Cupcake-Pebbles.Makes 1 Giant Cupcake (10-12 servings)
– 4 cups Cupcake Pebbles cereal – divided
– 1 box yellow cake mix (plus required cake ingredients)
– 2 16-ounce containers canned vanilla frosting
– decorations: mini pretzel sticks; chocolate sticks; licorice or rolled cookies (about 30-60 pieces each, depending on thickness)
– food coloring
Cupcake-Pebbles.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
Place 2 cups of Cupcake Pebbles cereal in a small bowl. Set aside.
Prepare cake mix as directed on package and fold in 2 cups of cereal. Divide the batter equally between 2 cake pans. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until the top springs back when touched lightly and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool 10 minutes in pans. Invert cakes on cooling rack and cool completely.
Cupcake-Pebbles.Once cooled, the cupcake is ready to assemble. Place one cake layer on a plate and frost top evenly with 1/2 can frosting. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cereal. Top with second cake layer. Frost sides of cupcake with 1/2 can frosting – heavier at the top edge to create a slightly flared effect. Adhere pretzel sticks, chocolate sticks (or other cookies/candies) around sides of cake, close to each other. Trim as necessary to resemble a cupcake liner.
Cupcake-Pebbles.Tint remaining frosting with desired coloring and spread on top to resemble giant cupcake. Sprinkle top with remaining 1 cup of cereal right before serving. Enjoy
