Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers REVIEW – The Hidden Gem On Gratiot With The Best Burgers In Town

Here is a little bit of background on me and Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers. They opened up their first burger joint nearly a decade ago in Mount Clemens. My little family lived only a hop, skip, and a jump away when they had that location. I actually used to push my daughter over there in her stroller and cut up a Seeburger’s Cheeseburger for her to eat (she is 9 now and still a huge fan!). My family has been dining at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers since day one and we keep on coming back because you will not find a better cheeseburger slider around in a huge radius! This is our go-to destination for the ultimate “cheat day” meal. There is just something about Seeburger’s! They truly do work at slapping a smile upon your face and making your belly feel happiness and joy. So today I am sharing my Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers review on the blog. Keep reading to learn more about this treasured burger spot!

You might not have ever heard about Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers and I hate to break it to you but you have been missing out big time! These addictive little burgers are pure bliss to chow down on, and will have you keep coming back for more! I think of Seeburger’s as a bit of a hidden gem. It is tucked away on Gratiot and nestled next to a party store and only a couple of buildings away from White Castle, another slider destination. Bold move huh to have a slider shop in such close proximity to another slider spot, but it works! Todd Seeburger is the owner and he has his faithful following of slider connoisseurs. I am reaching out to you today in hopes of spreading the word about this burger joint because I believe it is important that you know about it if you love a good burger and a fantastic deal on them.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers REVIEW

 

Here is our spread of food at Seeburger's Cheeseburgers
Here is our spread of food

My dad and I stopped into Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers on Gratiot for lunch. When you step into this location you can feel a good vibe as soon as you walk through the door. This location has car and cruising memorabilia on display. Gratiot is a cruising destination of many during the warmer summer months in Michigan. Cruising has been happening on Gratiot for decades and my dad is one of the original cruisers from way back in the day.

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers FAMOUS Sliders

At Seeburger’s their claim to fame is definitely due to the large success of their cheeseburger sliders. These are some very satisfying little morsels of heaven! You can purchase single sliders for $1.65, or you can purchase a combo for $7.07, buy a half dozen for $7.99, or purchase an entire dozen for $14.99.

 

Here are some photos of their famous cheeseburger sliders. Enjoy!!

Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers is more than just sliders

This Give It A Whirl Girl blog is all about trying new things and giving them a whirl. Since I have tried their cheeseburger sliders a hundred dozen times, today I will be sharing my experience with the Big Clem Burger and the Phat Gratiot Burger. My dad and I stopped in for lunch and today I am sharing my experience of that satisfying and deeply filling lunch.

I am including the Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers menu down below so you can scope out all of their fantastic offerings.

Big Burgers at Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers

The Big Clem

The Big Clem burger features two hamburger patties with American cheese, lettuce, Thousand Island dressing, and then this juicy burger is topped off with an onion ring the size of a donut!

I enjoyed this Big Clem Burger big time, guys!! I have never in my life had a burger quite like this. That gigantic onion ring that topped off my burger really hit the spot! The thousand island dressing on this cheeseburger really gave off a Big Mac vibe, only better. I am not a patron of McDonald’s… like ever! This Big Clem Burger puts the Big Mac to shame. At Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers, you get fresh beef, never frozen on your burger. You really can tell the difference. The owner, Todd Seeburger, has a lot of pride about his burgers and he uses only the best ingredients to keep his customers and loyal following happy.

The Phat Gratiot Burger

The Phat Gratiot Burger at Seeburger’s is a double stacked hamburger with pepperjack cheese, BBQ sauce, bacon, and frizzy onions.

This right here is the burger that my dad tried out. My father was ooo’ing and ahh’ing the entire time he ate this burger and he really tried to take his time so he could savor each and every bite of it. This burger earned a spot on my to-do list. l have never had a burger with bbq sauce on it before but I think the combo of bbq sauce and pepper jack cheese might just be a match made in heaven.

Pickle chips and mozzarella cheese sticks are also a great choice.

A little Seeburger’s Cheeseburgers nostalgia!

I am including a few photos below to showcase just how much my family loves this place! My daughter, Chloe, is now 9 years old and she is a huge fan!

This was not our first time at this Grosse Pointe pizza place. We have been here several times before.

