Back to school season is in full swing. While the school supply aisles have been crowded with eager students, I have been busy coming up with different ways to reinvent traditional school treats for our partnership with Sprinkles and Grins, a website brought to you by Betty Crocker & Cake Mate. Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing some of my favorite back to school treats as well as telling you about a great way for you to get involved with Back to School Bake Off!
Every after school study date needs a great snack to keep you going. For some students, math is their least favorite subject, so why not show them it can be fun again! These simple stacked cakes use circular cake cut-outs, Cake Mate Icing, and rainbow sprinkles to create a fun, encouraging dessert. Simply bake your cake, cut out the pieces, stack them together, and top each study session snack with your favorite math problems.
You will need:
- One Betty Crocker Party Rainbow Chip cake mix baked as directed in a 13×8 Pan (You can also make this by adding Cake Mate Rainbow Sprinkles to white cake batter)
- Circle Cookie Cutter
- Cake Mate Blue Glitter Icing
- Cake Mate Rainbow Sprinkles
- Draw your favorite math sign on a pretty piece of paper. Cut it out and tape it to a cake pop stick.
- Freeze your cake at least 3 hours prior to cutting to ensure you get a “clean cut” with your cookie cutter.
- Using your cookie cutter, cut out circles of cake.
- Attach Cake Mate Star tip directly on to Cake Mate Blue Glitter Icing. Swirl icing around top of cake and alternate 3 layers of cake.
- For the third top layer of cake, swirl blue icing on top and decorate with Rainbow Sprinkles.
- Insert Math sign on cake pop stick. Insert cake pop stick all the way in order to ensure your Mini Stacked Cake will be stable.
