Lucky Charms Cake
Happy St Patrick’s day!
My husband and I love celebrating this holiday, creating easy St. Patrick’s day recipes and dancing Ceili and/or the Irish jig. Well, actually, I like the dancing he would rather grab a seat and have a Guinness beer.
However, I think I will get him more into the spirit of Irish dancing this year with a superb Lucky Charms Cake!
Here’s what you do. Grab a box of Vanilla or Butter cake mix from Miss Betty or Mr. Duncan. (totally about the semi homemade here). Add your oil, add your eggs, then split up into different bowls and create 5 colors. Your standard box of food coloring can create these colors.
These Wilton pans are the perfect size.
I love experimenting in the kitchen (and adore being a Chocolatier) and having a huge layer cake often goes to waste. If you go here, you will find these cake pans at just over 10 bucks. The cheapest price out there. However, you will use at least 1/2 of the ingredients you did before saving you $4 – $8 every single time you create something. You will make your money back in 1 or 2 uses. Total win!
Catch the rainbow y’all
After you have your batter divided into the cake pans ,pop into the oven. Although the box mix told me to bake at 350, I decided to turn it down to 315. It worked out great and was ready in less than 15 minutes. Less energy too!
Sift through your Lucky Charms and separate the marshmallows. I pulled out about 3/4 cup of marshmallows.
Perfect job for the kiddos!
It’s soooooo pretty from the outside!!
Thanks to Wilton for the cake pans that made it possible!
Its so pretty from the inside too!
I added about 6 drops of green coloring to vanilla frosting. And a drop of Peppermint Oil that I have in my kit here. Frosted in between each slice and slathered over the top. Then pressed in the marshmallows.
This cake is so silly!!
How many slices should I cut for you?
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
If you really want to add that gold (errrr . . . chocolate) to this fun cake.
Grab a bag of gold chocolate coins. These can be found year round at Hobby Lobby right by the register. Or you can buy them online. At Hobby Lobby, it comes in a small bag of about 8 for $1.29 or online you can get half a pound for a bit more $$. Comparison shop here.
Then cut some skewers in half, push the pointed end into the edge of the coin. Then place into the cake.
Now serve up with some smiles!
Can’t wait to hear about your adventures in St. Patrick’s Day baking.
