For 16 “plants” (16 plastic cups that fit into 16 4-inch pots)
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, room temperature
2 1/2 cups milk
2 boxes of vanilla instant pudding (2.8 oz. each)
1 teaspoon orange/lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups heavy cream, whipped with 2 tablespoons of sugar to between soft and firm peaks
2 boxes (16 oz. each) oreo* style cookies
16 sprigs of mint or any herb/edible flowers you have
16 plants tags
gummy mice (I put those at the bottoms of each cup, hidden by cookie crumbs)
To prepare the pudding: In a mixer bowl, beat the cream cheese until it's smooth, then add milk, pudding powder, lemon zest, vanilla and mix. Pour the mix into a bowl and put it in the fridge to firm it up a bit. Then, gently fold the whipped cream with the chilled pudding.
Grind the cookies in a food processor until finely crumbled and look like dirt.
Assemble the cakes: Place a layer of the cookie mix in the bottom of the cup, add a few spoonfuls of the pudding cream, and then another layer of cookie crumbs. Repeat with the other cups.
Chill for a few hours. Decorate with gummy worms, herbs and/or flowers.
