What is Skittles Cake?
A Skittles cake is a type of cake that is infused with Skittles candies or decorated with Skittles candies on top. Skittles are small, fruit-flavored candies that come in a variety of colors and flavors.
To make a Skittles cake, one approach is to crush Skittles candies into small pieces and mix them into the cake batter or frosting. This can add a burst of flavor and a colorful appearance to the cake. Another approach is to decorate the cake with Skittles candies on top, creating a vibrant and eye-catching design.
Skittles candies have been around since 1974, and they have been a popular candy ever since. Over time, Skittles cakes have become more popular, particularly as people have become more adventurous with cake flavors and designs. With the rise of social media, Skittles cakes have become a viral sensation, with many bakers sharing their colorful and creative designs online.
How to make Skittles Cake?
- all purpose flour, sugar, butter, salt
- egg whites
- White chocolate
- baking powder
- vegetable oil
- 2 packages of skittles
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line three 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper balls and/or grease with cooking spray. Next, mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and salt) in a stand mixer. Blend the room temperature butter pieces into the dry mixture on low speed until fully incorporated.
- Pour in the egg whites and mix on low, continue to add the oil and mix. Use a spatula to scrape the bowl’s sides, then beat for 30 seconds at medium speed.
- Bake for 34-38 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean). Let the cake layers cool for 10-15 minutes on a wire cooling rack before removing from the pan.
- Now use the soft cream cheese and butter, and the sugar and milk together until the frosting has reached the desired consistency. Spread a layer of frosting over your cake circle (to keep it from sliding as you decorate) and place your first layer of cake in the center of the circle. Spread the frosting. With the remaining layers of your cake, repeat the procedure.
- I cut a little piece off the edge of the Skittles box to create room for the skewers. After opening the Skittles box and emptying it, insert your skewer into the open end, then shut it. As you press the skewer into the cake, the box should still be at an angle above it. Skittles should be placed all the way around the box to cover the cake’s top.
