    Oh, that looks delicious! and I love that you (maybe) took advantage of the Twinkie shortage on eBay!

      Thank you! People got a little silly about the Hostess shortage. I wonder if they all felt silly a few months later. All I can say is that it maybe paid for most of Christmas that year. heehee

  2. Love your sense of entrepreneurship with the ebay selling of twinkies.

    just how did you insert the creme filling for this cake? it looks so good!

      Hi CC – Haha, we kind of got the idea on the spot. They were selling the boxes of Hostess stuff for $1 and we happened to be there when the last truck came in. We figured we could make a few bucks since they were only $1 a box – we were right!

      For the cake, I cut holes in the bottom, about every few inches and then carefully hallowed out a little tunnel and connected the holes. I did not make my holes big enough though! It was hard to judge/tell how big they were but I’d definitely make it bigger next time. OR I’d just cut out a tunnel, fill it, and then carefully put some cake back on top. No one will see the bottom anyway, really. I must try again!
