Snowball Cake

Mmm, this cake is sooooo good! I found this recipe on Kraft's site. It seems fitting with the snow we've been getting the last few days :) One great thing about this recipe is minimal dishes to clean up! You cook the cake in the bowl you mix it in! I'm just going to copy the directions exactly from them. Their directions are great, very detailed. They even have a short video if you want to watch that.

Snowball Cake

1 pkg. (2-layer size) devil's food cake mix
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 egg
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cold milk
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

1. Prepare cake batter, in 2-1/2-qt. ovenproof bowl, as directed on package; scrape side of bowl. Beat cream cheese, egg and granulated sugar until well blended; spoon into center of batter in bowl.

2. Bake 1 hour 5 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in bowl 10 min. Loosen cake from bowl with knife; invert onto wire rack. Remove bowl. Cool cake completely.

3. Meanwhile, beat dry pudding mix, powdered sugar and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in COOL WHIP. Refrigerate until ready to use.

4. Place cake on plate; frost with pudding mixture. Cover with coconut. Keep refrigerated.

A Gift

Adara received a Baptism invite for one of her good friends so we decided to make her a cute little gift for her to give her. I found an empty box that I had from some re-inkers and decorated it up and filled it up with Tootsie rolls. Then we covered a Mini composition notebook to match it. Hoping she liked it! :)
