Packet Mix Cake – please forgive me, I have sinned.

Please forgive me, I have made a packet mix cake.
Miss asked for a chocolate cake, she wanted a chocolate Victoria sponge but I fancied cafe style chocolate cake. I was looking at the price of chocolate to go in one and noticed it was cheaper to buy a packet mix, curiosity got the better of me and here were are. 

The cake is currently looking rather huge in the kitchen (cooked in 20cm tin)  and waiting to be decorated by Miss when she gets home from school. We shall consume and report later.

Decorated, tried and we all agree- my cakes are far better. I found it oily and tasteless. Oh well, now we know. It will be finished up in lunch boxes.

Must just add, it did get slightly better as the days went on and it got eaten. I wouldn’t buy it again though.
