PEEPS Easter Cake

I’m always looking for an excuse for baking so with Easter right around the corner and a couple of boxes of bunny PEEPS in the cabinet I decided to make an Easter cake made with PEEPS. I made the mistake of letting the boys see the PEEPS so the next hour seemed to take forever to pass by as the starred at the PEEPS while I made the cake. The PEEPS Easter Cake is pretty simple to make and is sure to be winner in the eyes of children, especially surrounded by the colorful sugary marshmallows. You can make it any size with any flavor of cake, box or from scratch, and can use any color Bunny PEEPS, we used the yellow and pink ones, you will need 22 for an 8 inch cake.

How to make a PEEPS Easter Cake.

This PEEPS Easter Cake is made with a yellow cake base and is decorated with green frosting piped with a Wilton tip #233. If you don’t have a Wilton cake decorating tip, you can just spread the green frosting on the top of the cake using a knife or spatula. Coconut tinted with green food coloring could also be used as the “grass” on top of this PEEPS Easter Cake. Spread the frosting around the sides of the cake which will act like glue and then press the PEEPS onto the side in any pattern of your choice.

Top the Easter Cake with additional marshmallow PEEPS, jelly beans or M&Ms.

Recipe Notes

To "glue" the bunny on the side, I found it easiest to place a little white frosting in a small zip-lock bag, then cut a small hole in the corner so I could make a thin line on the back of the bunny
