This is an Excellent cake! I get requests from my co-workers all the time! One of the great things about this cake is that it can be inter-changeable. You can be creative and use whatever flavor cake mix you like, and you can change the flavor of the filling. You can also make this in a 9x13 pan, mini loaf pans, or mini muffin pans (my new personal favorite!) Try this cake and your kids will love it! It is also a great cake for parties or get togethers. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. I listed the ingredients from a Duncan Hines cake mix, so you will need to follow the directions on which ever cake mix you use.
  2. Mix well,then pour batter into wax paper lined 9x13 pan. Then bake, let cool and remove from pan.
  3. Slice lengthwise with thread or knife. Spread filling between layers and sprinkle top with powdered sugar.
  4. Filling directions: Combine flour and water, cook until thick, cool in refrigerator, combine sugar,margarine,shortening and vanilla. Beat until thick and fluffy. Add cooled mixture; Beat again until fluffy and spread filling between layers. If it looks curdled, you need to beat it a little longer.
  5. Like I told you, you can make them into little loaf pans or mini muffin pans. Use a pastry bag to pipe the filling into the cakes.
  6. You could be creative and add cocoa or strawberry jelly to the filling.
  7. I try and sprinkle the powdered sugar on them just before I serve them as the sugar absorbs into the cake over a short period of time. You can refrigerate them (thats the way I like them, or frozen) but they are fine left out on the counter for a day or so.
  8. I am just guessing on the servings, it all depends on the pans you use. I think I get between 25-35 mini muffins out of 1 cake mix,1 dozen mini loafs and I am just approximating on the 20 slices in a 9x13. Also, to be honest, I am not sure the amount of time it takes to make them. The baking time is also a guess depending on which size pans you use. I make the filling while the cakes are cooking.

We didn't care for this much. It was kind of bland and didn't really taste like a Twinkie at all.

I chose to make a two-layer round cake instead. Very good!
