I was asked by Skittles through Crowdtap how I incorporate Skittles into summer snacks. I had to really think on this, I have never incorporated skittles into anything. So, I ran to Walmart and I grabbed what I think was a $.94 box of sour skittles, a strawberry cake mix, and cream cheese icing.
This entire cake cost me less than $5.
So, as I was mixing the batter,I followed the instructions and also dropped in a half a box of skittles. This was not a lot. As you can see from the picture, you can really only distinguish one of the Skittles.
After the cake baked and cooled, we covered it in the cream cheese icing and I put skittles across the top of only one side. Those things are incredibly sour.
The cake turned out great. The skittles actually melted into little tart colored places in the cake. I think this was a pretty fun and cheap recipe for the kids and myself. I would really suggest if your kids like super sour things, you try this. Here is a picture of where a green and yellow one melted into the cake.
