Budget Friendly Cakes I’ve Made 🍰

img_4194It was around 10 years ago after my daughter’s 2nd birthday when I realized store bought cakes weren’t worth what we were paying for them.

So I decided I would attempt to make the next birthday cake. (You also have to keep in mind this was before Pinterest existed so I had no help there! πŸ˜‚)

Over the years some have gone to plan… while others, not so much. But it’s been a fun, interesting experience along the way. Here are some that I could find pictures for.

First Cake I ever made/created was for my daughters 3rd birthday Then later that year my son’s 1st birthday cake and smash cake

So the moral of the story is…

JUST Make the CaKe! It doesn’t have to be perfect. πŸ€ͺ As long as it tastes good kids will love it no matter what it looks like.πŸ’•
