{VIDEO} No Bake Pink Winter Wonderland Gingerbread Cake

A no-bake cake made of rice krispies treats, frosting and candy! All decorated to look like a whimsical winter wonderland.

If you guys give this a try, make sure to go follow me on social media @TheLindsayAnn and tag me in a picture, so I can go like all of your recreations, or share this video with somebody who you know would love this tutorial!

I used a basic rice cereal treat recipe for the cake and added some holiday gingerbread spice to it. You can use store bought or homemade frosting, then decorate with candy!

Keep it simple, or really decorate it for a custom Xmas scene!

Dust it with powdered sugar to look like snow and make it extra festive! How cute did it turn out?! And it was so easy.

Crispy Cake:
Line two 6-inch round cake pans with plastic wrap and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Stir in spices, followed by the molasses. Add marshmallows, on low heat, stirring until fully melted. Turn off heat and pour over cereal, in a large bowl. Stir together until cereal is well coated.

Divide mixture between prepared pans. Press down with greased hands until flat and level, making sure the mixture is pressed into the corners of the pan. Place in fridge to cool until set, about 30 minutes.

Place first layer on a serving platter. Spread a layer of frosting on top. Place second layer on top, upside down. Pile frosting on top.

Top with mini graham cracker gingerbread house, rice krispies treat Christmas trees. Dust with powdered sugar and decorate with candies, sprinkles and lollipops.
