Here's what you will need to make it:
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 ounces softened cream cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons of milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 pound cake
jam or jelly
knife (for cutting cake and spreading)
Here's what you have to do:
Check with a grown-up before you begin.
Wash your hands.
Mix 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter and 3 ounces of softened cream cheese in a bowl.
Slowly add 1 1/2 tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Add 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar.
Mix until it's smooth and spread-able.
Slice two pieces of pound cake 1/4 inch wide - (See, doesn't it look like a piece of white bread?)
Spread one slice with peanut butter frosting, the other with jam or jelly. (The ZOOMers used strawberry jam.)
Put the pieces of cake together like a pb & j sandwich.
Slice the cake in half, into triangles or rectangles (whichever looks more like a sandwich to you.)
Make sure you've got a big glass of milk handy before you dig in!
