This is a joke, a bit of whimsy to lighten up your next party. The cake is
really a quick mix dessert made with Oreo cookies and soft squishy stuff.
The trick is to capture everyone's attention with an announcement of some
sort, and as you are speaking, trowel out some of the dirt from the flower
pot around the flowers and eat it. May be followed by a worm dug out of the
"dirt". You may substitute vanilla pudding for the chocolate if you want,
and use up to 20 oz of Oreos. Please use a clean new plastic flower pot or
take the precaution of lining a clay pot with foil and wrap the stems of
live flowers if you use them in order to prevent any toxins from entering
the dessert. Crush the cookies until they resemble potting soil. Set aside.
Cream the butter or margarine, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth
and fluffy. Set aside. Combine the pudding mix and milk until well blended.
Then fold in the whipped topping. Gently fold the cream cheese and pudding
mixtures together. To put the "cake" together, layer one-third of the cookie
crumbs followed by 1/2 of the pudding mixture, 1/3 of the crumbs, the rest
of the pudding mixture and topping with the balance of the crumbs.
Refrigerate 10-12 hours before serving.
Remove from refrigerator, decorate with flowers.
Serve by digging out portions with the trowel.
Serves 10 to 12.
