Dirt Cake is fun to serve at family gatherings, or to give as a gift. I've also taken it to church dinners. It not only tastes good but is unique.

My youngest son of 5, age 26, still loves Dirt Cake! He called me yesterday from the grocery store & asked what he needed to make Dirt Cake, then brought me the ingredients to make it for him. Love to please my sons with their favorite things :)
