The other day I received this great package in the mail from Dawn, and they wanted me to make cupcakes! Besides loving cupcakes, the tools they sent were just great. Not only did I get the tools I would need to make some pretty sweet looking and tasting cupcakes, but some dish soap to clean up afterwards.
I may have mentioned this in the past (okay – I know I have), but I’m a messy cook. The only thing that will look worse than the counter when I’m done is the dish pile I create. So having some Dawn Ultra on hand to clean up with was a nice tool for the aftermath that is my baking. Just add water and a sponge and I was good to go!
Since we’re talking about Dawn, they sent over this great recipe for Blue Velvet Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting. Although they don’t quite look bright blue once they’re baked, as you can see by the other images below the batter is bright Dawn blue.
Dawn has been known for years to be a great tool for fighting grease and oil. We’ve all seen it being used to help save animals from oil spills, and there are a lot of other great uses for it too. Besides washing your dishes, you can use it as part of a cleaner solution, homemade weed killer and more. It’s a magical product and one that we’ve come to rely on for years in our house.
But after I made my cupcakes today, I faced none of the usual enemies when it came to washing dishes. Baked on bits from my sloppy cupcake paper filing slid off easily, the spatula, bowl, mixer bowl and even paddle wiped clean quickly and there wasn’t a trace of color or grease on any of my tools! That’s all due to Dawn grease fighting power combined with their new Ultra dish soap’s 2 times more active suds. That means you’re using less soap to get the job done. Less soap of course means you’ll be buying it less and saving money, but it also means less time on getting more soap to keep cleaning. All of the dishes came out clean and in no time. I can’t wait to try Dawn Ultra in my heavy baking season – Grease Be Gone!
And we all know what spending less time in the kitchen doing dishes means right? Other than less back aches and sore feet? More time to do what you really enjoy! It might be reading a book, playing on Facebook, or heading outside to watch the clouds with your little one. It’s summer, and the perfect time to spend less time inside and more doing what you love – but grab a cupcake on the way!
So are you read to get baking and make some blue cupcakes of your own? They’re great for any parties coming up, or maybe a 4th of July party! Dawn is giving one of my readers a prize pack so you can get baking, and clean up quick and easily as you go! Spend more time with your family this summer and less doing those dishes!

I use Dawn in some of the most unconventional ways. I use to for flea baths on my dogs and cats as well as shampoo to help remove temporary hair dye out of hair. It is such a versatile product.
When we first moved into our apartment that has no dishwasher, we had to depend to on Dawn to get our dishes clean and effectively remove grease.We use Dawn because we can depend on it to be strong,economical, and we always have clean dishes!
I like Dawn because it is so effective at cutting through grease, yet it is gentle.

My great grandma and my mother used Dawn so naturally I now do to. I use it for more than dishes. I wash lawn furniture with it, siding of my home with it, animal cages with it and more.
My favorite thing about Dawn is that it’s so tough on dirty dishes. My experience with Dawn has been fabulous. I love how I can have a dish that has stuck on grease or food on it and then let it soak with hot water and Dawn. An hour or so later, go back and the food and or grease slides right off. I love it. I don’t have to scrub that much.
