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.

*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!

Rice Krispie Treat Sprinkle Cake

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.

My favorite birthday alternative is pie! I LOVE pie! I've never been much of a cake person but I could probably eat an entire pie on my own.

Lacey said...

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!

Anna S said...

Love this cake, perfect for kid's birthday! Would be delicious studded with candies too!

Lori said...

I love any kind of cupcake! Just small enough of a serving to get in a little sweet for the day!

Sarah said...

I just showed this to a co-worker....we are on a mission to make!!!

We love pudding cake for birthdays! Super delicious with ice cream :)

YAY for four years!!! I hope you continue to impress us with sprinkle signature treats!

Looks amazing! I personally love a birthday tower of See's Candy.

Lori said...

It's all about cupcakes! Just enough sweetness to quell my sweet tooth!

Taylor F. said...

My favorite birthday cake alternative: birthday cake ice cream. It even has the frosting inside!

I love ice cream cakes. I always wanted one for my birthday. :) I'm hoping one year someone will get me one.

My favorite non-cake birthday treat is baklava! The crisp, the sweet, the chewy ... Excuse me while I go wipe the drool off of my chin.

Madeline Waite said...

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.

Sandi Chetwynd said...

What a gorgeous cake!

Cookies, especially soft baked frosted cookies!

Sarrah Healy said...

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!

katerina magod said...

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

Emily said...

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

Shannon said...

I am huge fan of fudge. My mom once made me a three tiered fudge birthday cake. It was amazing, and lasted about two months in my freezer.

Anonymous said...

I am a big blondie fan so if I was looking for a birthday cake alternative blondies would be the way to go. Congratulations on your 4 years!

Sandi Chetwynd said...

My favorite bday alternative would be cheesecake :)

tobylynne said...

My favorite cake alternative would be ice cream! Although, rice krispie treats would be a close second. Beautiful decorating!

Sandra Case-Schmitt said...

Cookies are my favourite! Especially to bring as a gift instead of a cake! ;)

Robin said...

apple pie

Karen said...

My favorite cake replacement is apple pie!

abpaulson said...

I actually prefer cookies over cake, any day!

Autumn said...

I love icecream cake as an alternative! The cookie crumbles in between the chocolate and vanilla layers. That's the best part.

Judy D said...

I think I would rather eat cheesecake than regular ole cake. In fact, that's just what I did this past birthday. I've never made a cheesecake myself...maybe I need to try it! I love the Krispie Treat cake you made. Sprinkles are such fun and bright and happy little things! Thanks for the giveaway!

Happy Blog Birthday!!! :)

I love birthday cakes!!! But if it had to be something else, I would go for cupcakes and cookies because you can decorate them in the theme of the party and make them look pretty :)

Thanks for the worldwide giveaway! The colour is perfect! Love it <3

I love brownies and pop cakes!

My favorite bday plan B is a giant cookie :)) Thank you for this wonderful book and blog that i check almost every week :)

crystal.blanche said...

Oooh what a beauty that cake is!! So much candy crunch. Cake alternative? Well, My mom used to decorate marshmallows stuck onto ritz crackers to look like funny men. Totally ridiculous, totally low brow, always love it.

Sandra Case-Schmitt said...

Cookies are my favourite! Especially to bring as a gift instead of a cake! ;)

Bobby said...

Simple AND beautiful ! I love when cakes make me dream, even more with beautiful pictures. 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.

Sarrah Healy said...

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.

Bobby said...

I forgot : Happy birthday from Paris !

Sarrah Healy said...

Don't laugh, but our favorite cake alternative are donuts. We have learned that the kids just eat the frosting off of cake but love the entire donut. Go figure. So every year they get a lovely donut with some candles.

Alicia said...

If it's for me, cheesecake. For others, cake pops or the person's favorite dessert (some of my friends LOVE my banana bread so I pop a candle in that).

Iraa Kadchha said...

If I'm not doing classic birthday cake its either cheesecake or Blueberry breakfast cake!

Anonymous said...

My favorite birthday cake alternative are cupcakes:) A lot of cupcakes!

I love the idea of doing this in a cupcake tin. Seems like it might be slightly less messy for my four-year-old and his classmates.

Beautiful rice crispy cake! My favorite birthday cake alternative is cheesecake! :D

Elizabeth said...

This looks AMAZING. I like cookie cake, chocolate bundt cake, and ice cream cake.

Sarah said...

Happy birthday to my favorite sweets blog!

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.

Missy Clayton said...

4 YEARS and going strong! Love all the sprinkles.

Ashley Rehnblom said...

Oh my goodness I love the sprinkles! I think after cake I love cookies :)

Crystal said...

Congrats! I love a big birthday Pizookie!

Tracey said...

That's gorgeous!
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!
I'd love a version of this with chocolate in the middle..maybe...peanut butter?

Priya said...

its got to be a roasted chicken:)!

Tania Torres said...

They say a party without a cake is just a meeting...
But if I had to pick something else I'd go for cupcakes.
I love cupcakes! Plus I think it's really fun to play with all the flavors
and toppings! Also, you can always get help from your children
and use as much sprinkles as you want! :D

Nini said...

At first, congratulations for your 4 year anniversary of blogging! I like you blog, book and recipes. Even when my English isn't good it is worth to bought your book and practice my language skills plus your writing is so easy to understand.

Ah, I love your cakes! I wish someone would make me such cute cakes if I have birthday. :( (But my friends & family present me other cute things.<3)

What would be my favourite birthday cake alternative. Mhm, well I am really obsessed with "Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte" (Blackforrest Cerry Cake), but I also like chocolates or cookies. I love everything what tastes good! :o)


This is so a nice giveaways! I always dream about having a kitchenaid mixer, maybe I have luck. I will give it a try. ♥

Cookies would be my alternate. I love baking cakes and decorating them but I am really not into eating sweets too much

Brianne said...

My favorite birthday cake alternative would probably be cupcakes. I know that's not much of an alternative but I've always preferred cupcakes to actual cake. If I'm making a birthday dessert for my boyfriend thought it's always pudding or banana cream pie (they're his favorites).
Your rice crispy sprinkle cake is sooo adorable!

Congratulations on your blog anniversary! I have loved this blog for a while, so it's an easy WIN WIN when you published a book too! My fav alternative to traditional birthday cakes is a large strawberry shortcake (the biscuit part is a little sweet with some cornmeal in it for a bit of extra crunch) and lots of wonderful sweet whipped cream! As a June birthday, its so perfect and we sometimes use fresh NJ peaches instead of berries!

Aimee said...

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!!

JoshandFaye Kelley said...

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

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 :)

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

Rebecca said...

Flourless chocolate tortes are a favorite in my family ^__^

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.

Kate O'Brien said...

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.

I'm a big fan of birthday pie, especially mini pies! Just made some mini pumpkin pies for my son's 6-month birthday this month.

Cheesecake is always my go-to birthday dessert. Strawberry cheesecake.

You weren't kidding when you said lots of sprinkles. That with the rice krispies treats would have me bouncing off the walls.

Happy Blog Birthday.
I love cake or almond tart with soft eggs

Favourite alternative is cup-cakes, if they count! Nice and small for a small celebration! :D

Lately I have fallen in love with sprinkles so for me any birthday treat with sprinkles is a winner :)
