Banana Split Cake

by no means is this a cooking blog....
but occasionally things work out for me in the kitchen, and I like to share with you.
Because if you feed people yummy food, they are often more inclined to let you sew.....

introducing...  Banana Split Cake

you will need:
brownie mix + whatever it calls for,
white cake mix + whatever it calls for,
box of strawberry jello, 
maraschino cherries,
chocolate fudge,
sliced strawberries,
whipped cream

suggested:  small glass dishes for each serving

First, make your brownies as directed.  
Then mix up your white cake mix and split it approximately in half into 2 bowls.  
Put the box of strawberry jello in one.  Bake them.

When they are cool, use a biscuit cutter to cut out small round pieces of each cake/brownie.

I found these mini trifle dishes at walmart for $1.97 each.  They are about 2.5 inches deep.  Very cute.

Slice your bananas into each dish.

Then put your brownie round on top.

Add some strawberries.  Then you can claim your dessert is healthy.

Add a layer of chopped maraschino cherries and the strawberry cake.

Then add the white cake.

On top of that, add a healthy layer of chocolate fudge, some whipped cream and a cherry.
