Prep time
Total time
Fruity Pebbles Buttercream Frosting is the perfect compliment to a vanilla cake or cupcakes for that special touch to make your desserts extra fun and colorful!
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 cup finely crushed/powdered Fruity Pebbles (measured after crushing)
  • ¾ cup butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. In the bowl of an stand mixer or using a handheld mixer, cream your butter and shortening together until smooth.
  2. On low speed slowly add in your powdered sugar, when incorporated, add your heavy cream and vanilla and turn speed up to medium and beat until smooth and fluffy. This takes a couple of minutes.
  3. Turn back to low speed and add in your crushed Fruity Pebbles cereal and mix until incorporated.
  4. Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop and scoop onto completely cooled cupcakes or whatever dessert you are using this for. You can also pipe on the frosting if using on cupcakes, but this could be hard to do because of the cereal pieces in the frosting (they will get stuck). Top with some extra whole Fruity Pebbles pieces, if desired.
  5. *If not using frosting immediately store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 hours or refrigerate for up to a week. Bring to room temperature before using.