There are so many excellent choices here and I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them! Extreme Pizza is known to consistently serve up pizzas that do not disappoint!

Extreme Pizza is an excellent choice for your next “cheat day” meal! YOLO so you might as well just stuff your face with some Extreme Pizza… am I right??

Tasty Ice Cream REVIEW – Dig Into 4 Fun & Unique Limited Edition Ice Cream Pints From Tasty!

New product alert! And this new product is also a limited edition item! Today I am sharing my Tasty ice cream review with you. I just recently discovered that my local Kroger store carries these new ice cream pints from Tasty and they are available in four fun and very delightful flavors. Tasty ice cream pints feature some super-duper creamy ice cream with the addition of unique mix-ins. The flavor combinations of these Tasty ice cream limited edition flavors are not only creative but make for one memorable ice cream experience! Tasty ice cream succeeded in slapping a big fat smile onto my face with these sweet treats!

These Tasty ice creams are the perfect treat for your next indulgent “cheat day”. I often opt for the healthier, better-for-you ice creams like Enlightened and Halo Top but sometimes you just have to give into to that sweet tooth and have a bit of sugar. No sweat… just get back on track with your diet and lifestyle the next day. YOLO (you only live once) so why not just give in to the temptation and enjoy that pint of ice cream?!?!?!!! Remember my blog tagline is “Eat Healthy So You Can Have Dessert” so just keep that in mind ok?

The 4 Limited Edition Tasty Ice Cream Flavors

Vanilla Galaxy Twist

This flavor here is for the rainbow candy sprinkles enthusiast (me!!). The Vanilla Galaxy Twist is going to blast you off into euphoria while chowing down on this pint. The ice cream flavor also has silky blue frosting swirls with a vanilla ice cream base. In this out-of-this-world delicious ice cream pint, you are also going to enjoy some caramel stars, chocolate chunks, and cosmic crunch. Tasty really went all out with this fun flavor! I don’t think ice cream gets any better than this folks!

Peanut Butter S’mores Smash

With the Peanut Butter S’mores Smash flavor of Tasty ice cream this is where two flavors collide and marry into one hell of an awesome flavor! The ice cream itself has a peanut butter flavor and inside you are going to experience some marshmallowy goodness and miniature peanut butter cups. And to take this flavor to a whole other level you will also enjoy a sprinkling of graham cracker crunchies and a fudge swirl mixed throughout.

White Chocolate Raspberry Lava Cake

The White Chocolate Raspberry Lava Cake Tasty ice cream pint is like my dream flavor here! This unique flavor features a white chocolate ice cream combined with raspberry ribbons and swirls along with some get this… CHUNKS OF CAKE! Oh my goodness gracious! I kinda hate to say it but this ice cream pint is one that I would honestly hoard just for my own sweet self. I am head over heels in love with anything that is raspberry flavored and when you throw some cake into the mix? BLISS! Pure bliss!

Tasty Ice Cream Nutrition Facts

As you can see in the nutrition facts label below this is an indulgent treat. The nutrition facts vary by flavor. The one shown in the photo below is for the Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Crunch flavor. If you give in to your desires and lose control AND eat that whole pint you are going to set yourself back a whopping 710 calories. Might just have to run a marathon to burn that all off. Am I right?

One serving contains 25mg of sugar. If you eat the whole pint you will be consuming a massive amount of sugar, a total of 65mg. As mentioned earlier in this post, these ice cream pints are reserved for a cheat day treat. It is ok to have a sugary treat every now and then. I believe in eating with balance. What I do is eat healthy and clean most of the time and then allow myself to indulge in a not-so-good-for-you treat. I don’t want to deprive myself of the fun things in life (like ice cream).

Final thoughts on Tasty ice cream

Gotta say these four limited edition ice cream pints were thoroughly enjoyed by my little family of 3! I truly hope that my Tasty ice cream review inspires you to hunt these down and give them a whirl! I’m going to give some mad props to Tasty for offering up these creative ice cream flavors. I also really enjoyed the delicious creaminess and texture of the ice creams. I am looking forward to Tasty releasing some more ice cream pints. Pretty sure I will be a regular buyer of this brand.

It is so hard to resist eating the entire pint all by your lone self because they are just that good!

