Who doesn't like birthday cakes! If you go to a store and buy a slab cake they really don't taste that great and are pretty expensive for what you get. So then you decide that you want a specialty cake, have you looked at the prices of those, they are crazy expensive. So I get all my cake mixes when they are on sale for $1.00 (or I make them from scratch which really isn't as hard as you may think) and I get creative when decorating them. The results are pretty impressive, if I do say so myself, and the cost is very little. I also love to make mini cupcakes, you get a lot of them out of one cake mix and it is easy to make them look good.
