Unicorn Rainbow Party Cake


Readers, for a baking blog, I send my apologies that it’s taken so long to put a baking post together.  What I have to confess, my blog is evolving.  It’s not just about baking and cooking any more. It’s becoming a food, cooking, eating out, reviewing and travel blog.  It’s become an extension of my life and me… which is more than just cake! And I’m ok with that.

But tonight, it’s back to my routes, with this TOTALLY SIMPLE, 3 ingredient NO BAKE cake perfect for kids parties or a family get together. Even adults love this one.  Why? Because it’s nostalgic.

I’ve funked this up and gone all out with Lucky Charms cereal for real nostalgia. 

Happy Baking folks!

Ingredients

200g marshmallows (I used 7 giant marshmallows)
50g butter
4 cups Lucky Charms cereal

Method

  1. Melt butter and marshmallows in a pan over medium heat, stirring to make sure none of the ingredients stick to the bottom of the pan.  Stir together when melted and remove from the heat – it should be a light cream colour from the butter.

  2. Add in the Lucky Charms cereal – adding more or less depending how coated you want the cereal to be.
  3. When fully mixed, pour into a greased 8in x 8in silicone cake tub and using a spatula, flatten out into an even square. Sprinkle with hundreds and thousands before the cake sets.
  4. Transfer to the fridge to set and cut into 9 large pieces, or 18 small rectangles.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge but bring to room temperature before serving.  Best eaten within 48 hours.
