Funfetti Takes Over TikTok
Laura Lee - June 18, 2020


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

It seems as though TikTok is the new place to be (or at least for our generation), and offers everything you could ever imagine, and more! So beyond dance challenges and makeup tutorials, it’s also an epic platform to find creative and colorful treats that you easily make yourself no matter how much experience you have (or don’t) in the kitchen.  One of the most recent trends to be found on the social media app is Funfetti cake mix recipes, and it’s as festive as can be, even from the comfort of your own home. 

And although we’ve been seeing dalgona coffee videos and pancake cereal recipes all over social media, Funfetti cake mix is here to steal the spotlight, especially so on TikTok, so get ready. It’s completely magical, both in how it looks and in how it tastes and is a super fun way to mix things up in the kitchen (and make them incredibly shareable too).  TikTok users have been trying out all kinds of recipes using the playful mix, and we want in too. We’re sure you do too! So what’s cooking? 

Well, for starters, there’s Funfetti dip that includes the infamous cake mix itself, of course, and then some cool whip, cream cheese, and sprinkles to perfect this concoction. Added to our bucket list! But you’re surely going to need something to dip into this creamy and dreamy spread, so how about some Funfetti cookies? All you’ll need is the classic cake mix, eggs, and oil.  Funfetti Cinnamon Rolls are also going around TikTok, and although they are a little more time consuming than other recipes, rest assured that they are worth all the investment. Needless to say, Funfetti has taken over TikTok and has graced us all with some recipes that are not to be missed. What are you making?
