Even though lucky charms may be marketed towards kids, the flavors in this cake aren’t. The beautiful moist green ombre layers inside are flavored with coffee and the frosting is made with marshmallow fluff and Irish Cream. You can still make this cake kid-friendly by substituting the Irish cream with heavy cream.
