Frugal Birthday Cakes: Part 2-Free 1st Birthday Cake

Some of you may already know this, but you can receive a FREE cake for your child's first birthday from Acme!  Thankfully, I have known about this for the past four years and have gotten free cakes for all three of my boys.  You usually need to give the bakery at least 24 hours notice and when you pick up the cake, you show them your child's birth certificate.  You can get a free 1/4 sheet cake, or use the coupon (I think it's for about $15.99) towards a larger cake or a cake with a photo on it.  I prefer to do the photo cakes, so I usually get a 1/4 sheet cake with a picture of my child on it, and pay only $7.  Not bad in my book.  And for a grocery store cake, I think Amce makes the best...if you get the whipped cream icing!
