I made this Easter Cake last year. It was so much fun and very easy to make. Kids and adults will enjoy making and eating this one!
I made the cake in two round pans, let them cool then I frosted the top of one cake and placed the other one on top. Then I frosted the entire cake. I colored coconut with green food coloring and added the candy eggs on top. Then I finished it off with the peeps all around the cake.
That is all there is to it and it looks like a bakery made it! There is no decorating with the frosting at all. If you don’t have a cake plate like mine that has a lip and helped to hold the peeps in, use some frosting to glue the peeps to the cake. Simple, simple and simple!!!!

such a gorgeous and colorful cake, nicely done!
Thank you I loved making it and it was so easy!
The green coconut is a wonderful idea indeed:)
What was nice is I put it on the frosting after the frosting dried so the kids could just brush it off if they didn’t want it.
Oh so adorable!! 💕🐰
Thank you Patty!
How fun is this cake. This is a perfect Easter dinner dessert.
The kids loved it!
Looks yummy 🙂
It is for sure! Thanks!
Flashy – a temptation but it is Easter time ! thank you – amitiés 🙂
You’re welcome and thanks for commenting!
That is great! I wonder if the edible grass would do as well as coconut.
I let the frosting dry and then put the coconut on. That way anyone that didn’t want the coconut could just brush it right off since it didn’t stick. So yes, edible grass would work if you let the frosting dry first too! Great idea!
I’m not a coconut fan and I think I’ve seen edible grass. I could make this easy! It’s a great idea 😀
Go for it because it was fun and so easy yet looks great!
Gah! I love peeps!
Me too I even dehydrated them last year after Easter when the went on sale. Now that’s a treat! They crunch and are delicious!!
