Ding Dong!!

Todd's parents came in this past weekend for a visit. They had not seen Hudson since Christmas so they were dying to see him. It was a quick visit but we still seemed to have a very busy weekend. On Saturday, Todd wanted to take them Lexington and show them the school he works at and we also showed them the lake where we go in the summers . We also did a little shopping since Todd has some gift cards to some of the local businesses and then we had lunch at Sparky's. We came back and Todd's Dad helped him hang some much needed blinds in the kitchen. So we stayed pretty busy but I did find time to make a yummy dessert that we all enjoyed Saturday night.

Ding Dong Cake

I got this recipe from my cousin Katie who I think got it from Judy Harris. So I can't take full credit for it but it is sooo delicious. I thought I would share it with you all:

1 box of Devil's Food Cake Mix
3/4 cup of Powdered Sugar
8 oz. of Cool Whip
4 oz. of cream cheese
1 can of ready made Chocolate Frosting

Mix the cake and bake according to directions in a bundt (I just used two round pans) pan. Slice the cake into two layers. Mix the powdered sugar, Cool Whip & cream cheese together and spread this mixture between the two layers. Microwave the frosting for about 20 seconds and pour it slowly over the top and sides of the cake.

I am absolutely DYING over that cake! It looks SOOOO good! Wouldn't that taste good after one of our Los Portales suppers??? Ha!

I bet the oreos would be good! I have thought of several things you could do with it. Please let me know how it turns out:)
