This popular "novelty" cake is a hit at children's parties, especially around Halloween. You'll receive many appreciative compliments from your guests such as "Ewww, that's gross!"

It really resembles a pudding more than it does a conventional cake.

Cook:

Ingredients

1-1 1/4Lb. pkg
oreo cookies
1 pkg
(8 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 c
butter, softened
1 c
powdered sugar
3 c
milk
1
(12 oz.) tub cool whip (can use chocolate)
2 pkg
(3 1/2 oz.) instant vanilla or chocolate pudding
1/2 tsp
vanilla
-------
gummy worms and/or other critters

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crush Oreos. Put 1/3 of the crushed Oreos into a new, clean flower pot. Set aside.
2
Mix butter, cream cheese and sugar and vanilla together. Set aside.
3
Combine milk and pudding mix. Fold Cool Whip into the pudding.
4
Fold together pudding mixture and butter-cream cheese mixture.
5
Layer this mixture (about 1/3 of it) onto the crumbled cookies in the pot. Next, add another layer of the pudding mixture, then another layer of cookie crumbs, continuing until all ingredients are used.
6
As you're layering the ingredients, decoratively place several gummy worms and critters in the "soil" so they will be seen emerging. If you have a toy (clean) garden trowel, a plastic daisy, or some edible flowers, these can also be used creatively to embellish the presentation.
7
Chill in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
