Are you looking for a super easy, but really cute cake to make for Easter? Or an upcoming birthday? You’ve got to try this Peeps Sunflower Cake!
I’ve been seeing Peeps everywhere I shop lately, so I thought a cake made to look like a sunflower using Peeps would be really cute! To others, this cake may look like you spent a long time creating it, but it’s actually really, really easy!
Here’s how to make a Peeps Sunflower Cake:
- 1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
- 3 Eggs
- 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 cup Water
- 1 cup softened Butter
- 3 1/2 cup Icing Sugar
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 3 tsp Milk
- 2 packages of Yellow Peeps Chicks
- 1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Make 2 single layer cakes according to the cake box directions.
Allow to cool completely.
Cream butter, vanilla, cocoa and icing sugar in a mixing bowl.
Slowly add the milk until your desired consistency of icing is reached.
Ice the cakes and stack. The more level the cake, the better the effect.
Place the Peeps chicks around the edge of the cake facing inward (it will take 19 of the chicks). Do not separate them.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips in the middle like seeds on a sunflower.
