The instructions call for 8" round cakes and ding dongs. I decided to do a mini version, and use ding dongs (instead of round cakes) & oreos (instead of ding dongs).
Now, keep in mind that I do NOT do cakes. I don't usually make my kids' b-day cakes, and I have rarely ever even baked or frosted a normal flat cake. (I'm more of a cupcake-making-Mom than a cake-making-Mom) So again, I have no idea what made me try this, but I did. (I figured at the worst it would look ridiculous and/or fall apart, and we could just eat the messed up ding dongs and oreos with frosting on them and no one would have to know. lol)
Although this is FAR from perfect, and definitely the work of an amateur, overall I think it turned out pretty cute :) Especially for a 7 year old and 3 year old who would like it no matter what considering it consists of ding dongs, oreos, lots of frosting, chocolate chips and fruit roll up...talk about being in sugar heaven! lol
So, here it is...
Now I'm off to bed.
