Twinkie Cake

by Laura

Today’s Twinkie cake recipe is a quick and easy dessert you can make in no time.  It is easy enough for the kids make.  This Twinkie cake dessert is a breeze to put together thanks to twinkies, instant pudding, and cool whip.  This is one my family just LOVES to eat.  They are always asking for seconds.  They have had twinkies with other fillings in them recently that would also be fun to use.

I also have a giveaway starting today that you must check out.  It could help you with one of your New Year’s resolutions!

I am so allergic to Pineapple, that I usually and automatically delete anything that contains that fruit. Is there anything that could be successfully exchanged for pineapple? thanks.
