We have all seen these cakes in a flowerpot for parties, brunches, showers, wedding or any special occasion but we wanted to add a few fun tips to help recreate these. Watch your guest light up when they see this creations in a clay garden pot. They think they are real and don't know they can really eat it. Once you tell them the fun begins.
You can use one large flowerpot like the recipe below you break the pudding & cookies up into individual small clay flowerpots. Both work great.
Have a clean new terra cotta clay garden pot 8" x 10"
Cover the drain hole in the bottom of the flower pot with wax paper circle so the pudding doesn't drain out. Or place a whole oreo cookie over the hole as shown.
In a food processor crush cookies till fine. set aside. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and sugar till smooth. In another bowl, mix pudding and milk till blended. Fold into cream cheese mix. Fold in the whipped topping.
Start by alternating layers of cookie crumbs and pudding mix. End with cookie crumbs on top so that it looks like dirt. Chill the cake pots for several hours or overnight.
Now is the time to decorate. Use silk flowers, rock candy and gummy worms. You can cut a straw off and insert into the pudding first, then stick the silk flowers into the straws. They are stiffer and hold up better. Have fun with decorating. We have seen all kinds of fun ideas.
