The Cake Mix Poem

The Cake Mix Poem

This craft project is great fun to make. I actually came up with the idea while seeing to the baby at 3 am one morning. Then Rita and I put together the poem below.

What you need

Packet of Cake mix
Small gift bag
printed poem


Simply add a packet of cake mix to the gift bag, keep it’s original packaging so the recipient can make the cake. If you use a boxed cake, write out the directions and include it in the bag.

—- Cake Mix Poem —-

I hope you will excuse me for giving you this bag,
I did the very best I could with the precious time I had,
I should have known from the start, the eggs fell through the shopping cart.
I set aside a day to bake, the only day I didn’t wake.
Then the flour fell off the shelf, not on the floor but on myself.
I tried again with no success with cake mix running down my dress.
I’ve given up! It’s yours to bake, I hope you enjoy it for goodness sake.
