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, Texas

"I like to use chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. I make it during the Halloween party time so I make it a graveyard cake. Kids love it!!"

"I used Oreo pudding last Easter. I will make more this year because we ran out last year.

It was very entertaining to see the looks on people's faces when my son started eating out of the centerpiece:)
