How could Halloween candy chunks, loads of milk chocolate frosting and white cake hyper colorized with massive amounts of fun food coloring be anything but an acid trippy, party pleasing edible centerpiece! You already know its gonna be finger lickin’ good!
Who doesn’t love those two-bite size, Halloween time candies. They’re not-too-much and not-too-little. I like to call them candy barettes, like cigarettes.
Food coloring is something I’ve always enjoyed using, as much as possible as often as possible. Cake batter and food coloring were meant for each other. After all, we’re puttin’ the kitsch in kitchen here!

This big ol’ turkey-shaped cheese, cracker and salami platter is sure to sensationalize your big birdy dinner party !!! …
At last, my excuse to go on a cracker shopping spree at the supermarket. And how much do we seriously all love crackers … I KNOWWW !!! All the crackers of our lives have a story. I could find origin dates on all of them except Sociables. So for now we’ll have to wonder about those … but I can tell you when the rest of these salty, fatty flavor bombs first came out of the oven: Saltines in 1876, Triscuits in 1902, Cheez-Its in 1920, Ritz in 1934, Wheat Thins in 1947, and Chicken in a Biskit in 1964. This is delicious info! OK, now onto more important things …
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE A SNACKSGIVING GOBBLER PLATTER
Crackers – your choice, the more the merrier …
Cheese – I used a double wide block of cheddar cheese. Velveeta for the body!
Big stick of hard Gallo Salami
Nothing says DESSERT like a CHERPUMPLE!
It’s an original recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, and the most talked-about new dessert to come along in years.
Cherpumple is short for CHERry, PUMpkin and apPLE pie – the three pies each baked in a layer of cake. Cherry pie in white cake; a pumpkin pie in yellow cake, and apple pie in spice cake!
WHAT YOU NEED
Bravery … to even attempt to make and bake a such a a culinary creation sensation.
3 9″ round cake pans … BUT …10” cake pans work better I, frankly, finally broke down and replaced my cheapo 9” cake pans from the supermarket with bigger, better ones from the pro bake shop. Ooh la la I’m getting fancy !!! …
Sturdy cake plate
Vintage electric knife to cut it with (not really necessary but makes for good show)
1 8″ frozen pumpkin pie
1 8″ frozen apple pie
1 8″ frozen cherry pie
LET THE CEREAL FRYING BEGIN!
Fried cereal is a toasted sweet crunchy buttery snack treat – the latest original taste treat sensation from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen.
Kids, adults and senior citizens love fried cereal. It’s the new Chex Mix!
If you love your favorite cereals now – wait until you taste them fried in butter! Not deep-fried, more like sautéed. Frying cereal won’t make it soggy or turn to mush. Frying will make it beyond delicious!

I’ve baked pies in cakes, candy in cakes, Cheese Wiz and even Spam, experimenting in the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, so it’s high time I cross pollinate cookies and cake. I’m talking supermarket superstar cookies – Oreos, Nutter Butters, Chips Ahoy, Fudge Stripes and Circus Animals, of course. But before they meet up with the batter, they’re soaked overnight in half & half. Go ahead and use cream if you want to. I would’ve, but I didn’t want to kill you!
The sweet surprise of this kooky cake is that with all the added cream the finished frosted combo of cookies and cake turned out to be delicious, of course, but in a special cheesecakey kind of way.
2 pkgs Oreos
2 pkgs Nutter Butters
2 pkgs Chips Ahoy
2 pkgs Circus Animals
2 pkgs Fudge Stripes
