Good dessert but the mint kinda ruins the taste, if you're like me and don't enjoy anything minty, I'd say cut out the plant part, good besides that.

I used this dessert as a prank on my mom, I started eating this at the dinner table and she could've SWORN I was eating soil, funniest thing I've ever done since the meatloaf cake, LOL! Thanks for sharing this "Dirt" dessert.

This is one of the cutest things I've ever made, love the idea and everything about it!

Meera Fuell

Loved the idea at first but in the end it's a bit sandy tasting, I'd recommend the "Mini cheesecakes" recipe instead.


If you love oreos and whipped cream, this is the PERFECT dessert for a cookie lover like yourself! I'm amazed with how well everything goes together and the flower pots make this whole thing look fancy! 5 stars from me.

I helped my daughter make a few of these dirt cakes for her class and everyone enjoyed it more than any cupcake, really artsy recipe.

I added some gummy worms to this dish and my kids are in love with it! Very fun to make this, I recommend making this dirt cake with your kids if you have any.

Elianna Gehlen

Who knew something that would be looked at and thought to be inedible, would be edible! Very cool idea, I'll be making this often.

Sharing this with all my friends for sure, this is super adorable!!

Whitney Oalmann

Fun recipe but I didn't buy flower pots for it, too expensive to get for just a simple cake.


When I first saw this, I wasn't sure it'd even taste good because it's all just too simple, I was proven wrong after trying this, it's actually super easy to make and enjoyable!!


LOL! I love this! Easy and delicious!
