Cake Raffle Time

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.

Cake Raffle

Last year, we had the mud and worm cake, the year before we had the palm trees by the beach and the first year we had the bug cake (which I still hear about from the lady who’s child one that one).

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.

    Yes – how fun! I used to love cake raffles when I was a kid. I never won but had fun making the cakes for sure. 🙂

    that is awesome. I like the idea of the pre-made jello. So much easier. Our school holds 3 cake walks a year. We had one last week but I made simple pink iced cupcakes. I used to enjoy being creative and now I find myself too busy. I need to make time.

    Yum! Looks like it turned out really well. I think it would be fun to dive into a pool of blue jello. Hmmm. I’m sure the winner was one happy swimmy camper.
