Birthday on a budget
Since I had the oven running and "birthday cake" was on my list of cooking for Sunday, I went ahead and baked off a Red Velvet cake mix into a simple sheet cake. In the morning, I will frost it with some leftover, cream cheese frosting, and top with the non pareil sprinkles pictured. Birthday kid asked for red velvet and as luck would have it, I actually had a mix on hand in my baking cupboard. I recall that I paid very little for it, having applied a $1 off coupon towards it.
