For those days you want more reasons to eat cake for breakfast. But more for days you admit that while you can bake that Funfetti Cake like a boss, you can’t frost it worth a sprinkle. So to that I say there can never be enough easy cereal frosting tips…or Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles!
An American family favorite since 1970, did you know that Fruity Pebbles just got even better by adding marshmallows? I didn’t…and I have to admit it does pass the cereal aisle Mom check. Meaning there’s: no-high-fructose-corn syrup, 0g Trans Fat, naturally cholesterol free, and a good (if not excellent) source of vitamins.
So on a recent trip to Walmart I got giggly and let this childhood favorite fall into the cart. With my daughter’s birthday coming up this month, I knew I’d need an easy cake frosting escape. Plus…who doesn’t love more reasons to have cake for breakfast? Because I totally I felt the urge to do a birthday cake test run coming on!
We can’t tote an easy cereal frosting tip and not savour the mom-saving FunFetti pre-mix as well. I used a whole egg recipe and got to stirring. Then buttered up two non-stick 8″ round cake pans and preheated my oven to 350° degrees.
Poured evenly (half-way) into both pans. The cakes baked for a half hour. After being set out to cool, I flipped them out of the pans onto a long piece of parchment paper.
And here’s where I love getting messy with it. Using a 1-2 cans of white frosting (I used a fluffy vanilla marshmallow variety), use at least 1/2 of the can to top one 8″ round cake.
Now, simply place the second 8″ round cake on top of the other. Do note that to enable a finished flat cake top, I left this (now) top layer flipped upside down. I press gently for frosting to just begin oozing out. This will help enable frosting the sides of the cake as well.
Take your remaining frosting, and dollop at will. Remember, the Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles will cover the frosting entirely. So be fearless with that spatula and give that cereal something to stick to!
And just like that, you’re officially a Pinterest approved Mom-Of-The-Year. I used about 2 cups of Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles on the entire cake. After pouring the bulk on top, fold up the sides of the parchment paper to press the loose cereal to the sides of the cake as well.
One look and my daughter knew this was the birthday cake for her. While I used Fruity Pebbles like this in the past, there is an added fun with the delicious marshmallow shapes. A sweet treat indeed, I’m sure this cake will amp up the awesomeness for enjoying cereal anytime of the day!
