Pillsbury Orangesicle and Key Lime! (Giveaway)



The winner of the Pillsbury Funfetti Giveaway who will be receiving an array of Funfetti cake mix and colorful frostings and a $50 gift card is commenter #14  Katie H. Congratulations Katie! Please email me with your mailing address.  

For everyone else, you have another chance to win below. Keep reading to see how!

Pillsbury has introduced new seasonal flavors just in time for warmer weather- Orangesicle and Key Lime! I was so excited to see these fresh and bright new flavors on the grocery store shelves because I am a citrus lover and so is my mom. She would put orange flavoring in everything if she could :-). Pillsbury kindly sent me a package consisting of Orangesicle and Key Lime cake mix, cookie mix and creamy frostings. I wanted to make a special cake for my mom, so I chose to bake the Orangesicle cake mix first. 

My mom is not a huge fan of frosting so I wanted to make a recipe that was simple and fuss-free, but bursting with orange flavor. And because chocolate and orange compliment each other so well, I added in a healthy handful of mini chips in the batter and on top. This cake smelled so good baking in the oven! When I tasted it, I was expecting it to taste like I was biting into a fresh orange, but it didn't. It tasted just like an Orangesicle, just like the box promised! It had a mellow orange and creamy vanilla taste and was so moist. Delicious. I still need to whip up a batch of key lime cupcakes and I'm so looking forward to it. 



Pillsbury is celebrating Spring with these new flavors in order to make your everyday occasions even more special. I started thinking about ways I could do the same with my family. I've been so busy in the kitchen baking and trying to wrap up this cookbook venture that once I'm done we're heading out on a picnic! I'm going to get Hayden to help me whip up a batch of Pillsbury cookie sandwiches (he's becoming a pro at working the KitchenAid!) then we're going to enjoy some fresh air and play at the park. I can already hear his giggles as he goes down the slide. The whole idea behind this celebration is to spend time together, relish in everyday moments and enjoy premium baked goodies. Thank you Pillsbury for helping us make lasting memories!

Yum, I LOVE Key Lime Pie so I want to try that one for sure- I haven't seen these at the grocery store yet, so hopefully they'll make their way to my store soon!

My mouth is watering at the thought of Key Lime icing! Yummy!!!!

Heather said...

I'd enjoy the dreamsicle most of all...I love those things! I even make homemade orange sherbert and vanilla ice cream and then layer them up for that awesome flavor.

Funny, kind of related story. My oldest was maybe 18 months-2 years and my MIL was watching him. He had oranges for a snack and asked for a glass of milk. When we got home she told us she thought that was such an odd thing to have with an orange...I just said that it probably tasted like a dreamsicle!

I understood my little guy :)

I made the key lime and pink lemonade cupcakes for Easter. They were huge hit and so delicious. The taste was a mild but still flavorful. The batter is thicker than normal but it made a light, fluffy, and tender cake with little to no crumbs when you bite into it. The frosting was a wonderful complement to the cupcake. I am trying to find more of the mix as the store where I bought it is out. Love these mixes and can't wait to try the orangesicle.
