Sunflower Twinkie Cake

I grew up in a family where I was the youngest of 8 children.  Our family had a tradition of having a birthday cake each year.  Each of us looked forward to our birthday cake as our birthday came near.  As the children got older, we started making the birthday cakes for our siblings and even our parents.  My mother loved plants and flowers of any kind. Her birthday was in September and the Sunflowers were in full bloom at her birthday time.  One of my nieces reminded me that I had made this cake for my mother’s 75th birthday.  My mother absolutely loved it (and so did her grandchildren and great-grandchildren).  We are never too old or too young for a birthday cake and the love of being remembered on our birthday!

Ingredients
Cake
  • 1 - 8" round chocolate cake ( I used a box)
Chocolate Frosting:
  • 3 cups powered sugar
  • 1 cube butter softened

Instructions
Cake
  1. After making and cooling my cake, I took a pizza pan and covered it with aluminum foil.
  2. Place cake in the center of the pan and frost. I usually put wax paper pieces just barely under the cake so that it won't get on the pan or foil.
  3. Then put kisses all over the top of the cake so that the top is covered.
  4. Place Twinkies around the outside of the cake.
Frosting:
  1. Mix butter with a hand mixer.
  2. Add powdered sugar, cocoa, milk and almond extract.
  3. Mix until creamy.
