Last week was Jari’s 11th birthday. I wanted to make him something special but I couldn’t really bake a real cake yet. When I came across this dirt cake, I knew I wanted to make something similar. He loves playing soccer so I’m thinking a soccer field would be good.
I kinda followed the recipe but instead of instant pudding, I made one from scratch. It turned out pretty good.
I wasn’t really feeling well that weekend but I know I have to push through with this project specially since I showed my daughter the pictures and she was looking forward to making and decorating the cake. I’ve also bought some chocolate rocks and green sprinkles for grass.
In the end, I prepared the filling and crushed the Oreos and Jon assemble the layers. The kids decorated it, even doing rock balancing. The cake was great on its own but I found it too sweet with the sprinkles and the chocolates. I’ll probably do this again if I can buy crushed Oreos since that was the most time consuming task for me (I just used our coffee grinder and it can only crush 2 cookies at a time!)
Overall, we had a great time with this cake and I’m looking forward to more cooking adventures with my family!
