While shopping at Target this last weekend I decided to take a gamble and give a boxed cake another try. I have been making cakes and cupcakes from scratch for a few years now and to my surprise this cake was a hit.
I bought this mainly so that my daughter had something fun to do while my son napped that day and she had a blast helping me make it and decorate it with sprinkles. But not only did my daughter have fun making this, it was actually a decent tasting cake to my surprise. So I definitely wanted to share for those Mommies who are looking for something fun for Valentine's to do with their kids.
To decorate the cake I took two heart shaped cookie cutters and set them on the cake for my daughter to add the sprinkles onto and I loved the way it turned out! I have seen others on Pinterest who did something similar but with their child's age they were turning and I thought it would be fun to make with hearts.
This was a very simple recipe to make and even easier to decorate and best of all my daughter LOVED it and was fully entertained during a quiet nap time.
Thanks for stopping by!
