My daughter and I have been fascinated with dirt cakes- you know, cake crumbs made to look like dirt, sand most of the time placed inside a pot and topped with eatable plant.
Also, I had to mention that it's been a long, long time that I had not posted any recipe here, though I had shared some photos of my kitchen creations at Instagram. I'd love it if you can pay my IG account a visit and follow my epicurean gallery.
Going back to the business with dirt cakes. there are many variations to making a dirt cake, so it's called. My daughter who learned her way out in our kitchen with my supervision showed how easy it was to make dirt out of Lemon Square's Inipit Chocolate Cake.
To make this more interesting, the crumbly texture of the delectable Inipit Cake dirt, we used it as a base for ice cream cake. There is really #NoLimitwithInipit. Danica again proved that it's "sarap maging kid with Inipit," cause there are a lot you can do with Inipit to turn it to a different dessert or snack, and doing it with fun.
