Birthday Cake!- Frugal Savings

I am going to a birthday party today for two of my friends, their bday's fall 4 days apart so we're having a party today for the both of them. Anywho, cakes at Walmart were 20 dollars for a basic one and 30 or more for the really pretty ones. That seriously rubbed me the wrong way, who the heck

    Default Birthday Cake!


    I am going to a birthday party today for two of my friends, their bday's fall 4 days apart so we're having a party today for the both of them. Anywho, cakes at Walmart were 20 dollars for a basic one and 30 or more for the really pretty ones. That seriously rubbed me the wrong way, who the heck wants to pay 20 dollars for a stinkin cake that you're just going to cut into and eat anyway? They're turning 29 and 30, I highly doubt if they care if it has flowers or not on it. lol So, I thought "HEY everyone loves my jello cake, why don't I just make em one of those?"

    I have red sprinkles I bought out of a clearance tub at Kroger for 40 cents, I have raspberry Jello I got out of the same bin for 80 cents, white cake mix 1 dollar, white frosting 1 dollar, tub of cool whip (store brand) 1 dollar. So for less than 5 bucks and I have a perfectly decent cake. Hopefully they'll appreciate me making one since I made it from the heart

    Much better than the Walmart cakes! I've had some and they suck! Cake mix done at home or from scratch would be much better!

    Your cake sounds soooo yummy. I am sure they will appreciate the cake itself, as well as the thought and effort put into it. I personally do not like those cakes from Walmart. They seem to do the job when you are on short notice, but somehow, the feeling just isn't there. Suppose to be a celebration anyway right? What better way than something personal from you.
