Spring Celebration Garden Cake

This easy-to-create, garden-themed dessert 
will have your guests digging for seconds.

You’ll Need

  • 2 – 8” chocolate cakes
  • 2 packages instant chocolate pudding
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 cups white icing
  • 1 drop of green food colouring
  • ½ cup Oreo cookie crumbs
  • Gummy worms
  • Candy, chocolate, real or artificial/candy flowers
  • “Happy Birthday” sign (optional)

Prep and Cook

  • Combine the instant pudding mix with milk as per the package directions and allow to set, approximately five minutes.
  • Using a medium sized glass bowl or vessel, break one of the chocolate cakes into half and crumble into the bottom of the bowl. Set aside the other half.
  • Top with half of the pudding mixture. Break the whole cake into small pieces and sprinkle over top. Cover with the leftover pudding, followed by the crumbled remaining half cake.
  • Insert 8 to 10 gummy worms into the 'dirt'. Be sure to lay some along the glass so they can be seen.
  • Using a #22 tip, or small spatula, pipe or spread the green icing over the top layer of cake.
  • Stick the flowers into the middle of the cake. Divide the cookie crumbs into four equal parts and pour each onto a different spot on the cake making a mound. Stick a gummy worm into each, leaving some of the body peeking out.
  • Add a 'Happy Birthday' sign, if desired.
