    Who doesn’t love cake!?

    (I know I do, isn’t that one of the reasons why us moms have so many kids? So we can eat birthday cake every month without feeling guilty? – read more about that HERE, you’re going to love it!)

    In all seriousness though, St. Patricks Day has always been a fun holiday in my family.

    My Dad grew up in England and when he came to America for the first time his roommates played a little prank on him and turned all of the food in the house green. He thought the food had gone bad and threw everything out.

    So the joke was on the roommates.

    With my little ones, I try to make each holiday as festive and fun as I can while keeping life simple without losing my mind. And sometimes it’s hard to find that perfect balance of taking care of yourself while spending time creating memories for the children, working, cleaning the home, and so much more.

    This is one of the reasons why I absolutely love this St Patricks Day zebra roll cake (or any other festive St Patricks Day recipe).

    This recipe is so simple to make and put together. The best part is you can either have your children help you (if you’d like) or they’re going to love watching you make this and seeing all of the colors.

    St Patricks Day Zebra Roll Cake

    Ingredients Needed:

    For The Cake:

    • 2 vanilla cake mix boxes
    • 6 large eggs
    • 2 2/3 cup water
    • 2/3 cup vegetable oil

    For The Frosting:

    • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    • 1/2 cup butter, softened
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 4 cups confectioners sugar

    Instructions:

    For The Cake:

    Follow the instructions on the back of your cake mix box. For this recipe, my family and I used two boxes of Duncan Hines vanilla cake mix.

    eggs beaten in a mixing bowl

    In an electric mixer, beat the eggs.

    cake mix batter being added into mixing bowl

    Add the cake mixes plus remaining ingredients (according to your cake mix box).

    cake batter mixed in bowl with flower spoon on top

    Mix until well blended.

    cake batter separated in two bowls

    Divide the cake mix evenly between two large bowls.

    green cake batter in bowl

    Add a few drops of green food coloring into ONE of the bowls. I added about 4-5 drops to find a shade of green I really liked, but you can add more or less depending on how vibrant you want your cake roll to be.

    green batter with mason jar and ziploc bag

    Spoon the cake mix into a large freezer bag.

    green batter being poured into bag

    Pro Tip: Place your Ziploc bag inside of a mason jar and secure with a rubber band. This will hold the bag in place for you while you pour the cake mix into the bag. You’ll love how little mess there is with this method.

    yellow and green batter in separate bags

    Secure and close the bag once the cake mix reaches the top. If there is any cake mix left over, just set aside for right now. Repeat with the second cake mix batter in a separate freezer bag.

    Preheat oven to 350 F.

    parchment paper with batter under cookie sheet

    Place sheet of parchment paper on top of a small cookie sheet (we have one this size and it’s PERFECT for anything roll cakes).

    Pro Tip: To keep the parchment from sliding and moving on you, make four little dabs (one in each corner) to hold the parchment securely. This little tip has saved my sanity more times than one and I do this every time I cook with batter and parchment paper.

    green and vanilla cake mix batter

    Cut a small hole at the tip of each bag and rotate the batter into diagonal lines across the pan. I began piping with green batter, vanilla, green, etc beginning in the left-hand corner.

    Set aside any extra batter for cupcakes or another yummy treat.

    Gently tap the pan on the counter a few times to pop any air bubbles. Place in the oven for 8 – 10 minutes until cake is spongy and cooked.

    Place a clean dish towel on the counter and carefully remove your cake after the cooking time. While hot, flip the cake carefully onto the dish towel and roll the towel tightly and carefully. Set aside to cool for 30 – 45 minutes.

    For The Frosting:

    ingredients in bowl for cream cheese frosting

    While the cake is cooling, make the icing by mixing the cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract, and confectioners (powdered) sugar.

    mixed cream cheese frosting

    Yummy!

    After the cake has cooled, gently unroll the cake and spread the frosting evenly on the cake, leaving about 1/2-inch at the end.

    Roll tightly and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set.
