My golden birthday was when I was six and I vaguely remember nearly being run over by a woman speeding by in the school zone close to my elementary school. Though I was in the crosswalk, she jumped out of her car and yelled at me to watch where I was going. Then my mom took me to the mall where I got my ears pierced, an event I'd been waiting for forever. It was an emotional roller coaster of a day to say the least.
My baby sister's golden birthday was destined to be fabulous (and not only because I made a guest appearance, haha!). I thought it would be fun to relive some of her birthdays past and make a family favorite: dirt cake.
Here's what you'll need:
24 Oreos, crushed
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) margarine or butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 8 oz cream cheese block, softened
12 oz whipped topping
2 3 1/2 oz Instant French Vanilla Pudding
3 1/2 cup milk
Combine the two mixtures. In an 8 or 9 inch planter, layer pudding mixture with crushed Oreos. Continue layering pudding mixture with Oreos until pudding mixture is gone. Top with rest of crushed Oreos. Refrigerate.
***What would a dirt cake be without gummy worms?! Add gummy worms to the pudding mixture and place a few on top!***
The birthday girl and her new baby!
