If you’d asked me in early June what we had planned for this summer, I would have told you “not much.” June itself was pretty uneventful but July and August turned into a whirlwind of activity. We spent a lot of time traveling. My kids went to visit my sister in Michigan for two and a half weeks while my husband and I stayed home – alone! It was an absolutely wonderful break. We had a chance to reconnect as a couple and my kids had a ball enjoying a Michigan summer with family. But when the kids returned, I wanted to do something a little special to welcome them back.
Duncan Hines new Perfect Size cake kits were the answer to my little welcome home celebration for the kids. The kits come with a 6 inch baking pan, cake mix, and frosting mix. All I needed to add was butter, water and an egg to make a mini cake perfect for a small family celebration.
The little cake was easy to whip up and I actually baked it in my toaster oven making it even easier. The cake pan is disposable and doesn’t need to be greased before baking.
The frosting was amazing! I was a little concerned there wasn’t going to be enough, but there was exactly the perfect amount to frost our mini cake.
I served the cake on a little cake stand and added my own sprinkles to dress it up a bit. I wasn’t sure we’d each get enough cake but we cut the cake into four slices and we each got a pretty decent sized piece of cake.
Duncan Hines Perfect Size cake kits come in 5 fun flavors and each kit includes the cake, a pan and frosting. These would be so fun for the little events in life that you want to celebrate, but don’t need a full sized cake.
