Confession: Katy Perry gave me a box of cake mix.
Another confession: That's not true at all.
One more confession: It's sort of true. The radio station Carson works at got a bag of Katy Perry promotional stuff, like pink glittery beach balls and strawberry cake mix. Get it? Pink stuff. She's girly. (I don't know.) And one day I was at the station and I took it, because it was just sitting there, and cake mix shouldn't sit at radio stations. So you see? Katy Perry gave me a box of cake mix.
This was a loooooooong time ago, and the cake mix just sat in my pantry. Because what does one do with strawberry cake mix? And then I saw these cookies. Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies?! WTF?! Yes. Yes, they needed to be made. Made them, I did (said Yoda). And you know what made them outstanding? Strawberry cake mix. Thanks Katy Perry, you're a firework.