If you are a regular reader over here at Give It A Whirl Girl, you can probably tell by now that one of my major weaknesses is ice cream. I love to review it and I love to blog about it. And finally, I love to eat all of it! In the near future, I will be reviewing more ice creams since summer is fast approaching and I can’t think of a better sweet treat to eat than ice cream when it is warm out.

 

 


Question Time!

One drawback

For me, there was only one little drawback that came to mind while typing up this Daddy’s Doughnuts review. That is that there is no seating available inside this donut shop. I know that many donut shops are grab-and-go but this is the type of establishment that I actually wouldn’t mind hanging out in for a while with my family. I wouldn’t mind having them pour me a cup of coffee to go with my donuts. I am only pointing this out so that my readers are aware that you will have to take your donuts to-go.

Daddy's Doughnuts is already counting down the days until National Doughnut Day!

What’s next for me at Daddy’s Doughnuts

I am most certainly going to be stopping in again at this establishment for some more donuts and smiles! I have never in my life had a donut with bacon on it and I will be ordering a maple/bacon donut, for sure, next time I come in! The Key Lime Pie donut also sounds like a winner for me! I am also intrigued by their Strawberry Shortcake donut. This is the place to be if you are bored with your regular glazed donuts. Stop in at Daddy’s Doughnuts if you want to try out some adventurous, new donut flavors!

Love Unicorns = Rainbows

I actually just found out about this incredible place, Rocket Fizz, a few days ago through my sister. My sister took her kiddos here and shared some photos from her experience. I knew that right after seeing those photos of hers that I needed to come in and scope out this fun and unique place. Rocket Fizz is a soda pop & candy shop, as well a nostalgia store located in Shelby Township, MI. These are actually a chain of stores that are located throughout the United States. Spectacular surprises await you around every corner and I am sharing my first-time experience with you in this Rocket Fizz review. From floor-to-ceiling there are sweet confections and oddities everywhere your eyes look. It is like sensory overload in here and I mean that in the greatest way for the candy consumer.

And just a heads up! This is a very pic-heavy post! I feel as though the images here really speak for themselves. I am really and truly hoping that my Rocket Fizz review will inspire you to visit this candy shop!

My Rocket Fizz Review

Just what is Rocket Fizz?

Rocket Fizz just might be the place to head over to when you have a major hankering for sweets and you need to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours. This is the place to visit if you need to stock up on “Cheat Day” sweets and treats.

If you have ever been curious about what mustard-flavored or puke flavored pop tasted like then Rocket Fizz has you covered with their completely and totally INSANE flavors of pop for the thrillseeker!

Rocket Fizz is a store that has great pride in offering unique food and drink items to the public. They are a brand that strives for creativity and innovation. This store is the furthest thing from being boring. Rocket Fizz is the type of store that definitely evokes a lot of happiness, a ton of smiles, and plenty of hardy laughs. The mission of the Rocket Fizz chain of stores is that they want to offer something for everyone, for people of all ages and backgrounds. After my first visit here I can truthfully say that Rocket Fizz does succeed in doing that quite well! We had a blast here and we are all excited to come back soon for another visit.

Just living for those Cheat Day thrills!

I ended up taking home a big bag of candy that was chock full of several (and I do mean several) different flavors of taffy. We opted for the larger size bag that you could fill up with as much candy as you could stuff in there. It was $9 for the large bag and I believe it was $7 for the all-you-could-fill smaller bulk candy bag. There were so many different unique flavors of soda-pop at Rocket Fizz and I need to go back when I have a bigger chunk of money to spend here. I also am not a pop-drinker AT ALL but the unique flavors here are worthy of a try. My daughter ended up getting a black licorice pop and boy was it ever tasty! You can choose 4 flavors of soda-pop and build your own 4-pack at Rocket Fizz for $8.00. That is a great deal at $2 a pop! Otherwise, the soda pops sell for $2.29 a piece. The next time I visit this place I am going to get adventurous and try out the weird flavors of soda pop. I am thinking that it would be fun to purchase a couple of different 4-packs and do a video review with my 9-year-old daughter, Chloe Pearl! She is my little blogger sidekick and she has an adventurous palate when it comes to food and drink. Just like her momma, she will try pretty much anything once!

