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.

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

Step-By-Step

1Crush Oreos. Put 1/3 of the crushed Oreos into a new, clean flower pot. Set aside.
2Mix butter, cream cheese and sugar and vanilla together. Set aside.
3Combine milk and pudding mix. Fold Cool Whip into the pudding.
4Fold together pudding mixture and butter-cream cheese mixture.
5Layer 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.
6As 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.
7Chill in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
