    Default Do you think 7/11 sells packet cake mix?

    I want some. But I don't want to walk to 7/11 to find they don't have any, or I might jump in front on a bus.

    I don't have the ingredients to make a cake from scratch otherwise I would.

    Call them! I'd say they probably would.

    No I doubt it - mine doesn't even sell eggs or butter. (potentially you are in a failed birthday cake attempt at the eleventh hour like I was once?)

    What ingredients do/don't you have? You'd be surprised what can be substituted for what....

    Naebie's suggestion should be good then!

    Did you buy the pancake mix? If you did you could also consider adding to that a cup of s/r, a cup of carrot and apple purée and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. That 'might' work...
