my son would love this. he's always wanting to make volcano's outside. I just have to say though, that their cake looked pretty dry! I hope when I try it, that the cake turns out moist. I hate dry cake!

This turned out better than i had hope for. I used two cake mixes, froze the cakes to make it easier to frost and put together. Used vanilla pudding with food coloring for the lava, red,orange & yellow.
