I think the correct winner was chosen. Believe it or not, this Spaghetti & Meatball cake was made by a fourth grade boy. I originally thought his dad did it - you should have seen this kid's iPhone Halloween costume. It was like Steve Jobs made it himself.
But 4th grade Pastry Chef Michael and his dad generously agreed to let us post this photo and info on how he made the cake. Michael went to three different web sites to cobble together his own recipe. Here's what he used:
Cake base: Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic Yellow Cake (using eggs, water and vegetable oil)
Baked it in a pan using Crisco No-Stick Spray, and dusted with flour
Spaghetti: Made from Betty Crocker Whipped Butter Cream Frosting pushed through a potato ricer
Sauce: Solo Raspberry Cake & Pastry Filling
Meatballs: Entenmann’s Pop’ems, dipped in the "sauce"
Parmesan: Lindt white chocolate grated on top
