I don’t know about you, but I LOVE rice krispies treats! You know what else I love?…cake! Today, I’m combining the two to make cake slice rice krispies treats! I couldn’t think of anything more wonderful than a cake made entirely out of rice krispies treats, including layers of pink and white cereal, topped with swirls of vanilla buttercream. Then sprinkles, of course. One slice of this rice krispies cake and you’ll be in heaven (and maybe a sugar coma). I think this would be a really fun birthday cake alternative for people who don’t like cake or simply a fun way to serve a snack. Rice krispies treats are so easy to make, so this is just a fun way to dress them up a bit differently!
My cake slice rice krispies treats were quickly devoured by one of Andrew’s classes. Otherwise, I’m sure I wouldn’t have eaten them all in two days, ha! Another great thing about rice krispies treats is how long they last compared to other desserts or treats. Pop them in an airtight container or plastic bag and they’ll keep very well for over a week.
Of course, you can swap out the colors for whatever you like and dress up the rice krispies cake with more buttercream and toppings – whatever you’d like. I’m sure they’ll be delicious and look adorable no matter what!
