Conjure Up Some WandaVision-Inspired Hex Cakes

Let these cakes comfort you!

Think back to your favorite retro TV shows and you might realize, they all star Wanda Maximoff! That’s because you’re watching Marvel Studios’ WandaVision and with the finale now upon us, sorcerous snacks are a necessity.

This recipe makes Darcy’s Hex happen by cutting luscious red velvet cake into small hexagon shapes, then sandwiching them together with a bewitching pink cream cheese frosting. The cakes are topped with a little chaos magic in the form of sugar crystals and a very familiar red fondant headdress. 

To celebrate Marvel Studios’ first Original Series, conjure up these WandaVision Hex Cakes for your viewing party and watch the entire Marvel Studios’ WandaVision series, now streaming on Disney+!
