Easter Egg Cake

Use this cake decorating tutorial to learn how to make a quick and easy Easter egg cake. Great for kids Easter parties too and a great way to use up all the Easter egg candies.

Just like the Peeps cake that I shared last week, this Easter egg cake is also very EASY to make and uses seasonal candies.

Best of all, kids can help and you know how much I LOVE that!

I know there are many Easter cake ideas and Easter egg cake recipe ideas out there but this one is one of the easiest!

You DON’T even need an Easter egg cake pan for this chocolate Easter egg cake tutorial.

This is a really SMALL chocolate cake (about 4 inches), frosted in green buttercream icing.

The sides of the cake are decorated with CUTE bunny and duck shaped sprinkles. I found these sprinkles at Target but I have also seen them at some dollar stores.

The top of this cake is covered in an Oreo cookie nest and speckled Easter egg candies!

You can make nests with pretzels or even cereal BUT I like Oreos better.