Modern Cone REVIEW – Our First Visit To This Modern-Day Ice-Cream Shop In St. Clair Shores

Modern Cone is a fairly new ice-cream shop to hit the city of St. Clair Shores, MI. This ice cream shop is formerly known as Ashby’s Ice Cream shop. I am so excited about the change that has come to this location. This past weekend we were actually looking for a new frozen-yogurt or ice cream shop to visit and we stumbled upon Modern Cone on Yelp. The photos that I saw on my Yelp app totally and completely sucked me in. So for Tried It Out Tuesday this week I am sharing my Modern Cone review with you. If you are in the Detroit area (or St. Clair Shores would be even better) you need to check out Modern Cone. Their extensive menu is super duper exciting for the ice cream enthusiast. You will find yourself coming back for more and more after your first visit! I am always looking for new and interesting foods to try out and Modern Cone was the most perfect content to share with my readers.

My Modern Cone Ice Cream Review

First Impressions

My first impression of this ice cream shop was the super duper friendly staff! There were two people working when I came in and they were both very friendly and both were helpful. It is always reassuring to go into a new establishment and be welcomed by some joyful staff members.

Modern Cone is a decently-sized little ice cream shop. There are several ice cream flavors to choose from, an exciting menu board, and also an adequate amount of seating for those who wish to enjoy their ice cream on the spot. Check out the menu board below.

Create Your Own Stacker

Modern Cone offers up one of these lovely items known as a Stacker. You can order a Stacker off the menu board or create your very own!

  1. The bottom of the Stacker gets 2 toppings & sauce
  2. Ice cream layer
  3. 2 toppings & sauce
  4. More ice cream!
  5. For the topping of your Stacker, you choose two toppings and a sauce

Easy peasy and endless possibilities! I look forward to trying more Stackers off their menu and then venturing into creating my own.

Regular size Stackers sell for $6.00 and the large size sells for $8.00. To me, this is a very reasonable price for a sundae that is not only delicious but memorable too!

Our Two Ice Cream Stackers and a Modern Cone

I ended up splurging on the Cereal Killer sundae, my hubby got a I Want S’more (s’mores flavor), and my daughter Chloe got a double-scoop ice cream cone with rainbow sherbet and cotton candy. It was really hard to narrow down my choice to just one because the Stackers that Modern Cone offers all sound enticing to me. I consider myself an ice cream enthusiast so I can’t wait to return to Modern Cone and give more of these creative icec ream concoctions a whirl!

Cereal Killer

I have never in my life had an ice cream sundae with cereal on it but now seems like a good time to start! My Cereal Killer Stacker included strawberry ice cream with a variety of different breakfast cereals (Fruity Pebbles, Trix, and Lucky Charms) and it was then topped with a white chocolate sauce. Talk about a unique ice cream experience! Yeah yeah yeah I know this sounds like diabetes that is ready to happen in a cup BUT I do not treat myself to confections like this often so all is good! I was long overdue for a Cheat Day treat and this Cereal Killer Stacker satisified my sweet tooth!

They also have “NACHOS”!

I was really intrigued by the section of the menu where it said NACHOS! This ice cream shop puts a delicious spin on nachos and they came up with dessert nachos. Yep… you heard that right! With the nachos, you get two flavors of ice cream, your choice of 3 different toppings, and two dessert sauces.

Other Items Available On The Menu

There is a great variety of items available on the menu here. Indulge in an Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich or Cookie Ala Mode! Few things in life beat the winning combination of a warm cookie paired with some scrumptious ice cream so I bet you a million bucks that I will be trying out both of these frozen treats!

What is next for me at Modern Cone

I already have my mind made up (I think!) for my next visit to Modern Cone. I need that Fruity Explosion! The Fruity Explosion comes with vanilla ice cream but I am leaning towards swapping that out for some Blue Moon or cotton-candy!

Final Thoughts

I am sharing this Modern Cone review today because I want to inspire you all to get off your butt and head on over here! This was my first ever visit here and I was absolutely blown away by the menu choices.

Ice cream shops like this are a dream come true for me because I am not into ordinary… give me extraordinary!

