Amplifying Pastry recipe

Amplifying Pastry

Alyssa, in Splintered by A.G. Howard, is not a bit like Alice when she ventures to Wonderland. Alyssa wants to rid her family of the curse that Alice brought upon her family. But many things are the same, talking flowers, smiling cats, and amplifying pastries. I came across the idea for this little beauty while browsing through Ree Drummond's fantastic Pioneer Woman website. Thanks Ree! With a combination of vanilla pudding and Nutella spread, this tiny little cake brings all of the wonder and chaos of the original tale, without amplifying your waistline.


One pre-baked Angel Food Cake loaf (store bought or homemade)
8 oz container Cool Whip, thawed
2 T vanilla pudding

Slice the cake lengthwise down the middle. Cut the pieces into cubes. Slice each cube in half or thirds, depending on how many layers you would like your cake to have. 
Spread Nutella in between each layer. Stack the layers on top of each other and place them on a dish. Freeze the cakes for thirty minutes to set the Nutella.
Mix the cool whip together with the vanilla pudding. Spread the cool whip frosting on all sides of each small cake. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (after eating one, just to see if it tastes ok). Remove from the refrigerator ten minutes before serving.  

*Low calorie suggestions:
Use fat free Cool Whip and sugar free vanilla pudding. Substitute the Nutella with your favorite low calorie spread or jam.
