My oldest daughter, age 24. called me from her apartment and asked what I was doing.
“I’m making a dump cake from a recipe I saw on Tik Tok,” I said.
She paused. “I have a lot of problems with that sentence, Mom. For one thing, DUMP CAKE?! And remember, we’ve talked about how parents aren’t supposed to get on apps like Tik Tok or Snapchat. You guys already ruined Facebook.”
I don’t deny the truth of any of this. Facebook has become decidedly uncool. I like it that way.
I told her about this Tik Tok video that came up on my Certified Uncool Facebook. “DON’T MIX IT!”
“So I’m just dumping in a bunch of ingredients and then not mixing them, ” I explained.
“That sounds really suspicious, Mom,” she said.
I layered: Crushed graham crackers, Cream cheese, Cherry Pie filling, White cake mix, and 1 1/2 stick of butter (sliced thin).
(“I really think you should mix it,” my daughter said. “But the recipe said not to, ” I countered.)
You bake it at 350 for 45 minutes.
It came out okay, but it didn’t taste as good as it had looked in the video.
Oh well. I’m off to wreck Snapchat for everyone now….
