Editors Review

Want a show stopping dessert for Thanksgiving without having to spend hours in the kitchen? This video is all about how to make and decorate a cake that looks like a store bought one. Chef is smart enough to use Betty Crocker's cake mix with loads of spices for cake. She frosts it with a ready frosting and thus there is no messy process. She also makes a cranberry raisin chutney for topping the cake and that's what steals the show.
