   This is a joke, a bit of whimsy to lighten up your next party. The cake is
   really a quick mix dessert made with Oreo cookies and soft squishy stuff.
   The trick is to capture everyone’s attention with an announcement of some
   sort, and as you are speaking, trowel out some of the dirt from the flower
   pot around the flowers and eat it. May be followed by a worm dug out of
   the “dirt”. You may substitute vanilla pudding for the chocolate if you
   want, and use up to 20 oz of Oreos. Please use a clean new plastic flower
   pot or take the precaution of lining a clay pot with foil and wrap the
   stems of live flowers if you use them in order to prevent any toxins from
   entering the dessert.
     Crush the cookies until they resemble potting soil.  Set aside.  
     Cream the butter or margarine, cream cheese, sugar  and vanilla until
   smooth and fluffy.  Set aside.  Combine the pudding mix and milk until
   well blended.  Then fold in the whipped topping.  Gently fold the cream
   cheese and pudding mixtures together.
     To put the “cake” together, layer one-third of the cookie crumbs
   followed by 1/2 of the pudding mixture, 1/3 of the crumbs, the rest of the
   pudding mixture and topping with the balance of the crumbs.   Refrigerate
   10-12 hours before serving.  Remove from refrigerator, decorate with
   flowers.  Serve by digging out portions with the trowel.  Serves 10 to 12.
