When you’re feeling down in the dumps, just remember, you always have dump cakes to make everything better. MORE+ LESS-

Don’t get us wrong: Valentine’s Day is great. Except when it’s really, really not. So if you are looking forward to 24 hours of bon-bons, foot rubs and champagne sipped out of matching monogrammed flutes, well, we’re happy for you. Really. But for the rest of us, love is hard. Dump cakes are easy. You do the math.

1. Sugar Cookie Butter Dump Cake

This cake will never forget your birthday. This cake will notice that you ate two vegan meals in a row. This cake understands the importance of hanging the dishrag over the kitchen faucet. This cake is perfect.

2. Blueberry Cream Dump Cake

For all the times that love has left you shaken vs. stirred, a no-stir dessert that’s truly at its best eaten directly from the pan. Because that way, it’s only one piece, no matter how much you eat.

3. Caramel Apple Dump Cake with Spiced Whipped Cream

If you’re in need of a… shall we say… distraction, here it comes with whipped cream on top. Every bite is a little bit of the loveable, wonderful you being rebuilt. We promise.

4. Salted Caramel-Chocolate Dump Cake

Yasssss. The salt in your tears will be completely canceled out by the glorious, gooey therapy of chocolate, caramel and more chocolate.

5. Strawberry Cream Dump Cake

That pan in front of you doesn’t just hold one of the most luscious, soul-saving cakes you might ever eat. It is also jam-packed with 100% of your daily-recommended allowance of Everything-is-gonna-be-alright. Thank goodness.

You're going to need one of these comfort food dinners, too.
