I simplified this recipe.....big time! Here's what you do!
Get a casserole dish, make a box of Devils food cake, just like it says on the box. Remember to not fill the casserole dish, just a quarter to 1/3 of it should be cake. Cook until knife test comes out clean. About 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool.
Make a box of Chocolate pudding, pour over the cake once its cooled down
Get a tub of Cool Whip, spread that over the pudding. Then make the rose petals (you can also make these ahead of time!)
10 rose petals
2 egg whites
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Whipped cream, for serving
Candied rose petals:
Heat your oven to 200 degrees F.
Brush petals in egg whites, remove excess white and dredge in granulated sugar. Place petals on a sheet tray and insert into the oven. Turn the oven off and allow them to crisp but not color. Break into pieces reserving the best looking ones for garnish.
Place fresh whipped cream on top of the devil's food cake covered with chocolate pudding; then garnish with candied rose petals.
so easy and it looks so amazing! Just break the rose petals up into pieces and place over the top of the cake...or you can even leave them whole. Yes they are very edible and taste great!! A crunchy and chewy texture just adds to the already amazing dessert!
