Want cake for breakfast? This Strawberry Fruity Pebble Cake is the perfect way to get away with cake before 10 am by topping it with colorful cereal.
Occasionally I have a stroke of brilliance. Often though it’s more like subconscious brilliance. When my inner, more-genius self takes over and does something totally amazing that makes me proud for days.
This cake is absolutely one of those brilliant moments.
It all started with an idea. A passing thought. Hey, I should put fruity pebbles in a cake…
During the execution though, the idea blossomed into something much greater than just a cake with some colorful cereal in it.
I realize that I didn’t include a picture of the inside of this cake. For that I apologize. Let me just tell you that the inside of this cake… is pink. Although I don’t normally do pink (it just looks terrible on me, I’ve come to accept it), I do love pink in this cake.
Bright strawberry pink, studded with seven million fruity pebbles. At least seven million. Maybe eight.
Maybe it’s the kid in me that is so excited about this cake. The kid who likes bright colored anything and the sugar addict who just loves all delicious and tasty treats.
And this I assure you is delicious, tasty, and by the way probably the most moist cake I’ve ever had a bite of.
This was the second dessert I made for my niece’s going-away-to-college party. I’m feeling old. I think my brilliant sub-conscious may have been trying to rebel by creating a dessert which brought out my younger, saturday morning cartoon watching self.
