Make this no bake Twinkie cake when you have a kids play date and plenty of them are going to show up. This cake starts with Twinkies that is true, but adds lots of fresh fruit to balance out the decadence of the Twinkie base. It results in a sweet, but also fresh, cake that kids will love. It is creamy and tender and has the flavors of banana and pineapple that most people enjoy. Then it is smothered in whipped cream. For kids, make the whipped cream by hand, from real cream. They can easily use the calories and the flavor against fruits like banana and pineapple is unbeatable.

Twinkies are an iconic American snack, made from a cake filled with cream. It rather emulates an éclair or sweet cannelloni. It was developed in the United States in the early 1930s and quickly became a very popular treat made by Hostess. Today, they remain a staple in the world of snack food, and can be purchased in almost every country around the world. There is something perfect about a simple vanilla cake filled with plain cream. And, although it is not a very healthy food choice, sometimes you just have to say, so what? And here, the Twinkie is well balanced against some really great foods. As the website creator and recipe blogger notes, though, if you do not want to use Twinkies, just use a vanilla cookie for the base. This will also taste great, and kids will love it just as well.

Be sure to really chill this dessert well both for flavor and cutting and serving purposes. It will be a great treat that all the kids will go for. Why not make it today? And hold a play date for every one tomorrow.
