Food Friday

In celebration of Samuel’s and Aunt Babs’ birthday week, we are highlighting the cake Julie made for Samuel’s big day. It looked so cute and fun with the colorful candles on top. I wish I could have had a piece….maybe I will make one and celebrate on my own!

Grease a large tube or Bundt cake pan with 2 teaspoons of the oil. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the popped corn with the M&Ms and the peanuts and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, the remaining 1/4 cup vegetable oil, and the marshmallows over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. When melted, use oven mitts or pot holders to remove saucepan from heat and pour marshmallows over the popcorn mixture. Stir to combine.

Spoon mixture into the prepared cake pan. Using your hands or the back of a spoon, press firmly so that the mixture is compacted.

Cover with aluminum foil to keep moist. Let sit for about 3 to 4 hours, or until firm and set. To serve, invert the cake pan onto a large plate or platter. Shake gently to release the cake. Serve at room temperature.

Happy Food Friday and Happy Birthday!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
