Bake 'N Fill Birthday!
Sarah wanted to bake her own birthday cake this year. She has her very own Betty Crocker Bake 'N Fill set of pans that she got for Christmas one year. When she was little, she would see the commercial for them on tv and kept telling us that she wants those pans! We use them once in awhile. This time, she opted for chocolate cake with Oreo Cookies and Cream ice cream filling, cream cheese frosting which she tinted green, topped with Everlasting Gobstoppers.
It requires two cake mixes, but only uses 1 1/2, so you end up with 12 extra cupcakes. There is an insert pan that sits on top when it bakes, forming the center space. I would sometimes rather fill it with pudding since the ice cream cakes have to remain frozen. Even though we let this one sit out for awhile, it was still frozen cake. And, allowing it to freeze and thaw caused the icing and the Gobstoppers to sweat. All in all it was delicious and Sarah had a blast!
