It's Foodie Friday at Gollum's!
Don't forget next week's "Cinco de Mayo" celebration.
For this week's offering, I gussied up another store-bought cake from Publix.
First, I cut it in half.
I placed the top part on waxed paper for safekeeping.
I opened a jar of Smucker's chocolate sauce and "fluffed" two tubs of Cool Whip Extra creamy.
I lined the edges of a cake plate with more waxed paper (cut with scissors and just put the paper along the very, very edges of the cake for easy removal). Next, I spread chocolate sauce on the bottom layer.
A generous helping of Cool Whip came next.
I put the layers together and covered the whole cake with Cool Whip.
Using a carrot peeler, I shaved dark chocolate onto the surface.
You can use any kind of chocolate. I used Lindt.
