Treat yourself with cake batter in the most delectable form ever: cake batter frosting. This easy, tasty recipe is perfect for cookies, cupcakes, cakes, or just eating with a spoon!
So I am back at it with another cake batter recipe. See, I figure I have a whole box of leftover cake mix and why not just put it to good use? Chances are, if you made the cake batter milkshake I made earlier, you have leftover cake mix too. I mean, what kind of person would I be if I left you with practically a whole box of left over cake mix? It's not like you can drink milkshakes all day. Well, maybe.....
So I am continuing on with a simple recipe for cake batter frosting. Think about all the delicious you can do with this stuff. You can put it on cupcakes or cakes (double the cake flavor!), swirl it in ice cream, eat it by the spoonful, dip pretzels in it, stuff it in a cookie.
The possibilities are freaking endless.
When you think about it. Cake batter frosting really kills two birds with one stone. Its cake + frosting all in one at once. It's genius. And an obvious hit with the kids.
Are you guys playing Pokemon Go? It seems like everyone and their mom is playing it and I am not even entirely sure what it is. I know you have to "catch them all" and it's something you do outside on your phone. Some kind of weird virtual reality thing? Honestly, I didn't even know Pokemon was still a thing. I haven't heard a thing about it since I was in, I don't know, 6th grade? I wish there was a Doctor Who Go or Harry Potter Go. I'd be all over that in a serious way. I might even give up blogging for the rest of the summer for that. Hashtag priotities. Hashtag worth it. Hashtag I promise to not do that whole "hashtag" thing again. Hashtag hashtag hashtag. Okay, now I'm done.
Now go make cake batter frosting and eat a spoonful for me!
Cake Batter Frosting

- Beat in the heavy cream one tablespoon at a time using only as much as needed to reach your desired consistency.
Is it okay to eat the raw flour in cake mix? I always thought it was bad for you
Amanda Powell says
Excellent question! Yes, there are risks to eating raw flour (something I was not aware of at the time of writing the recipe). The wheat for the flour goes from field to mill to stores (or in this case, to the manufacturer who adds the other ingredients to the cake mix) with very little processing which means whatever happened to the wheat in the field is still in the flour. You should heat up the flour first - you can do this in the microwave. Allow it to cool completely, then sift/refluff. Of course, it is up to you to decide to go through the extra effort or not. I do know some people still choose to risk it.
I’m going to put this on some macaroons!! I’m so darn excited.
Sooo glad I came across your blog! Such beautiful photography and recipes! Pinning like everything- lol 🙂
Thank you so, so much for stopping by Starla! You really made my day!
I just made a cake batter frosting a couple weeks ago for some cupcakes! It is so yummy. I think it would be tasty on some sugar cookies.

Yum! I want some cake batter frosting to go on top of some rainbow bagels! That'd be heaven.
Side note: I'm totally clueless about Pokemon Go. BUT I would totally LOVE Harry Potter Go!!!

Whhhhhaaaat?!? Girl, you are amazing with these cake batter recipes. I'm totally obsessed with this one and want it asap! Good thing my husband has a birthday coming up that I can make this for, otherwise I'd be sitting here eating it by myself lol.

YUMMMMM. Perfect use of leftover cake mix! I am already imagining slathering this all over a big, beautiful cupcake - this frosting is pretty much ideal for TONS of desserts! Love it 🙂
I'm having a hard time trying to think of something this wouldn't go well with. It might be the best kind of frosting around!
