People assume if they walk into my house and smell something delicious that I must be baking. That wouldn’t be so far fetched I guess, since most of the time I am baking or cooking something sweet. The fragrant baking air finds it’s ways into our nostrils and surely makes us salivate.

Last week I received a box full of Airwick “Good To Be Home” collection, which is an exclusive line of candles sold at Walmart. The candles not only smell good, they come in a  glass jar with a beautiful mirrored cap. The branded labels easily peel off to fit into any home’s decor. Additionally, they are super reasonable in price, only $4.98 each. The good folks over at Airwick also included a scented oils, freshmatic, and a box of cake mix. They wanted to make sure my house was smelling great. 

I immediately put fire to the wick in the vanilla cupcake candle. A few hours later my Mom came over and the first thing she asked when she walked into the house was “Are you baking or did you make pancakes?” I giggled and said “No. Why?” She said “It sure smells like you did.” I showed her the Airwick candle, and I told her I had a box of vanilla cake mix if she wanted I could make her something with the mix. Her eyes showed a slight smile, telling me she liked the idea.  Then I said “Or I can make you pancake made with cake mix since you mentioned that’s what the candle reminded you of.” She nodded and said “Get to it then.” As I was making the pancakes she asked that I make them with a pile of whipped cream on top just like the cupcake pictured on the candle. I told her that wouldn’t be a problem, then she said “Where can I get my own candle?” At WALMART of course!
