I have a handy book I got years ago from a friend that helps with this cake baking experience. It's the cake doctor which gives you easy tips and tricks for turning any store bought cake mix into a impressive cake easily! This is a great tool to have in your cook book stash.
You can do this and you will be very glad you did! I'll never forget what a big deal everyone made over the cakes I made for my babies first birthdays all the while the fancy bakery cakes went with little notice.
It's the loving care that goes into that homemade cake that touches every one's heart and becomes a cherished memory for both your baby and you!
