I'd have baked a cake. Baked a cake...OK I don't know any more of that song!
I love the movie Father of the Bride. Who doesn't right? But I love the part when they are discussing the costs of the daughters wedding cake. Steve Martin's eyes pop and jaw drops, and he says " a cake is made out of flour and eggs. My first car didn't cost that much!"
When I look at my stockpile, one thing that isn't lacking is cake mixes and frosting. I have a lot. Which cost me mere pennies. And yet, my need for my kids to have "perfect" cakes on their birthdays kept me going back to a variety of bakeries.
So while I am not even close to being a cake decorator, I have tried my hand at making a few different cakes & cupcakes.
Whenever I am upset with how it turns out, my husband likes to remind me that, "all they are going to do is eat it".
Cakes can be a big budget buster when it comes to birthdays, so I recommend you trying out your hand at making your own!
