Beer box cake
RECIPE BY BRONWYN
Being a teacher, you get to taste a variety of cakes that the mom’s send to school on their kids birthday.
This one was seriously delicious and practical because you send the cake to school and then forget about it.
No need to worry about the tray or your favorite cake tin. Go and ask at your local liquor store for a beer box. (The beer box is the box that you get if you bought a pack of 24 beers)
