If I Knew You Were Coming, I’d’ve Baked a Peep Cake

The cake I baked for Easter wasn’t homemade, natural, organic, gluten free, sugar free, or even low fat.


Shamefully, I used a box of Better Crocker yellow cake mix to form two 8 inch round cakes, two packages of yellow Peeps, two tubs of chocolate icing and a bag of milk chocolate chips to create this sunflower Peep cake .  Nope, there was nothing healthy about it and it was damn good.  In fact, it was so good that I ate a slice for lunch the next day.

After I finished this cake, my oldest daughter suggested I pipe on some green icing to make a stem and a leaf on the side of the cake which was such a cute idea, but I was too lazy to mess with icing and a piping bag.  I’ll try that the next time I make this cute Peep cake.

Also, I think next time I make this cake, I’ll use white icing, white chocolate chips and pink or purple Peeps so the cake has a brighter springtime Easter flavor appearance.




Now link up and see what treats If I Could Escape and Gone Bananas are serving for this week’s Friday Food Fight.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. That cake is super cute!! My kids would gobble this down for sure. And I LOVE dark chocolate and marshmallow so I probably would too. I’ll have to make one next year.

    OMG… that looks so totally delicious! I love everything about it. Chocolate, cake and PEEPS!!! They are my favorite, I even buy an extra package to let go stale because I love eating them stale.
    I love your idea of using the lighter colors to make it more spring like, lovely!
