Take a look at this cake! Not only is it made from scratch, but so is the frosting! Homemade cake always blows a boxed version out of the water! Both recipes can be found at Pops and Podge. Make sure to check out their Etsy store as well!
I love this cake for so many reasons! The number one reason is that it is inexpensive to make. Most of the ingredients like sugar, flour, eggs, baking powder, etc. you already have in your pantry. The peppermint sticks and star embellishments can be found at the dollar store! If you cannot find the peppermint sticks, I have seen them at Cracker Barrel if you have one around. They are not a dollar though 🙁
There is a full tutorial that shows each step of the process. What are you waiting for? Go check it out!!!
