Ok, I’ll admit it, while I make a mean baked ziti, I am a terrible baker of desserts. I burn the cookies, the muffins come out resembling hockey pucks, and the cakes end up looking like the leaning tower of Pisa. It doesn’t stop me from trying…but often more ends up in the compost bin rather than on the table.
So when I found this delectable no-bake dessert, I knew it was for me! The kids loved making it and EVERYONE loved eating it!
This is such a great dessert! We used it as a birthday cake, but it is very versatile as I have also seen it used as
- Mothers Day Cake (omit the worms) and serve in a plastic bucket with artificial flowers “planted” in the middle
- As an Over the Hill cake – served in a 9×13 glass pan with a gravestone on the top
- Or made into individual cups if you were doing it for a large group like a classroom.
