Resurrection Tomb Cake

"Christ has risen--He has risen indeed!"

Resurrection Tomb Cake
aka Wine Bundt Cake
Very Easy!

1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1 Cup Sherry wine
3/4 Cup vegetable oil

Powdered sugar for topping only

Mix all ingredients together and beat on high for 5 minutes.  Pour into greased bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.  

Tomb Cake Instructions:
Once cooled, empty cake from bundt pan and cut in half to form tomb shape.  Place upright onto platter and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Use cookies for the stones and Resurrection Set characters. (Slice extra cake from the other half of the cake and place on a separate plate to serve with the Resurrection Tomb Cake.}
Extra Note: Just for fun you can also use the same technique with the bundt pan, using Cocoa Krispies, made according to the recipe on the box.  We made this one on Good Friday and sealed the tomb with a cookie stone until time to eat on Easter Sunday! {Be sure to cover with plastic wrap}
