The horrors of cake mix packets...

It was the birthday of my youngest son's favourite can't live without cuddly thing (better know as Dilly) last Wednesday and, as I was still sore from our day trip to Leiden the day before I wasn't up to baking a cake for him as I'd promised, I decided to finally use up that packet of ready made add water only cake mix ("Home Made" brand)  that someone had given me a while ago and was close to going out of date. I rather wish I hadn't - it was horrible and as the image shows we didn't even finish more than one or two bites before we decided it was just too horrible to eat - we threw it away in the end.

The moral of this story - it's nicer to make real cake made from real ingredients, and tbh it's not as hard as people make it out to be - even my kids can make a cake on their own with a bit of help with weighing out the ingredients first.
