Lucky Charms® Leprechaun Hat Cake
Lucky Charms turns 50 this year! Find out how to create a bright, cheery rainbow cereal-treat cake with this simple tutorial.
When I was a kid, the ditty went “pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, green clovers, blue diamonds and purple horseshoes.” The Lucky Charms marshmallow shapes have changed a bit through the years (I especially loved the addition of red balloons in the late ‘80s) but the quirky mascot Lucky the Leprechaun is still the same. And 50 years later, we’re still after his delicious Lucky Charms!
In honor of Lucky’s 50th birthday, I created a cake with him in mind. It starts with a 10-inch round layer of Lucky Charms cereal treats (clearly, this will be his favorite part) which makes a sturdy base for the many colorful 8-inch cake layers that get stacked on top. This stacking creates a unique shape that, when covered in green frosting, looks much like a leprechaun hat. It’d be so party perfect for St. Paddy’s day, too, and there’s plenty to share.
Here’s how to make it.
