And use up some jam you have that you like enough but maybe don't love. I realized I have way too much blueberry jam. way too much. I'm not the biggest fan of blueberries to begin with, and this winter has really worn me out on the jam as well.
Back to the dessert. Somehow, I managed to dump an entire hot pan of cupcakes over into the oven while I was trying to take them out. Not good. One even managed to roll to the very back of the oven requiring tongs and oven mitts and a prayer to get it out without burning myself. A whole dozen cakes scrunched up beyond repair. No problem.
Step one: Whip up some instant vanilla pudding.
Step two: Layer it with the offending jam and crumbled cake in some leftover clear plastic cups.
Step three: Feed it to the husband and brother who will eat anything as long as it's presented nicely.
Tada! cupcakes resurrected and half a jar less of jam in my fridge.
Plus, I get to eat all the leftover pudding.
