So I finally found an Easy-Bake oven for my son that’s not pink. I never mind having pink things around but something just bit my butt about the ovens being pink for girls. We found a teal green and white oven. Seriously did it really take them 20 years to make an Easy-Bake oven that was any other color than pink? I never got one for boy #1 but at almost 16 I thought he was a little old, so I bought it for boy #2. Today he made his first cake with a little help from me. He was so proud of himself and we really had fun. It’s a great way to spend a snowy day in Alaska for sure.
The official little boxes of mix mixes are really expensive but with minimal digging I found the equation for breaking down a store bought cake mix to make mini cakes. I’m sharing it with the hope that if you have an easy bake oven you just can’t afford to buy mixes for, you will pull it out, dust it off and have a little mid-winter fun with your kids, cheapster style.