This place is anything but boring. When you go to an ice cream shop like this you are in for a real treat. The menu is so creative and it really has inspired me to want to go back for more! I want to give it all a big whirl! Lucky for us, we actually live within walking distance to Modern Cone. I am feeling like I hit the jackpot by discovering this unique and modern place!

MunchPak Coupon/Discount Code
MunchPak Coupon/Discount Code

Let me tell you why I love MunchPak

What I love about MunchPak is that it is a fabulous opportunity to try out new snack food products. In my small subscription box, I received six different snacks. You know me, always wanting to try new foods and giving things a whirl. I live for the thrill of this. My soon-to-be 9-year-old daughter Chloe is the same exact way. She came home from school and saw this MunchPak box and it brought a ton of excitement to her day. We took turns opening up the products and trying them out. It was a really great experience with my daughter and it really encourages her to eat with an open mind. Chloe even exclaimed, “these are the best barbeque chips I have ever had”. She had a ton of fun trying these snacks out with me.

MunchPak.comDifferent options available

MunchPak has different options available so you can customize your shipment. They offer three different sized boxes: 5+ snacks, 10+ snacks, and 20+ snacks. Snack boxes start at the low price of $9.95 and currently, all Paks are shipping free of charge. You can also choose your delivery frequency. They have options for delivery every two weeks or once a month.

MunchPak.com

Items that I received in my MunchPak

My snack box included six new-to-me international snack foods. There was a mix of sweet and savory snacks in my MunchPak. I have never seen these snacks ever in my life. So imagine my excitement and my surprised face when I opened up my box. The really neat thing about this snack box is that these snacks come from all over the globe. Each snack is labeled with the country that it originated from.

As you can see in the photos below there are some pretty unusual countries like Israel and Turkey. I do not ever think to try foods from these countries because their availability in the US is sparse. So this is the wonderful thing about the MunchPak. They bring the snacks to you!

Our favorite picks from our MunchPak

Since my daughter and I have been indulging in some not-so-healthy snacks lately we really loved the candies that satisfied our sweet tooth. My favorite candy that was included in my shipment were the Zazers Mixed Fruit Candies. They came from the UK and they were a lot like the Mentos that we have here in the US. They had a really fantastic fruity flavor.

The DeeBest Sour Super Dooperz Apple Flavor candies were also a big hit with my daughter and I. We love sour gummies so these sweet little treats were devoured quite quickly!

Chloe really loved those Tomahawk BBQ chips. They were our favorite savory snack that was in our MunchPak.

HealthPak from MunchPak

Looking for some snacks that are healthy and good for you? MunchPak also offers a subscription box called HealthPak. These boxes contain at least 10 different snacks and all snacks are made with all natural ingredients and are free of GMOs.

Final thoughts

This is a subscription box service that I can easily see myself being a regular with. I would love to receive a shipment of MunchPak once a month.

Fun & Unique Breakfast Cereal – Amazon Shopping Guide

Welcome to my Fun & Unique Breakfast Cereal shopping guide over here at Give It A Whirl Girl. Amazon is chock full of some very wild and crazy breakfast cereals that you just aren’t going to find on the shelf at your local Kroger grocery store. I did the work for you and am posting the best of the best! Some of these breakfast cereals are absolutely hilarious and would make an unforgettable Christmas gift.

I also included some other neato cereal-related items to this gift guide. We have some Funko pops, clothing, a card game, some Christmas ornaments, and more!

Poop Like A Champion – Highest Fiber Breakfast Cereal – 100% of daily fiber in 1.6 servings

Looking for a breakfast cereal and colon cleanser all-in-one? Poop Like A Champion delivers! One half-cup serving of this cereal has a whopping 16 grams of fiber! This is unheard of and totally intriguing to me! And a bonus? It is also gluten-free! One thing to note here though is that this cereal is not made to taste great. It is made with a purpose and that is to clean the gunk out of your guts and insides. Let’s face it… sometimes it needs to be done.

This breakfast cereal would also make for one tremendous gag gift!

