This Dunkaroo Layered Cake Tastes Like Your Childhood In All Of Its Funfetti Glory

When I first came up with the idea to create a Dunkaroo layered cake based off my favorite childhood snack, I couldn’t wait to get started on figuring out how to piece together the perfect recipe. But I’ll admit, after I made the frosting and stuck my finger in the bowl (oh, don't act like you've never done that before) to test out the Dunkaroo-inspired mix, I was a bit skeptical. I haven't had a Dunkaroo in ages, but after tasting my latest creation, I just felt like something was off. So I opened the box of Teddy Grahams, "dunked" one in the frosting, and all of a sudden it was as though the entire decade of the '90s flashed before my eyes. SUCCESS! 

Now imagine that yumminess mixed with your favorite funfetti cake. Does life get any better? No people, it does not. 

This ultimate throwback of a cake is the perfect treat for any occasion. Think about it: Dunkaroos were just an after school snack for most of us, so why not take it to the next level and have this '90s cake as your after work snack? Here's how to bring your childhood back to life in the most delicious way possible.


Ingredients:

For the cakes:

For the frosting:

  • 2 1/4 cup dry funfetti cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup cool whip
  • Sprinkles
  • Teddy Grahams

Supplies:

  • Wilton layered cake pans
  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • Spatula
  • Mixing spoon
  • Frosting bag
  • Cake stand
1. In a large mixing bowl, make your favorite white cake recipe. Add in sprinkles.

2. Bake cake accordingly. While cake bakes, in a separate large mixing bowl, combine cool whip, yogurt, and cake mix. Add in sprinkles to the frosting. 

3. Once the cakes have baked and cooled completely, place one on top of a cake stand. Layer frosting on top, and then place another cake on top of the frosting. Repeat until all cakes have been used.

4. Decorate the top of the cake however you desire, and place Teddy Grahams around. Enjoy!
