Cereal Killer Cake – Fruity Pebbles Marshmallow Cake

Ceral Cake

Cereal Killer Cake 1I’ve been dying (no pun intended) to do a throwback cereal themed cake and finally got around to it.  I loved waking up Saturday mornings when I was little, watching Saturday morning cartoons and eating my cereal! I came up with the idea when I grabbed this spoon at my mom’s shop and thought a Cereal Killer Cake would be, well, killer! The cake is my Not Your Basic Vanilla Cake base (recipe coming soon), made with Fruity Pebble cereal milk. The filling was made with homemade marshmallow cream and Fruity Pebbles were mixed in (think a little rice cereal treat like). I finished off the cake with a Vanilla Italian Buttercream and decorated with, you guessed it, more Fruity Pebbles!

Fruity Pebbles CakeYou can make this cake with any of your favorite cereals. It was so hard for me to decide, I almost picked a few. Fruity Pebbles, Fruit Loops and Lucky Charms were my fav. Can you see a bit of a rainbow theme going on here. You can find the cake recipe below.  For the marshmallow cream I used this recipe and mixed in 2 cups of Fruity Pebbles. For the Italian Buttercream I used this recipe from Food 52.

  4. Increase mixer to medium and mix until ingredients are well incorporated
  5. Fold in your Fruity Pebbles, don't mix with the mixer, they'll get crushed.
  6. Divide your batter evenly between your pans and tap on the counter to get some of the air bubbles out
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean
  8. Remove cakes from oven and let cool completely before frosting
  9. While the cakes cool you can make your filling and frosting
  10. Assembly
  11. Once the cakes are cooled and your filling and frosting are ready, you can assemble your cakes
  12. Level your cakes and make sure they're even in size. You can also cut away and of the edges that are over baked
  13. Spread an even layer of the marshmallow filling between your cake layers and dirty ice your cake
  14. Place your cake in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes
  15. Now you're ready to frost. Frost your cake with the Italian Buttercream. Don't worry if the outside isn't perfect, you're going to cover it up with cereal. Besides, this is a Cereal Killer cake, it's gonna be a little messy, he he.
