Or, if your husband is anything like mine, DO try this at home.
M- doesn't love cake, no he wouldn't pass it up if someone handed him a slice. He just seems to gravitate to the pudding, key lime, and silk pies of the world, pies and snack cakes. Snack-cakes = M's FAVORITE. Terrible yes, but whatever, he's pretty healthy even if he and Little Debbie do have a personal relationship.
For his birthday the other day I decided to not drive myself nuts worrying that the cake I made was moist enough, or cool enough to frost in time to serve. I decided to take some of his favorite foods and make a cake. CAKE is stretching it a bit, you'll see.
Warning: Not for the faint of heart,
or any cake purists out there.
Continue to glue your pieces together until it is the size you want, I added one more row around the outside. Wipe your plate clean and put in the freezer for about 15 minutes. When it comes out frost with whatever you want, I used the leftover pudding mixture, some actual frosting and a bit of whipped cream and chocolate jimmies.
This is what the inside looks like after serving it up--
This little cake was about 7 inches wide and made about 12 servings because the slices were SO rich and SWEET!
Enjoy, or don't.
