Ah, childhood with all its sweet rewards. Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Ring Dings, Ho Hos, Yodels and so many more of these boxed confections litter many memories of being a kid.

But it's hard to like them as an adult. Maybe it's the artificial taste, or the fact that they've been sitting on the shelf for who knows how long. And then there are those super-powered preservatives (watch this Twinkie outlast a tomato). But there's a better way to get your snack cake fix.

Try homemade versions that are 10 times better than any kind you could buy. And since the company that makes these treats, Hostess, is in the midst of bankruptcy, we might have to learn how to make these treats ourselves anyway. See all the great recipes we've rounded up from around the web in the slideshow below.

What was your favorite snack cake as a kid (or adult)? Let us know in the comments.
