    I checked the links and did a google search, and I still don't understand- what exactly is a bleeding armadillo cake?

    Have you ever seen the movie "Steel Magnolias"? They had a groom's cake that was an armadillo. A "bleedin armadilla" is just red devil's food cake in the shape of an armadillo. And when it is cut, it looks like it is bleeding due to the red devil's food cake. Here is a link to the cake that jessiquina posted http://www.cheftalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16156
