Looking for an extra special way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

Well have we got just the thing for you. It's a culinary creation whipped up by our favorite King of Kitsch, Mr. Charles Phoenix who joined Take Two to talk about his new creation.

Irish Whiskey Lucky Charms Cake

  • 2 boxes white cake mix
  • 12 eggs
  • Vegetable oil according to instructions +1/4 cup
  • 750 ml bottle of Irish Whiskey
  • 1 box ‘O Lucky Charms
  • 4 canisters of fluffy white frosting
  • Food coloring

MIX cake according to directions but substituting Irish whiskey for water, adding the additional 6 egg whites and ¼ cup vegetable oil.

SEPARATE charms from the cereal and set aside. Add the whiskey to cereal and let soak for at least 1 hour. After the cereal is well soaked with the alcohol, mix whiskey and cereal together with electric mixer until it turns into a crumbly pasty mess. Add to cake batter. Divide batter in five parts add plenty of bright food coloring to create a rainbow effect of the five layers.

BAKE cake according to box instructions. Cool, stack and frost with frosting tinted with PLENTY of green food coloring. Cover frosting with all the Lucky Charms. Top with six-dozen gold foil covered chocolate coins each stuck with a colored toothpick.
