Let it cool for about 5 minutes and then serve warm with vanilla ice cream. This yummy dump cake is just as good leftover warmed up in the microwave! In fact, the cake topping gets crispier the longer it sits, so I think it’s even better the next day (if you’re lucky enough to have any left).

Behind The Scenes

Here’s a little peak of my “photo shoot”. I do some pretty goofy things to get decent enough photos. As long as you have enough natural lighting from a nearby window, you’d be amazed at what an iPhone can capture.

The faux wood vinyl paper was part of this 3 pack that I found here. The subway tile backdrop was also purchased on Amazon. My hubby cut it in half to fit that corner of the kitchen. I just tape it up, and voila! Our kitchen is transformed.
