You know how you think: “I’ll make the cake for our birthday party. It will save us some money. Bakery cakes can be so expensive.” At least, that’s what I think (unless there is a COSTCO nearby).
Well, I just ran the numbers. I’m making a regular 9”x 13” pan cake that I will flip over and slice in two across the middle to make two layers, and then frost. Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Check this out.
Flour: R$2.00Butter: 5.60
Brown sugar: 1.50
Cream Cheese: 20.00
Confectioners' sugar: 4.00
That comes to R$43.20, give or take, plus my time (and love for my guests). So I guess the thought still applies here in Niterói – even if the cream cheese is R$20.
Stay tuned for the recipe and some pics.
