It is so easy it only takes three steps to decorate this cake!

What you will need:

  • Round cake, as large in diameter as desired, but only about 3-4″ thick
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate chips
  • Twinkies
  • A platter to decorate and serve the cake on

Step One:  Bake small round cake, frost with chocolate frosting

You can actually mix yellow frosting and frost each petal, but we preferred the more natural yellow color of the twinkie.
