Blog Party KickOff

Thanks to 5 Minutes for Mom for hosting this Blog Party!

Kick back, grab some coffee and relax. I've got a great birthday cake idea for you and a short story that is sure to grab your attention.

To make this unique cake you will need 1 chocolate cake mix, 2 cups of oreo cookie crumbs, 2 pks instant pudding, clean new dump truck, shovel and other cars to decorate.

Bake the cakes according to the package directions. While cake is cooking prepare the pudding using 1/2 the milk the pkg. calls for. When cake is cooled cut into chunks. Arrange one layer of crumbs in the dump truck followed by cake chunks, pudding and repeat. Making sure to save some of the crumbs for the final layer and for any decorating you want to do.

This cake is soooooo easy and kids love it. I recently made it for my nephew's 2 yr. birthday party. I think he was pretty thrilled to eat cake out of a truck. Hint: to make the clean up easier line the inside of the dump truck with aluminum foil.

I'm going to put my thinking cap on and come up with some more unique ideas for you to try. Check back later in the week to see what else I have in store for this Party!
