Instant Pot Cakes – there are so many options and so many questions! First, YES – you can pressure cook a cake. Weird, nah. I know, cakes just aren’t the first thing I think about when using my Instant Pot. But guess what? Instant Pot cakes are all the rage. These cakes are delicious and using the IP is such a great alternative to baking a cake in an oven.
Ultimate Guide to Instant Pot Cakes
There are so many questions when it comes to making a make in the Instant Pot and we are here to help. We have created the ULTIMATE GUIDE to making cakes in the Instant Pot! In this guide, we are including everything you would want to know about this new way to bake your cake. We will be talking about the Instant Pot cake function, and what setting to use if your IP doesn’t have this function. We will talk about what pans to use in electric pressure cookers. Also, we have a HUGE collection of Instant Pot Cake Recipes, everything from Instant Pot birthday cakes, to lava cakes, cheesecakes to box cake mix. I told you we are covering all the things!
Enough chit-chat, let’s put our game face on and get ready to IP a cake.
How to Use the Instant Pot Cake Function
Yes, there are several IP models offer a cake function! Let’s talk about how the Instant Pot cake function works and what cake setting to use.
The type of Instant Pot cake you are making will determine usage. Here is a general guide when making cake in the IP:
Less (low) – Lighter moist cakes
Normal (medium) – Denser moist cakes
More (high) – New York style cheesecakes
What if your Instant Pot doesn’t have a “cake” function? No worries, you can still make a cake in the IP – but you most likely only want to make either cheesecakes or other dense cakes rather than a moist cake.
Instant Pot Cake Pans – What Pans Can I Use in an Electric Pressure Cooker?

Laundry memes – because moms know the pain of laundry and if you don’t laugh – you will cry.
Are you one of those who knows how to juggle laundry? Laundry is something I loathe. I continually joke about Mount Washmore – which is the growing pile of clothes that just won’t stop escalating in height.
See here is the deal. I have learned that washing clothes really isn’t all that bad, it’s just folding and putting them up that I suck at. I have tried teaching the children. I have tried coming up with creative laundry solutions – nope, not happening. With 4 kids, it’s a never-ending cycle of hell.
Like all things hellish, there are 2 things I do to get thru them. I make jokes and I just do it. So laundry hating moms, this post is for you.
Funny Laundry Memes
Here are 25+ of the best laundry memes for 2018. If you hate laundry, you will LOVE these laundry memes! Share and enjoy these graphics – and make sure to pin this post!
Confession. I have gone to Target way too many times to admit to buy new clothes in order to not have to think about doing laundry. This especially works well with clearance kids clothing, Just saying.
Throwing laundry away, maybe not that – but I will admit that instead of folding clean laundry – if it won’t fit my kids for too much longer, it TOTALLY goes in the donation pile. And sorry Good Will, I will give you clean clothes, but they will NOT BE FOLDED.
Biggest parenting peeve, washing clothes to find NEW TAGS ON THE CLOTHES because in teen needed to clean room and threw ALL THE CLOTHES into the dirty clothes pile. UGH.
After seeing this, I totally hum the tune to NEVERENDING STORY when I do the laundry.
Make sure you read our post on how to remove mildew smell from laundry! We are TOTALLY AWESOME at making laundry smell like mildew in our house!
My answer for this is Moscato. And if the laundry pile is too big, chase it with a shot of vodka.
If only this worked.
Best gift idea EVER! I have 4 kids, so not sure if I should just create a massive jar and separate into 4 buckets or what – but LOVE THIS laundry gift idea!
NO MORE TOWELS, PLEASE!
Yep, all the time – and then it falls off the bed, the dog lays on it and the never-ending cycle of laundry repeats itself.
True story. No motivation to do laundry, ever – especially after 3 hours.
I just don’t understand people who can do this.
We have named our laundry pile Mount Washmore. It grows daily.
Like dust bunnies, laundry totally breeds in this house.
I always put off doing laundry. No shame in my game.
This funny laundry meme made me chuckle because its so true!
A fun weekend DOES NOT include laundry, ever.
Who else has thought about throwing the laundry in the fireplace? ME!!!!
The chair of clothes. I mean, what else does the chair do? I mean, people will still sit in it – even with all of the clothes. This also applies to my dresser.
That’s right Buzz Lightyear…. LAUNDRY… LAUNDRY EVERYWHERE…
I know I am not alone on this!
Laundry is never fun and games!
We would all be RICH if our bank accounts filled up as fast as our laundry baskets!
I love my husband, but laundry is not one of his skills either.
This feels 100% accurate.
I can wash all day, it’s just folding clothes – nope!
That’s right dryer!
It sure the hell does. It doesn’t make the laundry do itself, unfortunately – but it does help!
Let’s not even get started with talking about bleach.
Since we all can agree that laundry sucks, I hope that these funny Laundry Memes gave you a chuckle! Don’t forget to share and pin this post!

