Funfetti Takes Over TikTok

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

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?
