Cake Raffle Time

As sure as it is March Break, it also means Cake Raffle time at J’s school.  The last two years saw me slaving over intricate details and making beaches and bugs.  This year was the easiest cake possible.

I made a white cake from scratch.

Used some ready-made frosting.

Sprinkled some ground cookie crumbs for dirt and added the final touch of worms and frogs.

That was it!

Hopefully next year we will be back to funky and fun, but I was more than happy to take it easy this year.  It gained many tickets from J’s buddies in his class, but in the end I have no idea who went home with it.

    OMG, that looks delicious. I love gummy worms!!! A cake raffle is a great idea – I have donated a few sets of my cards to the boys’ school and I hate when I don’t know who they go to. At Christmas I sent some and then a month later Pete’s Beaver leader told me she won them – I was so happy 🙂

    Are you kidding me! This cake would be a HUGE hit in our house. I’m so using the idea. I can hardly wait. Very creative!!

    We used to have cake raffles when I was growing up. Glad to hear that they are still going.

    oh that looks good. I haven’t participated in any cake raffles this year (our school does 3 or 4 a year). I am hoping to get back into it next year.
