Easter Egg Cake

When I shared my Peeps cake last week, I PROMISED all of you another Easter cake with Easter egg candies.

Well, I am sharing that cake TODAY!

Just like the Peeps cake, 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 loveeee that! 🙂

This is a really small chocolate cake (dimensions are 4×5), frosted  in green colored buttercream icing.

The sides of the cake are scattered with very CUTE bunny and duck shaped sprinkles.


I found these sprinkles at Target but I have also seen them at some dollar stores.

Anyways, 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.

I mean, who doesn’t? Right?! 😉

To make this Easter egg cake, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:

Chocolate cake
Green buttercream icing
Easter sprinkles
Crushed Oreos
Colorful mini easter egg candies

This is a small cake with dimension of only about 4×5 but you can apply this tutorial on a bigger cake easily.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Bake your cake and frost it it in green buttercream icing.
Stick some Easter sprinkles randomly along the sides of the cake.
