  • 1
    Grease 9-inch springform pan with butter; set aside.
  • 2
    In 4-quart Dutch oven, melt 10 tablespoons butter over low heat. Add marshmallows; cook and stir until melted. Pour cereal over marshmallow mixture; stir together with large wooden spoon until all cereal is coated with marshmallow. Quickly press cereal mixture in pan with well-buttered hands. Use sheet of waxed or cooking parchment paper on top of cereal mixture to pack it down into the pan. Refrigerate cake until well chilled and set, about 2 hours.

    Place rainbow mix decors in large baking pan with sides. Remove springform side from pan; slide large off-set spatula under cake to loosen from base. Spread 1/2 container frosting on side of cake to cover completely. Roll edge of cake in decors until completely covered. Transfer cake to cake stand or serving platter.
  • 4
    Frost top of cake with 1/2 container of frosting. Press decors onto top of cake with hands. If desired, brush excess decors into pan using small pastry brush.
  • 5
    Transfer remaining 1/2 container frosting to decorating bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe stars along top edge of cake. Place 1 chocolate candy in center of each piped star. If birthday candles are being used, pipe more frosting onto center of cake; stand candles upright in frosting. Let cake come to room temperature before cutting into slices with large chef's knife. Store loosely covered with plastic wrap.

Expert Tips

  • Mostly any Chex™ cereal can be used in this recipe. Just be sure to add 2 teaspoons vanilla to the marshmallow batter if you're not using Vanilla Chex™ cereal.
  • Use different sizes and styles of birthday candles on top of this cake to increase the fun factor!
