This kid-pleasing confection has a sweet secret: chocolate-marshmallow icing inside. Cereal bits give it a festive trim. Prepare the Basic Crisp-Rice Treats, then follow the molding instructions below to make the cake.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans with cooking spray. Prepare crisp-rice mixture; before pouring into pan, reserve 2 tablespoons for patching cake, and set aside, covered. Divide remaining crisp-rice mixture among prepared cake pans. Press into pans with greased fingers to level. Let cool until set, at least 30 minutes.

  • Run a knife around edges of cakes to loosen; unmold onto parchment paper.

  • While frosting is still warm, pour onto center of 1 cake layer, and spread evenly to edges. Let stand 10 minutes. Place second cake layer on top; press down gently. Using reserved pieces of crisp-rice mixture, patch edges where frosting is visible.

  • Decorate with cereal, arranging pieces around top, middle, and bottom edges. Let cake stand until firm enough to slice, at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. After 2 hours, wrap cake in plastic wrap to prevent it from getting too hard to slice.

What a great idea! I would actually completely cover the cake in icing, so it is a surprise. When everyone sees the cake is actually rice crispy it will be even more special. I make a fresh watermelon cake with whipped cream icing and people think the pink cake part is salmon! It is actually a watermelon cut in a cake shape! So my group will really be shocked with rice crispy center. What will I come up with next they will say! Thanks for the great idea!
