famous cupcake blogger and I'm starting to think it's time I beg her to teach me (some of) her ways. What you see in the picture above is clearly not a cupcake, but it started out as one!
banana cake balls. This time, I went for trifles instead of cake balls. I took the cheater route, using instant pudding and cool whip because I was short on time. While I'd like to try these with all homemade ingredients, these are just as good as is. Not wanting to mess with homemade cake? Cake mix would work just as well! These received rave reviews from friends, who claimed they were better than any cupcakes would've been! Cupcake fail for the win!
Zucchini Parmesan (one of my favorite meals!!)

1. Beat the cream cheese with the peanut butter until creamy. Beat in the powdered sugar and milk until well combined. Fold in 1 cup of cool whip.
2. Add cake crumbles to the bottom of each punch cup. Top with peanut butter mousse followed by a layer of chocolate pudding.
