It is time once again for the Annual school Cake Raffle. It was actually held yesterday, but I didn’t get a chance to blog about it. This year was by far the easiest one yet. I saw it in a magazine, showed it to J and that was what he wanted.
Normally, the cake raffle is held on the Friday before March Break, which is a significant time in the year for me meaning that we are almost done. Having it almost a month earlier was a little trying as now I wish we were on March Break.
To show you how easy this was to make, I can tell you how in just a few brief steps. I cheated this year and used a cake mix and store bought icing. I baked it in two circular pans, frosted between the layers and then cut out the swimming pool. Then I iced the rest. Instead of making the jello in the cake like I did two years ago, I cheated again and bought premade jello (this was J’s idea actually) and then just mixed it up and scooped it into the hole I made for the pool. I then decorated the cake with candies that J asked for. All in all it took me very little time.
You cold make this for a birthday party or really, just for fun. J was disappointed he didn’t come home with a cake again yesterday, but I keep telling him we can always make another one.
