Punch Bowl Cakes.... Make a cake out of a box (just for convenience), then layer it in a punch bowl (hence the name, any big bowl will work...). Go layer one with the cake, layer two with pudding, layer three with whipped cream, and layer four with crushed candy... or fruit... here are some of my favorites: 1. Chocolate cake crumbles, then chocolate pudding, whipped cream, then crushed heath bars... repeat layering. 2. Vanilla cake crumbles, then vanilla pudding, then whipped cream, then strawberries crushed up... repeat layers. For thanksgiving, you could do: 1. Carrot cake crumbles, cheesecake pudding (Jello brand puts it out....), Whipped cream, and white chocolate chips.... or 2. Vanilla cake crumbles, Pumpkin Spice pudding, whipped cream and a bit of nutmeg sprinkled on top.... etc. I love these because they don't require a ton of work, are super delicious, and feed a lot of people.... everyone who tries these loves them!
