Great cake mix! It is too expensive here to buy cake mixes, so I appreciate having any I can get my hands on. I am all about the do-ahead and freezer meals. One thing I did notice with your recipes was that you refer to "zippy"s - as if we all know what that is. Don't worry, I figure it out after reading several recipes that it means ziploc-type bags. Perhaps using this language might be more understandable . . . but then, I may be the only one who hadn't heard them referred to as zippy.
