Does anyone know how to make those I believe it's meatloaf cake & cover it with mash potatoes? Decorate it like a real cake... Maybe puree some squash & decorate it to look like a carrot cake with little carrots on it considering it's also easter weekend...?
I was hoping to serve that for dinner for my dh birthday on Saturday & for dessert serve spaghetti & meatball cupcakes seen here on cake central...
I just thought of it today & thought it would be a fun idea for my dh & my little girls...
However I never made one of these cakes before & was hoping someone here can help me...
Is there any chance this could be made early in the day however serve it for dinner?

Thank you all for your help....

Sure. Just use your favorite meatloaf recipe, pack it into cake rounds and bake.
When done, turn out onto a plate big enough to allow room for mashed potato 'icing'. Cover like you would a cake using dry mashed potatos. If you have squash or carrots to puree fine, if not use baby foodicon_smile.gif It will be very, very soft (watery) you probably will need to thicken it up w/something......flour? I don't know but it would effect the taste; maybe thicken it w/a paste of flour, cornstarch and squash or carrots like one would make gravy? I never did that part.
As for making it in advance, if you have a Microwave oven maybe you could warm up each cut piece in that after 'presenting' the whole meatloaf cake? Or make it early then re-warm in oven while making something else to go w/the dinner? That might brown the potato icing though icon_sad.gif if you keep the temp low and give it more time it might work.
