    Love it! Being from MN myself I actually know some older ladies (and a few older gents) that would get along well with Aunt Inga. Love your sense of humor and the tips! Would love to hear from Aunt Inga again.

    Aunt Inga is too funny!! Thanks for making me laugh. Aunt Inga can give Mrs. Doubtfire a run for her money. I actually went to the store to buy cake flour and was outraged by the price: $4.99 for a box of flour. I refused and found Aunt Inga because I KNEW there had to be a way to make it. My vanilla cupcakes turned out great. I’m about to make the strawberry frosting. The cupcakes are a surprise for one of my children’s golf buddies. He asked for them a month ago and I know he thinks I forgot. Thanks Aunt Inga!!!

    Love Aunt Inga! She reminds me of our three years when The Marine was on recruiting duty in northern Wisconsin, lutefisk, krumkake and lefse. We’re not in Kansas anymore!! Most not of been too bad of a tour, our bambino was born there! Great tip too about cake flour. I always forget and end up paying a ridiculous price. Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem anymore!

    Hysterical 🙂 and the accent is little muddled but it resembles an Irish accent most of the time. I think people are saying swedish because she mentions Oleg and Sven frequently lol . Regardless it’s very amusing!
