Happy Easter everyone! We all know the best part about Easter is the candy right? Just kidding! This cake is so fun and easy to make and you can even get your kids involved in the decorating. The pastel M&M’s and Peeps marshmallows are just so gosh darn cute, aren’t they?
There was a cake at my grocery store that inspired me to make this. The cake was a two layer cake with marshmallow peeps around it and M&M’s on top. They wanted 20.00 for the cake too, and my only thought was that is way too expensive! I made this cake for under 10.00 using boxed cake mix. hope you like it!
Do any of you go to the grocery store the day after a Holiday to get discounted candy? Sometimes I do, but then again that leaves me with temptations in the house and I don’t want to be eating a whole bag of candy.
How to make Peeps Cake (The Cheap Way)!
- Make cake according to package using 2 8 in round cake pans.
- Once the cake is cooled (completely) frost the two layers. The reason why my cake collapsed was that it was still warm in the middle. I was really impatient and wanted to frost my cake right away. Also, cake mix from the box can be VERY moist sometimes. I’m no cake baking expert (and that is why you see a lot of recipes on my blog that calls for cake mix) but there are many sites that will give helpful hints for taking a box of cake mix up a couple of notches. Do a google search for tips to make your cake mix taste homemade.
- Arrange the peeps every other color around the cake. I did a pink and yellow Peeps. Top the cake with M&M’s and enjoy!
