That feeling you get when you realize that you forgot someone’s birthday is just the worst. You can set alarms and have alerts pop up, but if it slips your mind, it slips your mind, so it’s better to have a back-up plan in place for when it happens.
It doesn’t make much sense to have a bunch of generic gifts in your closet, but having some cake on hand is something doable. Plus, who doesn’t like cake on their birthday?
The Food Ministry’s Cake in a Can makes “baking” easy, since you’ll only have to pour water into it as they’re filled with cake mix for your chosen flavor. Go for lemon if you feel like something tart or go for chocolate because that’s everyone’s favorite. Better yet, stock up on a few different flavors because you never know when you might need to bake a cake.
Each of the tins are available from Not on the High Street for £5 (~$8.50 USD).
