SKITTLES Recipe Ideas! Cakes, Sprinkles & More…

This week it’s all about SKITTLES! You know – those sweet colourful little chewy candies that almost make you run straight for the dentist’s chair, but somehow you just can’t stop eating the darn things.


I had lots of requests for something Skittles related so I teamed up with one of my favourite YouTube channels to bring you guys an awesome Skittles cake recipe & cake decoration idea.

I created the design and opted for a simple kit kat cake with a gravity defying Rainbow illusion effect and carefully positioned Skittles to create a flowing rainbow across the top of the cake.

I’m a bit in love with how it turned out, and also how easy it is to replicate!

Jenn from Cookies, Cupcakes and Cardio (who also has a blog if you want to check it out) was so creative and made a Skittles POKE Cake recipe, with Skittles flavoured buttercream frosting. Genius!


The poke effect creates a rainbow look inside the cake, which helps with the whole “Taste the Rainbow” motto of Skittles, and carries the decoration right the way through the cake.

And it’s not too sweet as she’s tempered it with a beautiful vanilla cam recipe, so the Skittles flavour is there but its not too overpowering.

In the midst of all that, I discovered you can actually make your own Skittles SPRINKLES! Mind…Blown…


They taste exactly like Skittles but look just like sprinkles or sanding sugar – who knew?? Its totally simple and the only ingredients you need are Skittles and some food colouring (which is optional) along with a low oven and some drying time.

And finally, to complete “Skittles Week” Jenn also loaded a Skittles cupcake recipe on her YouTube channel. So when it comes to Skittles, we truly have all your bases covered!

Enjoy your Skittles, any which way (and say Hi to the dentist for me!)
