Strawberry Cake, Almost Homemade

Let’s Make it Easy!

Last week we had friends over for dinner and I was running short on time, and I wanted to make our dinner as special as possible. I had main meal pretty much already prepped, but dessert was a different ballgame all together… I had kind of totally forgotten all about it! But that’s where my Walmart+ membership came in handy!

Have y’all heard about Walmart+ yet?! If you haven’t listen up, I’m addicted. It’s *fast and free* delivery, sometimes as soon as same day, with those same everyday low prices you love. And since I was out of some of my beloved baking ingredients that I really *needed* to whip up something special I just hopped onto my Walmart+ account, ordered my baking items (piping bags, new piping tips, and cake mix (I cheated a bit!)!), and threw in this sweatshirt, a pair of jeans, and a dress (or two, whoops!) to hit that $35 minimum and within hours a few of the items where already on my doorstep… it was crazy!

I was blown away by how quickly everything got here, and truly how inexpensive it was! Plus, it was kind of fun to be able to do a little Spring wardrobe shopping while actually getting what I needed for our dessert! 😉

I ended up making a strawberry cake using this gluten free/dairy free vanilla cake mix. I typically never cut corners when I’m baking and always believe homemade is better… but honestly this cake mix was pretty darn good. Plus it gave me some time to really put effort into the frosting. I made a dairy free buttercream frosting and added in mashed strawberries to give it a little somethin’ and topped the cake off with cut fresh berries on top. The cake turned out beautifully, tasted *so* good, and more than that, it made the night feel special.

I love utilizing this membership to scoop up those items I need quickly that may take a little longer to come in, but if you are in a SUPER rush, you can also use the mobile scan & go benefit through Walmart+ and checkout while you shop in store, which is crazy to me!! Also, while you are at the store, you can save 5¢ on gas, which just feels like a win to me.

Anyway, Walmart+ is a new kind of membership at $98 per year, or $12.95 per month, and it truly will revolutionize the way you shop in store, online, for groceries, and more! Try it out, I promise you’ll love it.
