Pay Dirt Cake Tips
How else can you serve dirt cake?
You can serve dirt cake in so many fun ways! It's beautiful in a glass trifle bowl, but if you really want to play up the dirt theme, consider serving in a clean, enamel-coated flower pot—so fun! Or split this recipe between 10 mini flower pots for individual-size servings.
What else can you add to dirt cake?
The best part about this recipe is the countless things you can add to dirt cake to make it even more special. A classic is by popping in a few gummy worms as if they're poking out from the dirt. Or you could pipe on a few blips of orange frosting topped with green licorice to resemble carrots, like in our carrot garden ice cream dessert
. Or if you're making this around Halloween, place a few pumpkin candies on top to resemble a pumpkin patch. Who doesn't love fun food
Can you substitute different cookies or pudding flavors?
You can absolutely substitute different cookies or pudding flavors in this recipe. Try using Golden Oreos and lemon pudding for a light and lemony twist. Or try a homemade coffee pudding
and chocolate Oreos for a mocha-flavored treat. Pistachio pudding would be delicious here, as well. There are almost endless dirt cake flavor combinations you could try! Research contributed by Rachel Seis, Taste of Home Senior Editor
