How to Make Red, White, and Blue Corn Flake Cake

Follow these simple steps to make this delicious cake.

Step 1 | Grease a bundt pan

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

Step 2 | Melt marshmallows and butter

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

Step 3 | Add food coloring

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

Step 4 | Mix in Corn Flakes

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

Step 5 | Press into bundt pan

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

Step 6 | Repeat with last 2 layers

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.

Step 7 | Chill and serve or store for later

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

Slice, serve, and enjoy!

  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)
