  • To make this cake or cupcakes, simply combine the cake mix and cotton candy flavoring in a large mixer bowl. Blend until smooth, adding Sprite slowly while mixing. Continue to beat on medium until fully combined. No need for eggs, milk, oil, or water – just the dry cake mix and Sprite will do the trick.

Pro Tips For Making Blue Moon Cake Recipe

  • Choose Blue Moon beer for a light, flavorful outcome.
  • Swap sour cream with ricotta cheese.
  • Enhance cake moisture by adding a raspberry layer to each.
  • Prep cake pans: cut parchment paper for bottoms, brush with melted butter, place parchment, then brush the top.
  • Cupcakes: Sift flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. Cream butter for 1 min, add sugar; mix for 3-4 mins. Add eggs one by one, mix well after each. Incorporate vanilla, orange zest. Combine beer and milk, alternate with flour into butter mixture. Fill liners 2/3 full.
  • Opt for homemade cream cheese icing for a smooth, gooey frosting.
  • Finish cupcakes with an orange slice on top.

How to Store Blue Moon Cake

To maintain the quality of your Blue Moon cake, refrigerate it for 30 minutes before serving. When transporting, place it on the car’s floorboards, ideally on the front passenger side, and set the AC to the floor to keep it cool. Avoid using ice or a cooler. For mini snack cakes, store at room temperature for up to 3-4 days or in the fridge for a week.

Can You Freeze Blue Moon Cake?

Absolutely, you can freeze Blue Moon Cake for extended freshness. To freeze, follow a comprehensive guide provided in an article, covering various cake types, whether whole or sliced, frosted or unfrosted. It’s worth noting that most cakes freeze excellently when wrapped and stored appropriately, with no discernible difference in taste upon thawing.

However, highly moist or delicate cakes may be adversely affected, whereas cakes with robust frosting can be frozen whole. Additionally, the article advises that snow skin mooncakes, a specific cake type, can also be frozen for prolonged storage.

To do this, place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, ensuring they don’t touch, and freeze for an hour. Afterward, transfer them to a freezer bag or container, where they can stay fresh for up to two months. When you’re ready to enjoy them, a simple room-temperature thawing is all that’s required.
