Does anyone make cakes from scratch anymore? I mean seriously. Who has the time unless you’re a baker by choice. I have to admit 2 things. I hate baking – now I don’t mean muffins, bars or granola. NOT that. Cakes in particular which then leads me to revelation number 2 about me… I hate cake. I don’t know what it is but if I never saw another one the rest of my life I wouldn’t be sad. Some times, on rare occasions, cupcakes are fine but they honestly leave me despondent. I don’t know… maybe there is something wrong with me. And apparently this cake-hating is genetic or something. My kids are the same. They’ve always asked for cookie cakes or ice cream cakes to celebrate their birthdays. Even my husband…. it’s a no-go! But today is my dad’s 79th and he LOVES cake. So I suck it up & make one. Well, a box one but he doesn’t know.
So I instal-story a lot. I asked my watchers if they would be interested in my hack for the boring box cake and within 1 hour I had received over 100 DM’s letting me know they were interested so here it is!
