Ah, Peeps. You either love them or hate them. I tend to lean more toward the side of hating them, but each and every spring I buy a box and eat a few of the fluffy little marshmallow animals. They remind me of my childhood and the Easter baskets I used to run around the house trying to find.
Since today is the first day of spring, I thought I’d post the cute and EASY sunflower Peep cake that I made. I think cakes are notoriously tedious – they can be tough to make entirely from scratch and decorating them is usually fun, but so time consuming. This cake is different – so easy and fast to make!
Peeps Sunflower Cake
1 box cake mix, your choice (plus the ingredients for the mix, such as eggs and vegetable oil)
16-18 yellow Peeps
Mini chocolate chips
Chocolate frosting (store-brought or you can make your own)
1. Make the cake according to the box directions and frost with chocolate frosting.
2. Place the yellow Peeps around the outside edge of the cake.
3. Fill the center with chocolate chips – using more mini-chips as you get toward the center of the cake.
That’s it! An easy and adorable spring cake!
