Crayon Cake

I made this crayon cake for my daughter’s Pre-K graduation. I used two boxed cake mixes and canned icing. I baked two rectangle sheet cakes the day before so they could completely cool. The next day I cut a few inches off the top of one cake so when I stacked them there would be a place for the ice cream cone crayons.

I iced the whole cake in race car yellow and using floss I marked where the green icing would go. I mixed four different colors (I would have done the primary colors but all I had was Dora the Explorer colors!) and warmed the mixed icing until the icing was pourable.

I cut two ice cream cones in half making four crayon tops and poured each color on one. Once they cooled enough to handle I placed them on the cake. Everyone really loved the cake and I have to say it was one of the easiest cakes I have done.

  1. Thank you so much for this idea! Looking at the picture and directions a couple of times,I am now siked enough to attempt this cake lol. Question, for the cones you meantioned pouring th icing on not in the shells correct? Do I need a special tool to get the icing on so smoothly?
