So this week Haden and I walked to the store for some carrots I needed for dinner. He asked if he could bring a few pesos to buy a treat. As we were walking along and he was thinking about his treat, he said he wanted a Mamut cake for his birthday. I was a little confused, so he explains this is his favorite sweet treat at the tienda. I tell him I have no idea what it is and need to take a look before I can promise anything. After two tiendas we find carrots and mamut, which is what we called Moon Pies when I was growing up. A round cookie sandwich with marshmallow filling, covered in chocolate. When we got home I typed "Moon Pie" into the Pinterest search engine and there were actually several recipes for homemade moon pies. Figuring out how to modify the recipe to make it the size of a cake was pretty easy. It turned out very yummy, very sweet, but very yummy.
