I SPY: The Cake Bomb

Oct 7, 2015

Did you see Chrissy Teigen's savory cake?  It was made by Breescakes from corn bread, mac n' cheese, mashed potato, fried chicken, and gravy.  Such a genius creation, that inspired me to copy it for my 1st borns birthday.  He turns 11 today!  It's our tradition to celebrate the whole week, so last nights dinner was this surprise cake.

Not quite as fancy as the original, because Breescakes went all the way with the decorative mash potato icing!  SHEESH these professional bakers!  But hey, ours had rainbow sprinkles!!!  That was the easiest way to add some festive sparkle to the plate.

I'll be honest, I didn't slave away in the kitchen to make all these separate dishes.  Instead I bought everything all ready made from Wholefoods.  Cheat I know!  But it's not Thanksgiving…I got no time to be making a four course dinner!  If you go my route it's easy peesy.  It will just take time to prep everything, assemble, and be sure it doesn't end up looking like the leaning tower of Pisa!  HA.  Here is the construction of layers under the mash potato.

Does this cake look like the bomb or what?  I thought it was, because it's all my favorite comfort foods thrown into one.  But my kids were not won over.  They had a hard time with their food all mixed in together.  So ok, not for everyone, especially those finicky eaters where food can't touch.  But still, in my opinion a genius concept.  You agree?
