This Hip Tip is a sweet one!
As you may have seen in our previous post, Costco is no longer selling its amazing Half Sheet Cakes, and we are so bummed!
However, Hip2Save reader, Ellen, has a solution! She purchased a Wilton 11″x15″ sheet cake pan, cardboard containers, and a 13-pound container of Sam’s vanilla whipped icing!
For a 40th Anniversary Party, she decorated one with sprinkles, one with fresh strawberries, had Walmart make an edible image for one, and the fourth sheet cake was made dairy and gluten-free.
They were such a big hit, everyone loved them and asked where I bought them! Since then, the pans have been able to be reused for birthdays, graduation, and holidays! Plus, sometimes I will just leave the cake in the pan and ice it and decorate it! I hope this “hip” idea can help save some other fellow hipsters as much as it has saved me! – Ellen
