Slightly Sneaky Bakers

Are you the type who makes desserts from a mix and then hides the box in the trash and tells everyone you made it from scratch?  No judgement here!  As long as there are tasty treats I won’t complain as to how they were made.  To help you with your sneak-ery, we have some scrumptious new cake and scone mixes to thrill all your family  and friends.
