It’s hard for me to believe that my little man turned 5 this past Friday. To celebrate, I took him to the store and let him choose what kind of cake he wanted me to make. I am not really known for baking so I wanted something that was super simple, but also tasted really yummy!
Ryan and I headed over to our local Vons store and had fun looking at all the cake mix & frosting flavors. The one that caught our eye was Betty Crocker’s Super Moist Cake Mix (Ryan chose Chocolate Fudge) and Betty Crocker’s Rich & Creamy Milk Chocolate frosting. In the cake mix aisle, there was a display rack that had 2 liter soda bottles on the top, cake mixes in the middle & frosting on the bottom. I had to check it out!
The red tags on the 2 liters of soda told us all about the “$5 Birthday Bundle”. In order to get the $5 Birthday Bundle, here is what we needed to buy:
I couldn’t believe what a great deal that was! The cake mix & frosting alone would have cost more than $5! Ryan and I stuck with the chocolate cake & frosting, plus I grabbed two 2-liters of A&W root beer for the older people in the family and a package of Betty Crocker candles. At check out, our cashier told me that since I used my Vons club card, I saved $6 and change! I saved more than I spent!
After a birthday dinner of tortellini, Ryan couldn’t wait to dive into his cake. I am admittedly not the best cake froster in the world, but 5 year olds don’t care about that! They just want the cake! All 3 of my kids loved how the cake came out & couldn’t stop thanking me for it (if they only knew how easy it is to make!)
Just because this is called the $5 Birthday Bundle doesn’t mean you ONLY have to use it for someone’s birthday! How about making Mom some cupcakes this Mother’s Day? Or, how about some yummy mini cupcakes as an after school treat for your kiddos? have a graduation party in June? You could stock up now on this great deal and save! Any time or occasion is just a little bit better when you add cake to it!
The $5 Birthday Bundle is available from April 24th to May 21st when you shop at Safeway, Vons or Pavilions. Head to the baking aisle, and pick up a box of Betty Crocker Cake Mix, Betty Crocker frosting, 24 rainbow birthday candles and two 2-liters of 7UP brand sodas (7UP, A&W, Canada Dry, Sunkist, Dr. Pepper & Hawaiian Punch). Remember to use your store club card to take advantage of this great deal!
