My stepkids and I spend a lot of time together, and one of the ways we do that is by cooking together. I decided to make this for my son's 8th birthday instead of the traditional birthday cake. There's a lot of kids in the family so I figured it would be a welcome change. We had so much fun making this. My 12 year old was on biscuit cutting duty, and my 10 and 8 year old were on sugaring and layering duty. It was fun and easy for all of us to make, and turned out pretty good too! I only ended up using 2 tubes of biscuits (where I live they come in 16 oz cans) and I was using a smaller bundt than usual. It turned out perfect and I don't think the sugar would have coated all three tubes it just coated the 2 perfectly (I did sub margarine for butter though simply because I didn't have any). I baked it for 35 minutes and nothing was raw, the top was kind of crunchy and I liked that. The kids thought it was good but after a day of pizza and birthday treats they were a bit burned out by the sweet processed taste of this treat. I'm not sure if we will make this again, making a cake myself would've been cheaper IMO, though I'm sure the variations are endless with the different kinds of biscuits (how about blueberry biscuits with blueberry syrup, or better yet, homemade biscuits) but if one of my kids asks for it I will probably do it just for them.
