In fact, there are only four ingredients required – five, if you make your own crust. And, one of the ingredients involved is Cool Whip, which I hear many foodies don’t even consider to be real food. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have ever posted about this pie. I would have been too worried about damaging any reputation I might have as a “legitimate” foodie. After all, a five year-old could whip this puppy up, so you certainly don’t need me to tell you how to do it. ” – Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy

If you weigh all your ingredients and follow my directions though, you should be well ahead of most and have great success with these little guys.” – Caitlin Wilson

32. Pink Lemonade Ombre Cake Recipe

“The challenge is an ombre cake. That’s cool, I’ve not made one of those before. Hmmmm, let’s make the cake a pink lemonade cake, because I’ve not made one of those before either. Icing? Yes I need to ice it. Let’s pipe flower rose thingies, because I’ve never piped icing onto a cake before. Oh hang on, let’s make the iced rose thingies dual coloured, because the YouTube video (obviously a pro that has made rose thingies many times before) makes it look like a breeze, and I’m an idiot.” – Belly Rumbles
