It’s Going Down for Cereal

I love cereal – any and every kind. As far back as I can remember, I hardly ever ate anything else for breakfast. In the morning before school I could easily wolf down two huge bowls of Life, Rice Krispies, Frosted Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, Cheerios, Froot Loops, you name it. My cereal addiction didn’t stop when I got to college but I just couldn’t manage to get myself to the dining hall before my 9am classes. Easy solution – keep cereal and milk in my dorm room. Big problem – cereal at the campus convenience store was obscenely expensive and I was going through over a box a week. Finally, parents’ weekend rolled around some time in October and my parents took me to Costco to stock up. We brought back somewhere between 15-20 boxes of cereal to my dorm room and then realized that, oh yeah, dorm rooms are TINY. My roommate happened to be gone for the weekend and she came back Sunday night to a room packed with cereal boxes in every nook and cranny. I’m not kidding; there were boxes under my bed, stacked up in the back of the closet, behind the TV, between my desk and my dresser, and god knows where else.

Luckily I had an occasion to bake this only a few days after I saw it, because I don’t think I could have held out much longer.

While I usually choose to bake things based on how delicious they sound, I was drawn to this recipe because this cake just looks like so much FUN. The top of the cake is covered in pretty Golden Oreos and rainbow sprinkles, and then you cut it open and SURPRISE, TIE DYED CAKE! I’ve also been seeing recipes for poke cakes for a while now and I had been itching to try one. Poke cakes can be made with any combination of cake/liquid/frosting flavors. The general rule is that you bake a cake, poke holes in the top of it, and pour a liquid over it. The liquid seeps in and makes the cake extra moist and tastey. So obviously, this rainbow poke cake was calling my name. Continue reading
