This was a Pail of Sand Cake made for my little boy Josiah when he turned 3 years old. Our new pool was ready just in time and my husband had made a huge sand area beside it for the children to play in. This cake was perfect for our Josiah’s pool party!
I used 3 new,(and clean!), pails with their shovels for serving. The cake is super easy to assemble, just cut any flavor cake into small pieces and layer with pudding and whipped topping. I used crushed vanilla cookies for sand and chocolate seashells for the top… so simple and cute! This cake was a hit, many guests thought it was a just a decoration. Imagine their surprise when we dished it out, and it was delicious!
Please note that this actual cake is entirely gluten free, (I used gluten free cake mix, cookies, and pudding). However, you can use any flavor cake, cookies, and pudding… the varieties are endless!
