Directions:
Cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar and softened butter. Mix 3 1/2 cups milk and instant pudding for 2 minutes and add 12 oz. Cool Whip. Add liquid mixture to creamed mixture. Place Oreo cookies in large ziploc bag and crush to desired "dirt" texture with rolling pin. Put 1 1/2 inches of cookie crumbs on the bottom of the sandpail or flower pot (lined with aluminum foil) and layer the pudding mixture and crumbs. End with pudding mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Just before serving, add one more inch of cookie crumbs and decorate with gummi worms. If you're using a flower pot, poke a few silk flowers-or real flowers with stems covered in foil-into the cake. (Large colored Gerbera daisies look best!) Serve with a colorful plastic trowel.