Erma’s Frozen Custard REVIEW – St. Clair Shores Michigan – A Trio Of Frozen Custard Parfaits

Erma’s Frozen Custard is the place to be if you want some top quality frozen custard and some exciting, fun ways to top it. This place has so many wonderful flavor concoctions it is somewhat overwhelming to decide on just one! Give me two. NO! Give me three! The flavor options here are just mindblowing. This was my first time visiting with my little family of 3 and we each chose our own parfaits. I just had to go with Peanut Butter & Jelly. I really have a thing for PB&J and that is my jam right now. My husband went with the S’mores Parfait. I believe I heard him moaning over just how good it was. And last but not least my daughter, Chloe, went with a Candy Parfait. Keep reading my Erma’s Frozen Custard review to learn more about this delectable little ice-cream shop!

My Erma’s Frozen Custard Review

Hard work does pay off… in frozen treat form!

We had a yard sale for the past few days and this was a great place to go to reward ourselves for our hard work. Chloe had a blast with the yard-sale (it was her first) and she was so thrilled about earning some money. It was her idea to go out for ice-cream. She insisted that she wanted to purchase her own sundae with her own money. That kid had some sheer determination to spend money last night!

Always seeking something new to experience

It was my idea, of course, to try out something new. Erma’s Frozen Custard is so conveniently located that we could actually take a stroll and walk on over there. How have I been living in St Clair Shores for so long and never ever stopped at Erma’s. It saddens me to think about how much I have been missing out on all these years. I am definitely going to visit this place one more time before they close for the season. I already know what I’m going with too~ Raspberry Truffle Parfait!

Peanut Butter Jelly TIME!

I want to discuss a bit on my parfait that I ordered, the Peanut Butter & Jelly! Let’s start with the bottom here: first up is vanilla custard, a layer of peanut butter, chopped peanuts, more vanilla custard, a generous helping of strawberry jelly, more nuts, whipped cream and then topped off with a cherry. I gotta say that I enjoyed this immensely! Yes I said that word and I reserve it for rare occasions!

In the two photos below you can see just how many options Erma’s Frozen Custard offers. I highly suggest checking out Erma’s frozen custard menu so you aren’t standing around looking dumbfounded trying to figure out what the heck you are going to order!

Take a dip

What I love about this place is that they have some great flavors of dip that you can go with! I love that hard-shelled dip on my cone. They even offer a Confetti Cake dip! I am addicted to any and all things cake flavored and I know I will be going with that dip someday.

I absolutely love their creativity here and there is something for everyone.

Candy Coatings and Toppings at Erma’s Frozen Custard

Numerous options to choose from here! Erma’s Frozen Custard offers sundaes where you can choose one topping. These sundaes also come equipped with whipped cream and a cherry on top because no sundae is complete without that. Then they offer something called an Explosion! With the Explosion, this is where you can really let your creativity shine and you get your choice of not one, but two different toppings. You can see the Erma’s Frozen Custard menu in the photos below.

More than just parfaits and sundaes!

If you are craving something besides a parfait or sundae you are in luck because Erma’s offers a variety of other things you can go with. They offer milkshakes, slushies, floats & coolers. They offer specialty desserts as well such as: Custard Puff, Brownie Delight, Strawberry Shortcake, Banana Split, and a peculiar item known as an Upside-Down Banana Split (that is something I most definitely need to try!).

Nutrition

Erma’s Frozen Custard offers 100% Michigan dairy products and their frozen custard is gluten and soy-free. You can read up on this more HERE.

My one beef about this place, speaking honestly here

These parfaits come in at $6.30 a piece. For a family of 3 to go out for parfaits here you are going to have to fork over $18.90. I am not what I would consider a stingy person whatsoever but for the amount of ice-cream and toppings that they give you for $6.30 just is not enough for me. I truly feel that maybe these should cost a little less or possibly just make the serving size larger. I will visit this place again when I have the means to, but I really believe that the price is a tad too steep. We usually do not pay that much to go out for ice-cream. We can go to Menchie’s and do big build-your-own froyos with a ton of toppings and usually only be out $15 for the visit there.

Where can I get my Erma’s?

Great news Michiganders! There are multiple locations to find Erma’s Frozen Custard. There are currently locations in: St. Clair Shores, Shelby Township, and Warren, MI.

Check out the store locator for more details on where you can find your closest Erma’s!

