Funfetti Cake Waffles

12 years ago today my life drastically changed. There was a baby. And he was mine. And I had to, like, take care of him and stuff.

It was crazy, man. It still is crazy, if we’re being honest.

12 years of being a mama. It’s an amazing thing.

12 years with the absolute sweetest little boy I’ve ever met. I’m always telling people what a great kid he is, but I don’t think they fully get it. Really, you guys, GREATEST KID EVER.

I love him to pieces, is what I’m trying to say.

So, to make his birthday extra special, I served him up some Funfetti Cake Waffles for breakfast. With a big blob of ice cream and a healthy drizzle of chocolate syrup, natch.

His day is off to a pretty good start.

Happy Birthday, Elijah. Love you always, no matter what.

Funfetti Cake Waffles

Cake mix waffles are a fun twist on dessert, but serving them for a birthday breakfast makes the day that much more special!


1 box Funfetti Cake Mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs


Mix together the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs in a large bowl until well combined.
Drop 2 1/2 ice cream scoops of the cake batter into a preheated Belgian waffle iron and cook for three minutes. Use less cake batter if you're using a smaller waffle iron.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

    Of course, you can still make traditional albums and consider
    integrating your digital scrapbook designs into them.
    It is always essential to secure a digital piano that
    will match your own home. This might lead to apply gigs anywhere they can, and a piano keyboard
    that weighs no much more than ten kilos, carrying it from 1 place
    to an additional is not a a issue.

    Take photos of the rooms or spaces that you want to concentrate on; this
    will help visualize the items and colors in combination with the space.

    Quite a lot of superior digital piano bench models
    are on hand for less than one hundred dollars, these benches are ample for the majority user’s wants and
    will last for years to come. Just in case you require a replacement, there are actually numerous bench colors and also leg styles
    available to select the one that matches your preferences.
