Snowball Cake 1
This is a giant version of a classic hostess snowball cake.
I used a Zuccotto pan (shown below) to create a hollow dome for the cake filling. I used super rich Devil's food cake. It came out really moist and delicious.
The cake is filled with a creme made of shortening, margarine and confectioner's sugar. It was really, really sweet but the shortening gave it a really authentic texture.
I coated the outside of the snowball cake with marshmallow creme (fluff) and covered it with shredded coconut that I dyed pink to match the original cakes. I pressed the coconut into the cake to make sure it was really really covered.
The cake came out amazing and looked almost as good as it tasted. It was really neat to cut into the cake and be able to see all the layers.
Everyone who tried my homemade hostess cake said it tasted much better than the original snack cake.
