Flowerpot Dirt Cake

 Flowerpot Dirt Cake
Every year I host a luncheon to welcome spring. I like to surprise my friends and leave them with a special memory. This delicious cake does the trick. Sometimes people are a little hesitant because they don't think you can really eat out of a clay flowerpot, but once I explain that the pot is new, clean and lined with foil, they like the idea and dig right in!—Mary Anne McWhirter, Pearland,
