Cake batter is such a great flavor. I love cake and it’s totally fun when that flavor makes an appearance in non-cake items. Our favorite is cake batter ice cream. We have a shop here in town that’s open for a few hours a day during tourist season. After a morning of garden work and chores we like to treat ourselves to a little scoop of ice cream once in a while; cake batter gets chosen more times than not.
This cake batter fudge is just as fun as it sounds, and it’s super easy; no candy thermometer needed! You’ll love all the sprinkles and how festive it looks. This is a great little treat to make and take to friends for their birthday because it’s so easy and doesn’t make an enormous batch.

Hope you have a great day! I have an awful head cold (and so does the baby and the three-year-old) and 3 bushels of corn to put in the freezer. September isn’t the best month to be sick. So much to do! Wish me luck…
