Expert Tips

  • You can stack in twos or fours, but the stacks of four are more likely to topple over and will reduce your serving count to 15.

More About This Recipe
  • I’m sorry, but no. I cannot eat this cake. I cannot look at this cake. I cannot even think about this cake.

    Want to know why?

    Because I immediately start singing Christmas songs. It’s ridiculous. And nobody wants to hear me sing Christmas songs. Trust me on that.

    There’s just something about these festive little treats that puts me in the Christmas spirit! I bet they’ll do the same for you.

    I love how simple this is to make. They’re one of those desserts that look like you put a lots of time and effort in—when really you just threw some food coloring at a cake mix!

    Start by whipping up a couple of Betty Crocker™ cake mixes dyed with food coloring. Isn’t that green gorgeous? The red looked pretty great too.

    Then you mix together a container of marshmallow creme and a container of fluffy white frosting.

    Next, you cut both the cakes into 30 equal-sized pieces.

    Spread them with frosting, stack them up and top with sprinkles.

    I got a little carried away and did a double stack. That one’s for me, y’all!
