Rice Krispies Treat Birthday Cake #SundaySupper

Rice Krispies Treat Birthday Cake

I make a birthday cake for you … well not for you, for America.  Because it’s America’s birthday tomorrow and if there is any birthday that deserves an awesome birthday cake it’s obviously America.  So happy birthday, America, I think you’re going to love this cake.

And you, my readers, are too.  Because, you see, this isn’t any ordinary birthday cake.

I get it; it’s summer and hot and tomorrow is the Fourth and you need a last minute dessert and making a traditional layer cake is so not going to happen.  I totally hear you.

But while this layer cake looks totally normal on the outside, on the inside, it’s Rice Krispies Treats made with Red, White, and Blue Rice Krispies.  And it’s totally amazing!

The “cake” is the softest, gooiest, BEST Rice Krispies Treat you will ever have.  I promise.  It’s just so good.

But then I made seriously irresistible vanilla bean buttercream frosting to fill and cover the cake.  I could eat that frosting by the spoon.  Okay, so I did eat some of it with a spoon, but on the cake, it’s even better.

With the cereal treats and the fluffy buttercream, this is pretty much the cake of my dreams, and dare I say better than a traditional birthday cake.

This is so easy and fun to make, so there’s no excuse to celebrate America’s birthday and some seriously good food this Fourth of July or any day in fact.

Rice Krispies Treat Birthday Cake #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: 18 servings

Ingredients

Treats

1 box Red, White, and Blue Rice Krispies

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed

1 16 ounce bag mini marshmallows

Frosting

2 sticks unsalted butter, super soft

1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

1 box confectioners’ sugar

Instructions

Make the cereal treats. In a large microwave safe bowl combine butter and marshmallows. Microwave until fully melted. Start with 1 minute, stir and then continue microwaving in 30 second increments until fully melted. Stir in the Rice Krispies, reserving a few for decoration.

Once the treats have been stirred together, pour them into a round vessel of your choice. I used a large saucepan lined with cling wrap. Press the treats down very firmly. Allow to cool completely, at least 1 hour.

When ready to assemble the cake, make the frosting. In a large bowl, beat butter and vanilla bean paste until combined. I did this with a hand mixer, but a stand mixer would work as well. Slowly add the sugar and beat it in. If the frosting is too thick, add a bit of milk. Mine was perfect without the milk. Beat the frosting for 2-3 minutes once all the sugar has been added to make it super fluffy.

Using a serrated knife, slice the treat in half horizontally. Place the bottom half on your serving plate. Heap some frosting on it and spread it into an even layer. Place the top half of the treat on top and use the remainder of the frosting to cover the top and sides of the cake. Decorate with the remaining Rice Krispies.

Cake may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
