Cake Fluff

Remember the post about my daughter's Tangled/Disney princess birthday party? If you don't, check it out here.

When I made her awesome...if I do say so myself...tower cake I had a lot of leftover, partially frosted cupcakes from the tower. Rather than frost them as usual before eating I thought I'd take all of the leftover cupcakes and create another delicious treat instead.

This dessert can be made with leftover cupcakes, cake or you can bake up some cake especially for this purpose. Enjoy!


Cake Fluff
6 chocolate-chocolate chip cupcakes (from Tangled tower cake)
   -or- 6 cupcakes, un-frosted, of your choosing
1- 8 oz container Cool Whip or equivalent of homemade whipped cream

Crumble cake into pieces either by hand or with a fork. If there is frosting on the cakes, that is fine. Just leave it on and it will mix into the finished dessert as well.

In a large bowl, fold crumbled cake into Cool Whip until evenly combined.

It's that simple! Enjoy this easy, delicious treat with your next cake leftovers and I guarantee it will be gone in no time.

Let me start off by telling you a little bit about Shabby Apple.


Shabby Apple was started  "because we saw a need in women’s fashion that was not being met. A need to make women feel feminine and beautiful for what they wear, not what they bare. We offer flirty, stylish dresses a woman can wear just as comfortably in the office, at a family dinner, or on a date. Shabby Apple is a fashion company for women, by women, and of women." (Shabby Apple)


Because Shabby Apple is so devoted to women, they donate 5% of their net sales to helping women around the world work their way out of poverty through their partnership with Accion, a non-profit organization.

Shabby Apple offers a great line of products including dresses, skirts, blouses, maternity, kids and home decor.
