Sleepover Cake Recipe

Since sleepover parties aren't really about sleeping, let your wide-awake party-goers decorate the cookie faces to match their own features, then tuck them into this sweet bed.


  • 1 baked 13- X 9- X 2-inch cake
  • 6 cups frosting (pink and light pink)
  • 5 Twinkies
  • 5 marshmallows
  • 5 vanilla or chocolate wafers
  • Gel icing (pink and green)
  • Mini jawbreakers
  • Pink and green Fruit by the Foot


Sleepover Cake Recipe - Step 1

1. Turn the cake upside down and lightly frost it. To make the bodies, cut the Twinkies in half lengthwise and place the tops cut-side down on the cake bed.

2. Frost a pink sheet on the top third of the cake, flatten the marshmallows for pillows and position the wafer faces on the pillows. (Curly hair and big smiles can be made with gel icing; mini jawbreakers are perfect for eyes.)

3. Frost a light-pink blanket over the Twinkies and the remaining cake. For flowers, use pink and green gel icing; for frills, cut Fruit by the Foot and ruffle it to make a snappy bed skirt.
