To kick off the fun I have two special treats for you today.

For another special treat I have a recipe for you straight from the pages of Hometown Christmas.  Enjoy!

Snowball Cake

18-1/4 oz. devil's food cake mix
8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
1 egg
2 T. sugar
3.4 oz. pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. milk
2 c. frozen whipped topping, thawed
7 oz. pkg flaked coconut

Lightly spray an oven-proof 2-1/2 quart round bowl with non-stick vegetable spray.  Prepare cake mix as directed on package; pour batter into prepared bowl.  In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese, egg and sugar until well blended; spoon into center of batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for one hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center tests clean.  Cool in bowl 10 minutes.  Loosen cake from bowl with a knife; turn out onto a wire rack.  Cool cake completely; place on a serving plate.  In another bowl, whisk together dry pudding mix, powdered sugar and milk for 2 minutes.  Stir in whipped topping.  Frost cake with pudding mixture; sprinkle with coconut.  Keep refrigerated until serving time.  Serves 16.
