GIFT: Cake in a Can

I first came across this concept on notonthehighstreet website, a cake in a can. It's pretty self explanatory and I think it's simply genius, it's so much more than a cake. The Food Ministry have created a Cake in a Can range that are ideal gifts for loved ones. They have a Valentine's Day, Christmas, Wedding and general range of Cake in a Can - which are available on notonthehighstreet website for £4.99 here.

When I received the Valentine's Day Cake in a Can* (£4.99) I couldn't believe how cute the packaging is. I chose the 'Romantic Pink' design but there is also 'Raunchy Red' and Mysterious Black and Red' designs. When you open the ring pull of the can you get a bag of cake mix, all you have to do is add 2 tbsp of water and mix. Pour the mixture back into the oiled can and bake for 15 minutes. You then have a freshly baked spicy fruit cake baked in a tin - I love the fact it's in a can, so unique!

The Valentine's Day Cake in a Can is a spicy fruit cake but they also have a Chocolate Cake in a Can and a Lemon Cake in a Can as well.

This is the perfect gift for any occasion but especially birthday's. My brother lives a couple of hours away from me at the moment but it doesn't mean I don't want to give him a birthday cake. Instead of trying to send a homemade cake through the post for a small fortune, only for it to sit there for a couple of weeks (I know what my brother is like, such a student!) and then not be eaten. Cake in a Can is perfect to send someone who lives further away from you, they can make the cake up when they want to and enjoy a freshly baked cake in less than 20 minutes!

The spicy cake was so deliciously moist and I now have a cute can to keep!

Have you come across Cake in a Can before?