The Most Scrumptious Gluten-Free Cotton Candy Cake & How I Created It

This morning I would love to share with you about my experience with the Wilton Easy Layers cake set and how I made my gluten-free cotton candy cake. I blogged about this cake pan set on a recent Friday Faves post and I ended up ordering myself one and I am so happy that I did. I ended up creating the best cake I have ever made in my life yesterday! I am truly proud of it and I was happy to serve it to my mother, who came over for a t-bone steak dinner. The cake that I made was the most perfect dessert to serve to her and she fell in love with it. And of course, my daughter, Chloe, was absolutely in love with this cake. She assisted me in making it and it is always a joy to work alongside her in the Give It A Whirl Girl Kitchen.

Here is how I made my gluten-free Cotton Candy Cake

Here is how I used Wilton Easy Layers Cake Pan Set

The Wilton Easy Layers contains 5 pans that are 6 inches in diameter. They are pretty shallow pans. They have a non-stick coating but I still sprayed mine with a bit of coconut oil just in case I had a problem with my cake sticking. The pans will fill up one standard size serving of cake batter. These cake pans will also all, conveniently, fit inside the oven at the same time due to their small size.

Most of the ingredients I used in the Cotton Candy Cake - Give It A Whirl Girl
Most of the ingredients I used

Pamela’s Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake Mix

The cake itself was made with a gluten-free mix by Pamela’s. I used Pamela’s Vanilla Cake Mix. I have used this mix once before for cupcakes and I was very satisfied with the taste and texture. What I also love about the gluten-free mix is that it is non-GMO, uses no artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup.


Lorann’s Cotton Candy flavor oil

I achieved the cotton candy flavoring using a bottle of Lorann’s Cotton Candy Flavoring Oil. This was my first time using a flavoring oil of this kind and I heard that a little bit can go a long way but I ended up having to use about half of the bottle to get the flavor I was going for. I really enjoyed the flavor of this, though it was not exactly like cotton candy. I will have to explore other flavor oils and extracts from this brand because I am just not a plain vanilla person.

How I created the frosting for this cotton candy cake

For the frosting, I decided to go with a homemade buttercream. I had a fridge full of different kinds of butter from Chef Shamy so I gave the Honey Butter Vanilla Bean a whirl. Chef Shamy serves up a high-quality butter with no weird ingredients… just pure butter. It is also gluten-free. This particular vanilla flavor produced the most glorious buttercream I have ever whipped up. I used Simple Truth Organic Powdered Sugar with the butter and a few splashes of almond milk. The flavor of this buttercream was out of this world. If I had to give myself a grade it would be an A+. It really was that great!

Coloring the cotton candy cake

Now let’s get on with the color. Yes, this time around I was naughty and used artificial colors… GASP! It’s true that I did. I’m not proud but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and YOLO! I used Betty Crocker’s Neon Gel Food Colors for the pink and the purple. Gel food coloring is some pretty potent and powerful stuff. They really do produce gorgeous coloring on your creations. I don’t know why but for the neon pack they do not include the color blue, so for that, I used a Kroger brand neon blue. I am so pleased with how the colors turned out!

A ton of candy to top it all off!

And for that gorgeous candy that is all over the cake? I created my own mix of sprinkles with several different brands. The sprinkles with the big bits are pieces of candy that were from Celebrations By Frey. My local Kroger store sells them but I can not locate them on Amazon. The bottle of sprinkles is titled MixLicious.

Final thoughts on this gluten-free cotton candy cake

I am super duper pleased as pie (or should I say “cake”) with how this cake turned out and I was proud to serve it to my family. It really did taste as good as it looks. I am not a professional baker so I am aware that the cake is a little sloppy but I am always working towards bettering myself as a chef and as a baker.

This cake was so incredibly fun to make with my daughter and I could do this every single day if I had the funds (and if I wanted to be on 600lb Life). I am going to definitely be working on more cakes in the future and I might even get brave and give fondant a try. I love the way fondant cakes look. They are edible art! The beautiful cakes that I see on Instagram and on food blogs are so inspiring.

