Rice Krispie Treat Sprinkle Cake - Sprinkle Bakes is Four!


It's a very Happy Blog Birthday!

Today I'm celebrating four years of blogging. Sometimes I look back at the work I've done over these past years and wonder - who did that? Did I really bake all those things? Did I really write a book? And am I really writing another one? Yes!

It's a little surreal getting to do the thing you love every day. It's a blessing. I still can't believe it's only been a year since I quit my day job to pursue Sprinkle-Baking full time. I've never been more grateful for this life I have. I thank you for being part of it. 


This year's birthday cake definitely spreads the sprinkle-love, but it's no ordinary cake. It's made from one of my favorite sweets on the planet - Rice Krispie treats. I whipped up the biggest batch ever (ever, ever!) to make this triple-layer confection. 

It's an easy birthday cake alternative, just make sure to grab your biggest stock pot for the task. I'll admit, it feels a little messy to make (buttering up hands to press the candy into cake pans) but in the end clean-up was a snap. And that's always a good thing!  



To spread even more birthday cheer, I'm giving away a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in a color I've been crushing on - pistachio! Isn't it pretty? Sigh.


a Rafflecopter giveaway
*This giveaway is open worldwide.



This sprinkle cake is sure to bring a smile with its burst of color, and who doesn't love delicious vanilla-scented marshmallow Rice Krispie treats? It's really fun for something different birthday-wise. Hope you'll give it a try!

Source: Martha Stewart crispy rice recipe, SprinkleBakes frosting recipe
Yield: One 7-inch triple layer cake or one 9-inch double layer cake
Prep: 45 minutes, total time about 2 hours 30 minutes

10 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 cups/716 g mini marshmallows
2 teaspoons/12 g vanilla extract
13 1/2 ounce box Rice Krispies cereal
Pinch of salt

1 cup/ 220g of unsalted butter, softened
2 1/2 cups/ 275 g confectioners’ sugar - the finest you can find (usually 10x)
2 teaspoons/ 12g. vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
Milk or heavy cream, optional
2 cups/436g multicolor jimmies
Multicolor Sixlets candies (about 20 pieces) for decoration
  1. Grease three 7-inch spring-form pans or two 9-inch pans with butter; set aside.
  2. For the Krispie treat portion, melt butter in a large pot over low heat (I used my 20 quart lobster pot). Add marshmallow; stir until melted. Add vanilla extract and stir to combine. Add Rice Krispies cereal to the marshmallow mixture. Stir together with a large wooden spoon until all the cereal is coated with marshmallow. Quickly press the cereal into the pans with well-buttered hands. Use a length of wax paper or parchment paper on top of the Krispie mixture to pack it down into the pans. Refrigerate cakes until well chilled and set, about 2 hours.
  3. For the frosting, mix together the butter and confectioners’ sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Begin mixing on low speed until crumbly, and then increase to high and beat for 3 minutes.Add vanilla bean paste (or extract) and beat again for another minute until light and fluffy.  If you find the buttercream is too stiff, you may add milk or heavy cream 1 tablespoon at a time until the mixture is spreading consistency.
  4. Transfer 1/3 cup frosting to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip; set aside.
  5. Unmold Krispie treat cakes from the spring-form pans and frost the tops of two cake layers. Stack layers with the unfrosted layer on top; gently press layers together. Pour jimmies into a baking pan with a lip and spread evenly. Frost the sides of the cake with buttercream using an off-set spatula and roll the sides of the cake in the sprinkles. Hold the stacked cake at each unfrosted end as you turn and roll. Stand cake upright in the baking pan. Frost top of cake and sprinkle on jimmies. Press handfuls of jimmies into the top of the cake to coat completely. Allow the excess to fall back into the baking pan.
  6. Transfer the cake to a cake stand or serving platter using a large metal spatula or cake lifter.  Pipe stars along the top edge of the cake with the reserved frosting in the piping bag.  Place a Sixlets candy in the center of each piped star.  If birthday candles are being used, pipe more frosting onto the center of the cake and stand candles upright in the frosting. Let cake come to room temperature before cutting. Use a large chef's knife to cut the cake into slices.

  5. My favorite birthday cake stand in was when we had apple pie for my daughter and son's apple orchard themed birthday party a few year ago. Flavor wise though, cupcakes are hard to beat!!! Especially spiced cakes with creamy frosting. Yumm!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Typically I am a sucker for bday cake. But I could go for epic brownies instead. Or even rice krispie treats! Those are one of my favorites. Never thought to make them into a cake.

  28. This made me chuckle. We have many small children and we have learned over the years that cake does not always go well. They just eat the toppings or the frosting. So our favorite cake alternative (don't laugh) are donuts. They are cheap and can be custom made per kid. Add a candle or two and viola!

    ReplyDelete
  29. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
    For a birthday cake alternative I usually choose tarts! fruit tart or chocolate ganache tart or maybe a cheesecake!! I 've never tried brownie cake but a few months ago I made a pancake bday cake!! it was not very pleasing in the eye cause the whipped cream frosting melted but everybody loved the taste! haha

    ReplyDelete
  30. pie! pie pie pie. i love banana and coconut cream pie... so good.

    ReplyDelete

I'm pretty simple, I love cakes for birthdays, you can make wonderful decorations with them and let your imagination works to create new flavors. I don't prefer a special type I like to bake a unique cake each time.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Don't laugh. We have lots of little kids in our house and we have learned that they would just eat the frosting or the ice cream. So our favorite cake alternative and has become tradition are donuts. They eat the entire thing and can be custom made for each child.

    Because it was super hard to find especially in the small town I'm from, I used to tell my mom all I wanted was a tub of Yarnell's Sonic Cherry Limeade Sherbet. No baked goods, just that sherbet. It would usually appear, complete with candles on the night of my birthday.

    Seems like it could be a fun "cake" to make during a party, let every one get all hands on deck (as long as they're washed etc, haha)
    My Dad used to put chocolate on rice krispie squares when I was a kid, I thought that was genius, tasted it!

    ReplyDelete
  137. In my family we always make "Robin Hood Cake" in a 9x12 pan. It's a chocolate cake from scratch. After the cake is done, we don't frost it. We cut it while it's hot and pour the powdered sugar/butter/milk frosting over each piece as it's served. Doesn't get much better than that. Oh, and every family has a Robin Hood cake pan - dented, bruised and battered but perfect for celebrating!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Absolutely love all those sprinkles! My favorite alternatives are fresh fruit pie...never baked, so the fruit stays crisp!

  162. Happy Birthday. Your blog is amazing! It's a pure pleasure visiting it.
    When it comes to birthdays it's almost always decorated cupcakes. Me, my family and friends all love these little treats. The huge plus - it's easy to split among people and there's no need for plates :)

  165. I love making cupcakes or cakepops for parties! Something about treats being more "bite size" makes me justify devouring them better. Ha. ;)

  167. Cookies! I haven't had an actual birthday cake in probably 15+ years. I either get a cupcake or cookies since my husband doesn't eat cake and I would end up eating all of it.

  172. Love that sprinkle cake and happy blog birthday!!! I LOVE CAKE - so the only time I did a cake alternative was for our gluten allergic friend about 14 years ago (before all the food blogs!) and we did a rice krispie cake too - although not nearly as fun as this one! {Pick me! Pick me!}

  175. Happy Birthday! I was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, so I didn't have birthdays until I stopped attending meetings at age 16, so we always joke that I'm 16 years younger than I am because of those missed celebrations. I'm pretty happy with any kind of sweet treat on my birthday, but I'm partial to a perfectly cooked piece of Baklava.
