Is this a cake or is it just a novelty dessert? It really depends on how you look at it really, for to me it is both.
This can be a fun project, for the kids, grandkids as well as a holiday or birthday cake. It is quite simple and it allows much imagination as to what you can add to it.
24 c. Popcorn, popped
1 c. Spiced gumdrops
1 1/2 c. Peanuts
1 large bag of mini marshmallows
1/2 c. Oil
1/2 c. Butter
Mix oil, butter and marshmallows in a large bowl, microwave at 20-30 second intervals. Stirring between each interval, until marshmallows are melted and butter and oil are mixed in nicely (it will still look a little oily).
Mix in the remaining ingredients. Press into a greased bundt or angel food pan. Leave in the pan at room temperature for an hour or until it is completely set. Invert cake onto a platter, slice and serve.
Chef's notes: For fun variations, use colored popcorn.
