I am from Upstate Utica, N.Y. We have some of the best bakeries in the world there, at least to me.
In our hurried society we live in, you can enjoy these in no time at all without running out of time to make specialty treats like this one. This recipe will come in handy for all us working folks and moms who just run out of time with making things for school functions, benefits, large parties and just because they're so good. Did I mention you use a cake mix? Oh yes and you can make all kinds of flavored cake mixes and also frost them to whatever theme is going on. Fast to be a quick fix and pretty darn good!
I have to say these are definitely pretty darn good and the kids loved them!
1 white (18 oz box size) or any chocolate cake mix if you want chocolate moons (I even made spice ones!)
Note: do not use a mix with pudding in it.
2/3 cup oil ( I used vegetable)
1 can white frosting
1 can chocolate frosting ( I prefer homemade)
optional: tint frosting orange with food coloring
Sprinkles if using
Preheat oven to 350. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a bowl mix until well blended.
Cool completely. Frost flat sides, half white half chocolate.
Note: tinted frosting is using 1 drop red food coloring 1 drop yellow.
