This is not a one pot meal post.
I repeat: Do not get out your crock pot expecting to use it after reading this post.
Rather, this is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time: It's a crock pot of chili made entirely out of cake!
Tommy_Mommy made this Crock Pot Chili Cake for a friendly dessert bake-off at work. The bake-off coincided with the annual work chili cook-off, so she combined the two concepts and made a cake that looked like chili—brilliant!
The "crock pot" is Devil's food chocolate cake frosted with vanilla butter-cream and covered in marshmallow fondant. The details (handles, knob, and cheese) are also fondant. The "chili" is chocolate frosting with Boston Baked Beans candy-coated peanuts and Reese's Pieces Dark.
This post is making me hungry on so many levels.
