If you are looking for a small cake that you can easily eat with your hand and that is also decorated for the holidays, then bake this sweet marble bundt cake.

Marble Gugelhupf birthday cake

children We have a child who always celebrates his birthday during the summer holidays. On the one hand, you have to be prepared for the fact that celebrating with friends and at daycare or school will often have to be celebrated, but on the other hand, you also have the advantage of having the opportunity to make the day very special celebrate. This year we simply went on vacation to the beach after the birthday breakfast. Then you need a birthday cake that you can easily take with you and maybe even eat out of your hand at the rest stop during a picnic break.

For the cake I used my Bundt cake tin (Ø22 cm).

Ingredients for the marble Gugelhupf birthday cake


  • 250 g soft butter
  • 200g sugar
  • 1 Pck. Vanillinzucker
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 5 Owner
  • 250 g flour
  • 3 TL Backpulver
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 50 ml milk
  • some butter for the mold


  • 200g pink icing
  • Or mix it yourself with food coloring, powdered sugar and a little water/lemon juice.
    Or candy melts.
  • Mini Marshmallows

This is how you bake the birthday cake

Grease your Bundt cake pan very well with butter or margarine and preheat the oven to 180° degrees (160° fan oven).

First beat the soft butter with the sugar, vanilla sugar and a little salt until creamy. Then add the eggs and finally stir in the flour and baking powder and 3 tablespoons of milk.

Now divide the dough in half. For the dark dough, mix the baking cocoa with a little sugar and the remaining milk into the dough.

Then first put some of the light dough and then some of the dark dough into the Bundt cake pan. Layer the dough on top of each other and then use a fork to make circles through the dough to create the marbling. Then smooth out the dough. Now the cake has to bake for about 50 minutes.

Let it cool thoroughly and then carefully remove it from the mold and place it on a cake rack.

Now make the icing or warm the finished mixture over a water bath. Then pour the icing over the top edge of the cake so that it runs nicely down. Then immediately stick the small marshmallows to the icing.

The cake is also beautifully festive with small flags that you can make from paper straws, a ribbon and masking tape.

All love,
