RECIPE: Six-layer milk soaked cereal cake with Frosted Flakes frosting

Cake (from top to bottom):

  1. Fill six cake pans nearly to the brim, each with a different cereal.
  2. Pour each in separate bowl and add approx. one cup of whole milk, occasionally tossing to ensure that it absorbs evenly.
  3. When the cereal is milk-logged, pour off excess milk and drink (cuz it’s delicious).
  4. Now mix each with just enough batter to bind the cereal. Pour back into cake pans and bake.
  5. Cool cakes overnight in fridge.

Filling and Frosting:

  1. Fold frosted flakes into vanilla frosting.
  2. Chill, fill and frost like you mean it!
  3. Don’t forget to crumb coat the cake with plain frosting before applying the fab frosted flake frosting.
  4. Finish with Lucky Charms Marbits, Trix, Froot Loops and Cocoa Puffs.
  5. Chill, present with much cereal fanfare and serve with style.
  6. Get out the electric knife and start sawing away.
  7. Serve with ice cold glasses of, what else, milk!