Bubblegum Cake! This Is My Gluten-Free Let’s Get The Party Started Cake With Pamela’s Vanilla Cake Mix (REVIEW)

Baking is hard. Not just hard but difficult. I get a vision in my mind and I want to create it. I know exactly how I want it to look and exactly how I want it to taste. Does my wish for this charming and glamourous cake become a reality for? Kinda sorta in this case. It looks so very amateurish and you want to know why? I am an amateur. I am a newbie on the food scene. I am a food blogger but I never tout myself as being a professional in any sort of way. For me, this blog is about the whole entire learning process of cooking and baking and food exploration. I am completely self-taught and I am learning something new every single day on this journey. Today I baked a bubblegum cake. I had that vision in my mind. However, things did not go exactly as planned.

Let’s see here… my buttercream was way too thin and runny and it was just DROOLING off the sides of the cake. I had a brand new, nifty smoothing spatula that I thought would result in perfect icing… nope! I knew my buttercream was too thin and I didn’t have any powdered sugar left to stiffen and thicken up. Cries! So a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. I had to work with what I had on hand and make the most of an unfortunate situation.

Here is how I created this bubblegum cake!

Pamela’s Vanilla Cake Mix

Today I will sharing my experience and Pamela’s Vanilla Cake Mix review with you. Another key product that I used in this cake was Lorann’s bubblegum flavor. Keep reading to find out more about this bubblegum cake I created!

Bubblegum Gluten-Free Cake - Let's Get The Party Started
Bubblegum Gluten-Free Cake – Let’s Get The Party Started

 

Ingredients used for gluten-free cake
Ingredients used for gluten-free cake

For this cake, I used a cake mix. I am in love with Pamela’s Classic Vanilla Cake Mix. This was my second time using this mix and I am so pleased to say that this is a fabulous mix. The last time I used this mix I made a Gluten-Free Cotton Candy Cake. Click this LINK to learn more about that. It was scrumptious!


How I got the bubblegum flavor with Lorann’s Oils

This was my second time using Lorann’s Oils to flavor my cake. This time around I used the bubblegum flavor. This oil is potent stuff and a little bit goes a long way. My house sure smelled bubblegummy from baking this cake. What a wonderful scent! I have never experienced a scent like that in my home before. Just marvelous! I wish my house stunk like bubblegum all day every day!


How I colored the bubblegum cake

I used a rose and teal color to dye my cake. I am in love with the color teal and I was really impressed with how vibrant the color was and that is was actually teal and not just blue! The rose color also lent a stunning pink color to the cake. Yeah yeah… artificial colors. I really don’t know what’s come over me. I try to go natural as much as possible and I’ve been slipping up recently but I’m really just having so much fun!

Topping the bubblegum cake

If you are wondering where the candy is from I will fill you in. I made a pit stop over at Roger’s Bulk Candy & Ice-Cream specifically for the candy on this cake. I love that store. You can read more about my first time visiting by clicking this link right over HERE. If you ever visit please let them know that Give It A Whirl Girl sent you! I know I have already inspired at least one of my friends to check out that place. I got my gorgeous, pearlescent gumballs there. I knew what I needed and was able to grab exactly what I needed from the bins. I am also so very grateful that I grabbed a pink lollipop to put smack dab in the center of my cake. A 5-tier layer cake needs support and the lollipop helped to be a dowel of sorts to prevent it from slipping away on me. The sprinkles came from a couple places: Michael’s and Mile’s Cake and Candy Supply. I got a delightful jar of Wilton Diamond Medley from Michael’s (woohoo and thank goodness for those coupons). The little rainbow hearts were from Mile’s. They have a wide variety of sprinkles to choose from

Gumballs and candy sprinkles – so pretty!

Sprinkles and gumballs – eye candy candy!

Sugarfina was an extra splurge!

And to make it a little more extra special I also topped it with Sugarfina Fruity Loops. They came from the Sugarfina Cereal Collection that I treated myself too. They are to die for yummy yummy yummy!

Having fun is what matters most! 

You know what? Even though my cake looks like it was made by an inept and unskilled baker I am really truly proud of it. I wish I could send a virtual slice of this cake through your screen because the taste would blow your mind. I am calling this cake, Let’s Get The Party Started”. There is no party happening here… not a party in sight. But you know what I want to celebrate today? Life! I have been feeling incredible the past two months since I started this food blog. I feel so revived and renewed. I feel like a whole new better ME. That is enough reason for me to bake a cake and celebrate! I’m also going to give myself an A for effort because I really did work my booty off on this creation!
