I first saw one of these cakes when I was looking around for wedding cake ideas, it was at the official hostess cakes website. I decided on a more traditional wedding cake for our wedding but always wanted to make a cake like this of my own.
More recently, I came across a cake made out of various Hostess brand goodies on the fatgirltrappedinaskinnybody.blogspot.com site- hers is much classier looking than my example below, which is the trashiest (I think the digital candle holders really top it off- they were flashing with his age at the party!).
My friend Keith’s birthday presented me with the perfect opportunity. He is the cake expert in our group, and has made some really special cakes for our birthdays over the years. Everything from a pair of rollerskates (my favorite), to David Bowie’s face, a Simpsons cake, and a guitar…. I am not that talented but this cake was still a hit. An added benefit, you don’t need cutlery or plates to eat this cake so it’s great to bring to a public place or you could even take the ingredients camping and assemble it when you get there (I used drinking straws instead of wooden skewers so no one would hurt themselves after a few drinks.)
PS Wrong watermark on photo – it’s mine and belongs to this site (sometimes Mama Brain is really a mamabrain…).
