   This is a joke, a bit of whimsy to lighten up your
   next party. The cake is really a quick mix dessert
   made with Oreo cookies and soft squishy stuff. The
   trick is to capture everyone’s attention with an
   announcement of some sort, and as you are speaking,
   trowel out some of the dirt from the flower pot around
   the flowers and eat it. May be followed by a worm dug
   out of the “dirt”. You may substitute vanilla pudding
   for the chocolate if you want, and use up to 20 oz of
   Oreos. Please use a clean new plastic flower pot or
   take the precaution of lining a clay pot with foil and
   wrap the stems of live flowers if you use them in
   order to prevent any toxins from entering the dessert.
     Crush the cookies until they resemble potting soil.
    Set aside.   Cream the butter or margarine, cream
   cheese, sugar  and vanilla until smooth and fluffy.
    Set aside.  Combine the pudding mix and milk until
   well blended.  Then fold in the whipped topping.
    Gently fold the cream cheese and pudding mixtures
   together.   To put the “cake” together, layer
   one-third of the cookie crumbs followed by 1/2 of the
   pudding mixture, 1/3 of the crumbs, the rest of the
   pudding mixture and topping with the balance of the
   crumbs.   Refrigerate 10-12 hours before serving.
    Remove from refrigerator, decorate with flowers.
    Serve by digging out portions with the trowel.
    Serves 10 to 12.
