Units Scale

For The Cereal Cupcakes:

1 + 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup white sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 cup Lucky Charms cereal

1 cup milk

1/2 cup flavorless oil

1 tsp. white vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

For Vanilla Whipped Cream Frosting:

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 + 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

green food dye, optional

lucky charms marshmallows, for topping

gold sprinkles or glitter, for topping


1. To make the cereal milk: Simply add 3/4 cup Lucky Charms cereal and 1 cup milk to a bowl, and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then strain out the cereal so the milk is ready to use.

2. Now, whisk together your dry ingredients until combined. 1 + 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup white sugar, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Set that aside.

3. To a large bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients: the cereal milk, 1/2 cup oil, 1 tsp. white vinegar, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract.

3. Once the wet ingredients are combined, add the dry ingredients to the wet. Whisk that until a smooth batter forms. Evenly divide the batter into a 12-lined cupcake pan. Bake the cupcakes at 350F for about 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let them cool completely.

4. While the cupcakes are cooling, make the frosting. To a large bowl, add 4 oz. cream softened cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. If you’d like, you can add some food dye at this point. Beat that with an electric hand mixer until combined. Now in a separate bowl, whip 1 + 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

5. Pipe your cooled cupcakes and top with lucky charms marshmallows and gold sprinkles or glitter!

6. Enjoy!
