Before you dream up beautiful decoration ideas and tasty coconut treats, let me try some homemade creations first to save you from spending time and cash on a project that may not be as easy (or money-saving) as they say.
The great idea: Make an adorable kid-friendly, easy and fun Easter themed cake that will not only taste delicious, but impress the eye too.
Cost: From the ingredient list, it doesn't look like it will be a huge dent in the pocket.
Here’s a quick video recap of me attempting to make the cake:
Cost: Less than $10! Probably the most cost-efficient project yet. (It helped that I used a few ingredients from my mom's pantry). Even bought a Starbucks coffee to drink while making the cake with leftover bucks. Winning.
Simplicity: So simple I believe an 8-year-old could make it (with help cutting the cake, of course). On a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being most difficult, I would rate it a 2. A measly 2!
How did it turn out? Perfect! Not only does it look just like the Pinterest version, but it tasted great and definitely impressed my family, whom I gave it to (though they have to say they like it, right?).
