The holidays truly get me in the mood for baking! At the same time, so much is happening during this time of year – lots of gatherings and events to attend, including some hosting at my place. As much as I love to bake from scratch, it’s realistically impossible at times and I need to opt for other options. The last thing I also wanna do is go to a grocery store!
A quick and easy cake solution (aside from buying a cake): Don’t under estimate the power of cake-mix. In fact, I find them to be very tasty!! This is a good old classic cake that is almost always a crowd pleaser. It requires barely any instructions and minimal clean-up. Tip: I sometimes mix-in frozen fruit or top it with fresh strawberries for a more custom taste and look. My favorite cake mixes are strawberry and moist french vanilla. My go-to frosting is cream cheese whipped frosting. Other things I add on occasionally are – food colors, baking chips, and sparkle gel. Not only will I have a fresh last minute baked cake but my house will also smell like cake for the guests as they walk in ( thinking I made one from scratch 😉 ). This is my easy cake fix that works all the time!
As for getting the ingredients without having to go to the store: a great option for me has been Walmart+. It’s a subscription that has so many benefits, including unlimited free delivery on fresh groceries and more ($35 order min. restrictions apply.) Another benefit is that I can find everyday low prices I love. Walmart+ has so many fresh high quality groceries and most importantly all my needs for last minute holiday baking! With unlimited free delivery, Walmart+ can make planning and prepping easier so that I can focus on enjoying quality time with friends and family. This has been a time saver for me!
