I made this quick and easy cake mix as an extra dessert for our St Paddy's Day Dinner menu.

I made it mainly because it was quick and I had so many other ambitious dinner items on the menu to prepare, and merely wanted to add an extra dessert that was quick and easy and this was my quick solution..

I topped the cake with a homemade frosting and gave it that extra special flavor, and it was such a cool minty flavor.

Just used the ingredients I had on hand to come up with this dessert.

How to Make Marble Mint & Chips Layer Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. These are the 2 pans (9 X 9 inch) that I used to bake the cakes. You may also use an 8 inch ROUND PAN IF YOU LIKE, and cake will be taller in volumn. For this recipe I only needed 2 of these pans.
  2. Prepare cake according to directions on box.
  3. Add Peppermint Extract.
  4. Substitute Green River soda, or any Lemon Lime soda for the water.
  5. Add the Jello Pistachio pudding mix to the batter, as well as the mini chocolate chips.
  6. Divide batter in half into a separate bowl. Then add the box of Lemon Lime Jello.
  7. Add 20 drops of green food coloring to the bowl with the lime jello. Leaving other bowl as is.
  8. Alternate spoons of batter from each bowl to each pan, USING A SEPARATE SPOON FOR EACH BOWL.Blend till color is even.
  9. Smooth over top of batter in each pan with back of spoon to get the batter closer together if not already touching.
  10. Bake by package directions 350 degrees F, for me it was about 29 minutes.
  11. Prepare frosting by combining butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar, and beating till creamy. Then add the Irish Cream liqueur one tablespoon at a time till desired consistency is reached. adding a few drops of green food color till desired shade of green is reached.
  12. Frost cake between each layer, on top and sides.
  13. Top with garnish ingredients if desired. Green sugar crystals, mini chocolate chips, and andes mint candies.
  14. Cut and serve.