Best Quotes from Waitress

It’s comforting how somethings never change.
Dreams come and they go, but hold them and keep them and know that you need them.
We’re all just looking for a little less crazy, and sometimes it’s a hard left turn down a road you’d never thought you’d see.
In the blink of an eye, there’s a new life in front of my face, and I know in due time everything will find it’s right place.
Chance won’t come every single day, so don’t throw it away.

Disclosure: Post sponsored by NutriBullet but all opinions are my own. Does your 2018 include a resolution to get healthy? After our house flooded and we started living in a hotel, we decided to not worry about New Year’s resolutions. With a kitchenette and 6 mouths to feed, we have to eat the majority of our meals out. It’s hard to eat healthily, but we have found a hack that helps us make healthy choices while living in a hotel – here it is..
NutriBullet Balance Tech Review
Our friends at NutriBullet asked if we would be interested in trying out their new NutriBullet Balance just before the new year. It looked like a cool kitchen tech device and perfect for making smoothies. We were excited to try it out. We received it the day of our house flooding. When we moved into the hotel, the NutriBullet Balance came with us and let me just say, it’s been a God-send!
What is a NutriBullet?
Before I go in further, are you familiar with the NutriBullet? I had heard of the device but hadn’t used one. I had a blender, that’s all I needed for a smoothie, right? Here is the deal. Our blender is big and clunky. We constantly lose all of the parts and struggle to find a place to put it in our cabinets. The NutriBullet offers a minimal, compact design. Clean up is hassle-free and it has an amazing nutrient extraction power. The design of the NutriBullet allows you to even drink from the cup that you blend with. I mentioned how simple clean-up was right? Have you tried cleaning a standard blender? It’s a pain. The Nutribullet cups fit on the top-rack of the dishwasher (that’s right! the cup is dishwasher safe) and the blade cleans easily with soap and water.
NutriBullet vs NutriBullet Balance
NutriBullet vs NutriBullet Balance
Now that we know what a NutriBullet is, let’s talk about the NutriBullet Balance. So what is the difference between the NutriBullet and the NutriBullet Balance? The NutriBullet Balance takes the NutriBullet to a whole new level. The NutriBullet Balance syncs with the Balance App via Bluetooth to send nutritional information to your smart device. Why would you want a Bluetooth connected NutriBullet? Check this out. The NutriBullet Balance has the ability to tell you the nutrition value of your smoothie. It works via the NutriBullet Balance app and lets you create recipes and as you add the ingredients via the app and the blender, the ingredients are weighed with the Nutribullet and the app informs you of the nutrition value.
I don’t know about your family, but we make a lot of smoothies in our house. I have to admit, I never really thought about the nutrients in the smoothies that we were making. That has since changed now that we know how easy it is to find out what the nutrition value is of what you are putting in your smoothie!
Let’s Make a Smoothie
Let’s walk thru step-by-step of making a smoothie and finding out the nutrition value of your smoothie by using the NutriBullet Balance and NutriBullet Balance app. Every night, our kids like to have a night snack. Living in a hotel room – again, trying to make GOOD healthy choices, we have started making smoothies as their night time snack. Here is my 7-year-old Izaiah, helping me unbox and make a smoothie.
Since I have a recipe that I’ve created myself, I am going to input this information in the app to calculate the nutrition info and save it for later use. My recipe will also be available for other app users to see so that they can create it on their own! If you are looking for a new smoothie idea, check the app! There are numerous smoothie recipes to choose from. Bonus – did I mention that the NutriBullet Balance makes more than smoothies? Check out the soups and dessert recipes in the app as well! Here is how you will use the app when creating your own recipe:
- First, download the NutriBullet Balance app. Don’t worry, it’s free and available for both Android and iPhone!
- Next, let’s connect our NutriBullet Balance to Bluetooth.
- Now that we are connected, let’s make a smoothie!
- Open your app and choose “Create a Recipe” and click “Start”
- Set your NutriBullet cup empty, in the blender. No blade, the cup should you be standing up just like a cup!
- Click “Add ingredient” and select what you are putting in your smoothies (ex. bananas, strawberries, etc.)
- Next, add the actual ingredient to the cup. The NutriBullet Balance will measure how much you are putting into the cup and tell you the nutrition value.
- Continue with each ingredient.
- Click Save!
Your smoothie recipe with nutritional information is now saved on your app for easy access anytime you want to make that smoothie! Remember, you can use the NutriBullet Balance for more than smoothies! I’m looking forward to trying out a few soups. It’s cold here in Texas, perfect soup weather and we are so sick of eating out.
The NutriBullet Balance offers a great way to make a perfect smoothie. The product is very well made, super easy to use and clean. Living in a hotel isn’t easy, but it’s great having a compact device that we can utilize to help us make healthy, homemade choices. Here is what the kid thinks:
