Why buy a birthday cake?

When you have four children and they consider cake a extra food group, buying large birthday cakes gets expensive! So I quit!

Besides, they love the making and tasting too much to not be wanting to make their own! And this is so simple and easy that even I can do it!

For the cake:
Buy four boxes of cake mix. If you are going for a Triple or more Chocolate Cake, try to get at least three or four different flavors. Make sure you are buying them from the same company!
My children love German Chocolate Cake and Brownies, but aren't exactly fans of bitter Chocolate.
Make sure to buy the ingredients needed for the cake mixes (usually oil and eggs) and follow the instructions on how to prepare it.
Add 1 large box of pudding mix to the mix. It will make it so much more moist and yummy! I would go with chocolate flavor for a Chocolate Cake, but it's your choice.
If you want to make a more girly cake, you can mix different white mixes with maybe a strawberry (you could make it a marble cake) or one of those with the sprinkles in it! I have seen white Chocolate mixes too!
Bake the cake in two different baking sheets to achieve two layers. You can also split it further and make it multi-layer.

For the filling:
You have the option of adding nuts, sprinkles and or the tiny chocolate pieces used for cookies to the mix before baking it!
If you want to fill it, you can use sliced bananas, strawberries, cherries or even blueberries. Or just a thick layer of icing in between.

When you have everything together, you take your first layer of cake and lay it out either on a baking sheet or large platter. Cover it with the filling of your choice and add the second layer. After you are done layering your cake, cover it with either a few fruit slices of your choice and then the icing, or just the icing alone. You can garnish it with more fruit slices, nuts, chocolate pieces, whipped cream or more.

If you want to make it a 'Man-Cake' or for a party, add some rum flavor or real rum to the cake mix before baking! Haven't tried Whiskey, but that would be another option. Or any other alcohol that you think may fit!

I serve it with ice creme and whipped creme!

      Know the feeling. I have a ton of recipes for German Christmas food, but the flour and other ingredients is different and the temperature math is a pain!

      You are making me very hungry Cat.

      I love to bake as well but sadly in the 3rd world Oven is a foreign word.

      In China not only couldn't I find one they couldn't understand what it was or why I would want such a thing.

      I finally found a convection oven, same here in Colombia although they do know what one is.

      Oh how I miss my American kitchen,,, lol.
