How long will it take to put the kit together?

It depends on whether you are baking, buying or ordering a cake and how much money you have collected to put in the money envelope bags. The longest part is placing the money in the bags. However, you can do that while watching tv. Add more time if you are baking a cake. Just remember, that a little bit of your time will be worth seeing the guest of honor smile from ear to ear when they see the money coming out.
