  • Yes, you can. I did it once years ago when I didn't have a working oven. It's way more expensive than buying a cake mix, but it can be done.

  • You can buy cake mix, eggs, oil, milk and icing for less than half the cost of a store bought cake, and have eggs, oil, and milk left over for other meals.

  • Wait. I misread the original question.

    No.

    I cannot do that. I don't get food stamps.

  • I believe that you can BUT why not just buy what you need to make one. You can make about 9 for what it costs you to buy one made.
