Welcome!  It’s hard to believe that the Fourth of July is only one month away.  Oh, how time flies!

I love this holiday for many reasons.  Gathering with friends and family, celebrating our freedom, and watching how excited the kids get when they watch the fireworks.  I am also a sucker for all of the fun foods that we can make red, white, and blue.

Red, White, and Blue Corn Flake Cake

For this week’s recipe, I’ve taken our family’s traditional cornflake treat recipe and made it into a red, white, and blue cornflake cake.  The best part, you don’t have to form wreaths or other shapes — just press into a bundt cake pan.

Grocery List

  • 6 cups of miniature marshmallows (2 packages needed)
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • Red and blue food coloring
  • 1 box of corn flakes (7 1/2 cups needed)
  • Red, white and blue sprinkles (optional)

Instructions

Start by greasing a bundt cake pan.  You will be making three layers – red, white and blue.

Melt 2 cups of miniature marshmallows and 1/4 butter in the microwave in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

Once melted, add 3-4 drops of red food coloring.  Add more, if needed, to get the shade of red you like.

Next, add 2 1/2 cups of corn flakes.  Stir well.

Grease your hands with cooking spray or butter.  Then press the red layer into the bottom of the bundt cake pan.

Repeat the same steps for the white layer, no food coloring needed. 😉  Press the white layer on top of the red layer.

Finally, repeat the same steps for the blue layer.  Add the blue layer on top of the white layer.

Chill for about an hour or more.  Then place a plate or serve tray over the bundt cake pan and flip the cake over.  It should come out easily with a few pats on top of the pan.

Sprinkle with red, white, and blue sprinkles.

Or use red, white, and blue M&Ms.  Or drizzle with red, white, and blue colored melted chocolate.

  1. I want to colour my cornflakes red but without marshmallows, i.e. a dry finished product, but the water and colouring didnt work too well, maybe I’ll try butter and colouring and add to cornflakes then dry them?

      Hi Gerald! I have not tried this, it may work with the butter. Also look into a food coloring spray.

  2. Tennille @ Two Kids And A Budget says:

    That is such a cute idea and I bet the kids would love it! I’m going to have to add this to my “must try” list. :o)

      The kids will love it! And it won’t last long. 🙂
