Sand Cake

1 three-quart plastic sand bucket or 3 one-quart sand buckets and shovels
1/2 cup butter (one stick)
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
12 ounces frozen whipped topping
3 1/2 cups milk
2 3/4-ounce packages instant vanilla pudding (other flavors may be used)
1 20-ounce package vanilla wafers, crushed
Beach Bears, Gummy Worms, and/or Gummy Sharks for garnish (optional)

Using soapy water, wash sand buckets and shovels, rinse them and
dry them, then set them aside. On a microwave safe dish, place
butter. Place in microwave on defrost (or 30% power) for 1 minute.
Put butter in large mixing bowl. Repeat softening process with
cream cheese and add to mixing bowl. (Note: you can also place
butter, cream cheese, and whipped topping on the counter for 1 hour
to soften them.)

Mix butter and cream cheese together. Uncover frozen whipped
topping and place in microwave on defrost (or 30% power) for 1 to
2 minutes. In a medium-size bowl, add milk. Sprinkle pudding over
milk and whip or beat until thickened, about 1 minute. Add pudding
and whipped topping to the cream cheese mixture and mix until smooth
using a wooden spoon or electric mixer. In a food processor,
process vanilla wafers until they form a fine even crumb. Or place
wafers in a plastic bag and roll them, using a rolling pin, until
you have completely broken them up.

In the buckets, place a layer of crushed vanilla wafers, then a
layer of the cream cheese-pudding mixture. Keep layer until full
and end with a layer of crushed wafers. Cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate several hours. Before serving, decorate with Beach
Bears, Gummy Worms, or Sharks if desired. Use shovel to serve.
Serves 8-10 people.
