This cake is a joke, a bit of whimsy to lighten up any party. It is really a
dessert. You may substitute vanilla pudding for the chocolate if you want and use
up to 20 ounces of Oreo cookies. Use a clean new plastic flower pot or take the
precaution of lining a new clay pot with foil and wrap the stems of live flowers
if you use them in order to prevent any toxins from entering the dessert.

mixture and topping with the remaining crumbs.
