Time strapped birthday cakes often turn out the best.  This is Olivia’s birthday cake.  I just put 2 Betty Crocker packet cakes together and iced them both.  Stuck on a few freckles on the top and sides and made the little bunting flags from washi tape and 2 straws.

It tasted delicious and everyone was happy,  What a great outcome.  Just so you know this was not a sponsored post.

Do you ever cheat a bit and use a packet cake?
