WFMW - Getting More For Free

Now that the baking time is upon us, I am looking for ways to do more without putting out any additional expense. This is an easy way to make what you have go further.

Did you know that you can expand your frosting to double its size? When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. It will double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. This is espcially helpful when you are doing a layered cake that calls for frosting on the inside.

You also eat less sugar/calories per serving.

If you don't have enough frosting for layering, consider using a jam or preserve that is in your fridge that will compliment your cake. You can concoct a new creation right in your own kitchen and feel brilliant at the same time.

Getting more for less definitely works for me.

Head to Shannon's for some great ideas.
