Or more appropriately… How to Make the Best of a Messed Up Cake.
This dessert comes courtesy of my sister. She wanted to bake a cake for me – chocolate of course with chocolate chips – and was already to decorate it and surprise me. One problem. The cake stuck to the pan and fell to pieces when she tried to take it out.
Now, if it were me, I would have just made some cake balls  out of it. But being the creative one that she is, she turned her mess into a masterpiece.
I don’t have her cake recipe, but here’s what you do.
1. Accidentally mess up your cake on purpose by mistake
2. Whip up some chocolate pudding
3. Layer it all in a trifle dish  with some cool whip and refrigerate.
… and in the words of Tim Gunn… “Make it Work.”
If she hadn’t told me it was a mistake, I never would have known.
Actually, there was only one problem with this cold, creamy, cakelicious dessert. It was way too easy to eat. Let’s just say, I wish I had a bigger spoon.
