Snow Day Bake Day

Oh MN, it’s March and the snow just keeps coming!  Seriously Spring, where are you???

So, everyone at work was pretty much banking on a snow day Tuesday because we were expecting 6-10″ of snow.  And of course, I promised goodies if we had a snow day!

After a good 6 mile run, I made Cake with Lemon/Blueberry filling with Cool Whip Cream Cheese frosting and Cake Batter Chex Mix.

Cool Whip has decided to create the best invention EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Cool Whip Frosting!  My favorite is probably the Chocolate, it tastes like fluffy mousse pie filling!!  I eat it often out of the tub, usually with animal crackers.
