Easy Cake Recipes

The holidays are officially over, and that means the next big one is coming up – Valentine’s Day! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this holiday. Yes, Christmas and New Years are definitely faves but when it comes to celebrating and sprinkling joy for those you love, I’m all about this holiday. Who’s with me?! Raise your hand if you love baking for Valentine’s Day! You and me both sister! But every year I feel like I go way overboard, and I wanted to be sure I had something super easy up my sleeve for 2020. Not everything you make has to be made from scratch, all the time, and sometimes I have to stop and tell myself this. Every dessert is made with love, and will be delicious just the same. I am so tickled pink to share this cake with you!

The dessert will taste delicious and take a fraction of the time to make. Talk about a win-win! You can go to any store and buy their angel food cake, and you are halfway there to an amazing Valentine’s Day dessert!

Semi-Homemade Desserts

I love making homemade desserts for my family. But sometimes it is totally okay to remember that you can step back and make something with store-bought items! By combining a few ingredients, you can make something super delicious, and with all the time you save, you’ll have more time for your family and more time for eating cake! ;) Whether this cake is going to be for Valentine’s Day, a spring cake, or anything in between, it will be such a fun addition to your menu!
