Not to toot my own horn, but I love how amazing this lucky charms dessert turned out. The way I chose to decorate the cereal cake is lovely, and I got more compliments on it than any of my other desserts. I am well known amongst friends and family for making cakes and other desserts.

They just know that if I am invited somewhere that I am going to make something that will blow their minds.

Lucky Charms Cake, Cereal Cake

I was inspired to make this layered cake because of my love of Lucky Charms cereal. It’s one of those breakfast cereals that always tastes good, and you can’t help but smile as you eat it. The sweet colorful marshmallows give you a burst of energy in the mornings too. So after I was inspired to make this Lucky Charms layered cake, I got in the kitchen and got to work.

The way it turned out was AWESOME! 

Tips for Making A Layered Cake 

  • Don’t overmix the cake batter so the cake is light and fluffy. 
  • It’s very important to use a non-stick spray. You never want the cakes to stick in the pans, or the layers won’t turn out correctly. 
  • Be careful not to overbake the layers for the cake. 
  • Use a cake leveler to ensure that all the layers are even. This will give you better results when it’s time to frost it. 
  • Practice makes perfect. The more layered cakes you make, the better you will get at it. It takes some practice, but I promise you will get used to it, and they will turn out beautiful.

What Frosting To Use For Lucky Charm Cake 

I recommend using my homemade frosting recipe. It’s delicious and spreads easily when you are decorating the layered lucky charms cake. Or, you can purchase commercially prepared frosting too. It’s totally up to you and your desires. 

How to Store This Cake 

For best results, this lucky charms dessert should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. The cake typically lasts up to 3-4 days.

To make this lucky charms cake, you will need three 9-inch cake pans. They are the perfect size to give you gorgeous layers. You could use a large sheet pan if you don’t want a layered cake, or opt for cupcakes instead.
