I love to bake but I do not always have the time to do so from scratch. Semi-Homemade recipes help busy moms create beautiful cakes in the fraction of the time. Please share some of your favorite Semi-Homemade recipes in the comment section.

Gently fold in raisins & shredded carrots into cake, mix. Follow baking, instruction on box.
Cream Cheese Icing
12 oz of softened cream cheese
