Thrifty Sheet Cake

Huge sheet cake for $10 home-made!


  • "full sheet" foil pan
  • 3 cake mixes (I recommend Pillsbury)
  • 2 ready-made tubs of frosting
  • sprinkles


Prepare the batter as the box directions (add 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise to each batter batch for moister result).

Cook as directions, but it ends up being about 45 minutes. Be sure to turn down the heat at the end to about 300 degrees F. to allow the middle of the cake to finish cooking without the edges drying out.

Serve it in the pan. It's not as deluxe as the store bought cake, but it's about $10 for this cake vs. about $200 for a bakery cake, and it tastes better.

My grocery store's fresh bakery has fantastic quarter sheet, decorated cakes for $19.95. They are moist and delicious. I don't think their wedding cakes even cost $200.
