Atomic Cake

For LBK's birthday, he requested an Atomic Cake.  Apparently it's a Southside specialty.  I hadn't heard of it until earlier this year.  It's a 3 layer cake, one each of banana, chocolate and yellow cake, filled with pudding or ppastry cream, bananas, strawberries and whipped cream, then topped with more whipped cream.  It makes a huge cake.  I used Baking From My Home to Yours for the banana cake, the Fastest Fudge Cake for the chocolate layer, and got lazy and used a box mix for the yellow cake.  I had a box of chocolate pudding so I used that for both layers along with sliced strawberries and bananas.  We had two slices for dessert and I made him take the rest to work the next day where the boys promptly polished it off.

Your cake looks so much better than the ones at Weber's Bakery! Nicely done.
