I had to make a cake for the church bake sale and I didn't have a lot of time-so I used what I had on hand to make it. I made just a regular box mix cake and a homemade whipped cream frosting. The frosting was SO GOOD and so easy to make (just 3 ingredients) that I'm pretty sure I'll never buy the canned stuff again. All you need is heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla. Here is the recipe I used. And here is one of the cakes I made-yum!
