I had so much fun making this cake. I really like how the photographs came out, too. Some of my photos I think turn out looking just okay, but I think these look pretty great. I believe I have the potential to make any photo look really great, but sometimes I get a little lazy and just photograph cookies on the baking sheet or something like that. Framing the shot, putting in some colored linens, and sprinkling a few very carefully placed crumbs makes all the difference.
Back to this cake though. It’s sincerely amazing. I hadn’t had a Ho-Ho in a while, and I used to love those when I was a kid, but I had one before making this cake out of curiosity of what it would taste like many years later. Well, it didn’t taste nearly as great as I thought it would, but still not too shabby. However, this cake tastes a lot like it, but even better. So if Ho-Hos gross you out, and honestly I don’t blame you (the ingredients list is so long), I still think you would like this cake.
The key ingredient that makes it taste like a Ho-Ho is the marshmallow fluff. I wouldn’t have thought of this myself, which is why we have Pinterest. However, it really blew me away. I actually don’t even like fluff, but it just adds a teeny bit of flavor and changes the consistency of the frosting to the perfect Ho-Ho filling texture. It’s not as crazy sticky as fluff is by itself though. Believe me, that’s one of the things I hate about fluff.
So whether you like Ho-Hos or not, I think you’ll love this cake! Especially fellow chocoholics. Plus, it’s sure to impress a crowd! Happy baking!
