Pudgy Cake

Pillsbury Cake Redux.
This cake was inspired by a few different things…first and foremost by the cool Pillsbury products I received in the mail (that you can get too) AND by haters.
I have to admit to you, I kinda love haters.
I mean if you have people who take the time to write emails or oddball comments it means you’re important enough to them to take the time out of their day to let you know you spelled flour like “flower” or that a “snowflake actually has 8 points, not 6”.
Plus, I kinda get a chuckle when people get riled up, ya know?
Honestly, where would The Situation be if he didn’t have haters?
I can tell where he WOULDN’T be…on TV.
See, sometime haters are the fuel that pushes you forward.
Don’t get me wrong, I certainly am not going to make a career based on my rock solid abs.
But I CAN make a career making abs across the world squishy.
So this cake was inspired by a super cool person out there who said that I am the reason America is fat.

 I love that I have that power. Mwah-ha-ha-ha!


So if you’re looking to get your pudge on this is for you.
Be warned, though, it’s hard core.
Like the Hustler of desserts.
Not NC-17…this is Triple X.
There’s cake, there’s brownie, there’s cookie dough, there’s vanilla frosting, there’s chocolate frosting, there are chocolate chip cookies…Gah!
It’s kinda like that weird Turducken thing people make on Thanksgiving…but with none of the same stuff…and WAY better

  1. For years I’ve been told my love is fattening and dang it, I take pride in it! I love making yummy noms for my boyfriend, friends, and family ^_^ . My fiance lost his almost-6pk abs the first year we were together. Not only did I warn him but so did my father (who says I’m just like my mother) and close friend warned him to beware my fattening love lol. He sooo didn’t listen XD

  2. Bahahaha! You’re making America fat? I love it! I must have missed the post where you hog-tied all of America to a chair and force-fed them one of your delicious concoctions. I’m Canadian, so I’m safe I guess. Phew.
    I just popped over to your site after my weekly drool-fest at ConfessionsofaCookbookQueen. I am now following both of you, which will significantly cut down on my productivity at work. But I have to read your posts there because I can’t jump up from my desk and immediately make what I see. The way I see it, this is the only way we can be friends without me weighing 200 pounds by Christmas.
    So, yeah.
    Love the site, and look forward to seeing all the Caramel Apple recipes from both you and Ms. CB Queen are dishing up!
    Happy baking,
