1 package (16 oz) poundcake mix (although any type of cake you like will really work)
1/4 cup green liquid food coloring
40 12" wooden skewers cut in half
2/3 cup flour
1 package (18 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 16 oz bag confectioners sugar
3 egg whites
various colors of liquid food coloring
1 can (16 oz) chocolate frosting
1 package (9 oz) chocolate wafer cookies, finely crushed
16 small (3" wide 2 1/2" tall) new terra cotta or glazed ceramic flowerpots
Fill a 8" square pan with 1/2" water and 1/4 cup green food coloring.
Add skewers, rolling occasionally with fork, until dyed completely.
With tongs, set skewers onto paper towels to dry (about 45 minutes)
Next you should prep your cookies.
In a bowl, knead flour into sugar cookie dough until throughly combined.
Roll into a ball, place on a lightly floured waxed paper, flatten slightly, cover with another sheet of waxed paper, and then roll out dough to about 1/4" thick.
Transfer waxed paper to a baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350*
Line the pots each with 1 piece of foil large enough to overhang the sides sightly. Butter and flour each pot.
Prepare cake mix according to package directions and fill each pot with 1/3 cup batter.
