Hostess snowballs, loves them. Apparently they are going to stop making them so he buys them whenever he sees them. Maybe this is where I get my instinctive "need" to buy any limited edition candy/cookie/cereal that I happen upon. Something to think about.
I saw this recipe a few months ago on Sprinkle Bakes and I knew exactly who would appreciate it most. I was going to make a mini-version, as my mom always makes the birthday cakes. When I decided it was easier to make a full version and my mom decided that this would serve as the main and only birthday cake for my dad, the pressure was on.
To make things simple, I used a boxed cake mix. There was too much going on to try this with a cake from scratch.
I baked the cake in a 2.5 L Pyrex glass bowl for 60 minutes. I let it cool for ~10 minutes, ran a knife along the edge and turned the cake out onto a cake platter lined with parchment paper.
