Peeps Cake and Cupcakes

Mar 28, 2012

As soon as I dis­cov­ered this “Peeps Sun­flower Cake” on Pin­ter­est I knew I was going to make it with or with­out a kid. I’m so glad I have two lit­tle nieces that are ready and wait­ing to make any­thing with me. I had a blast watch­ing them cre­ate their Peeps Sun­flower Cake and Peeps Bun­ny Cup­cakes. And by the looks of these pho­tos, they had lots of fun too.

To make this a bit sim­pler I pur­chased both the choco­late cake and cup­cakes from the bak­ery already iced. This way all Made­lyn and Bel­lie had to do was dec­o­rate and I did not have to bake both a cake and an entire batch of cup­cakes. Made­lyn cre­at­ed her Peeps Sun­flower Cake by fol­low­ing the instruc­tions on the taste of home web­site. Click on the “Peeps Sun­flower Cake” link at the top for their instruc­tions.

Since Made­lyn was mak­ing the Peeps Sun­flower Cake I need­ed some­thing for Bel­lie to dec­o­rate so I came up with this Peeps Cup­cake Idea. Bel­lie dec­o­rat­ed her 6 pre-iced cup­cakes with 1/2 a cup of coconut I dyed green with food col­or­ing (this was the grass), 1 Bag of M&M’s Speck-tac­u­lar Eggs Milk Choco­late (3, 4 or 5 can­dy eggs for the top of each cup­cake, the amount depends on how many she felt like putting on at that moment) and 1 Pack­age each of Peeps Bun­nies in Pink and Pur­ple. You will also need 6 tooth­picks.

All Bel­lie did to dec­o­rate her cup­cakes was put a lay­er of the green coconut on top of the icing, placed 3, 4, or 5 can­dy eggs on top of the coconut grass, then placed a tooth­pick in the bot­tom of a pink or pur­ple Peeps Bun­ny and stuck the Peeps Bun­ny in the cen­ter of the cup­cake. Super sim­ple and so fun! She was so proud of her cup­cakes and gave away all 6 that she made… she did not save one for her­self. Of course no one could then eat theirs because her ges­ture was just so sweet.

So if you need a super fast, fun and sim­ple East­er treat think about giv­ing these a try.

Sweet­est Hugs!
