Make dump cake. (if he likes fruit.)

 

dump, a can of cherry pie filling, a can of pinapple pieces, and a box of yellow cake mix over the fruit, dot it with a sitck of butter. Pop in the oven, check on it now and ty then to make sure butter has covered all the cake mix.

It’s pretty much a fruit crumble cake and so awesome. SO always asks for it on his birthday.

A dump cake covered in aluminum foil will like last through an appocolypse.

@MrsDulce:  I think cupcakes, or squares. Something that is transportable and doesn’t require a plate to eat it.

What about monkey bread?!

 

Mine isn’t a traditional monkey bread but it’s awesome. Grab a roll or two of pilsbury biscuits, cut them in fourths with kitchen shears, dip them in butter, roll in cinnamon and sugar, pile them in a glass pan, pour any extra butter and c&s on top, pop in the oven until they look done.

Then just pick apart.

How about Cake Cups?  Bake a sheet cake- whatever flavor DH likes.  Get your favorite frosting ( for extra jazzy ones spilt frosting into two bowl add some food coloring to each, for a more colorful look).  Get a set of short plastic cups (sometimes called V cups) and fill with layers of chunks of cakes, frosting, cake, frosting etc.  Finish with a layer of cake.  Sprinkle a little colored sugar on top to dress it up.  Cover with saran wrap maybe tie a ribbon around the top to dress it up.  Because you finish with cake, you can stack a few cups ontop of each other.  Toss them in a cooler on a bed of ice, and you should be good to go.  Super easy to serve, yummy to eat and should hold up in the heat.

I don’t see what’s wrong with cake? I grew up at the south with outdoor birthday parties galore and there was never a cake that melted or something.

Bakery cakes use more shortening which holds up better outside, homemade cakes are mainly butter, which melts a tad more. Either way, get a cooler and put the cake on top of it on ice.
