    Maddison makes a Ho Ho cake but not sure if the real Ho Ho's are in it. I posted a request the other day for an Ice-Cream Bar cake. It is excellent ~ more like a frozen cake or dessert.

          I used to have the recipe using the ho ho cakes but I can't find it. I know it involved putting the cakes (I used Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls) in the bottom of the pan and covering with pudding. If I see the recipe, I would recognize it. Does anyone have a recipe to post?

          Thought for the day: Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away!

            I don't know if this is something you are looking for, but it's T&T & DH loves it!

            Black Forest Trifle

            1 package (box) Swiss Rolls (you'll need a few more, so buy 2 boxes)
            2 C. Cool Whip
            2 packages (4 servings each) vanilla instant pie filling
            2 C. milk
            1/8 t. vanilla
            1 21 ounce can cherry pie filling

            Reserve two chocolate rolls for garnish. Cut each of the remaining cake rolls lengthwise if half. Arrange enough cut cake rolls vertically cut side out around trifle bowl. Coarsely chop remaining cut cake rolls (this is where I needed more). Prepare pudding using only two cups milk & vanilla extract. Reserve 1/4 c. Cool Whip for garnish, fold remaining into pudding. Spoon half of the pudding into trifle bowl; add chopped cake rolls, then half of the cherry pie filling. Top with remaining pudding, make an indention in center and spoon the rest of the cherry filling. Top that with the remaining Cool Whip. Slice the last two cake rolls into rounds & set around on the top. Refrigerate two hours.
