Are you ready for Easter?
Do you have your menu planned? More importantly, what are you planning for dessert? Today I'm sharing with an easy and fun recipe for Easter Mini Bundt Cakes from a cake mix.
It doesn't get any easier than this recipe...well I suppose you could have a guest bring dessert, but it's always nice to bake something. These mini bundt cakes can be made for any occasion. They're not just for Easter.

I decided to use mini peanut butter chocolate eggs to top the mini bundt cakes but you could use other types of candy or even sprinkles would be fun too. I'm going to make this recipe again on Sunday to celebrate my mother's birthday. I'll use fun sprinkles to top the mini cakes instead of the chocolate eggs.

This is the mini bundt pan that I used for this recipe and for so many other recipes. It makes really cute mini cakes that are a fun twist on cupcakes.
Use a cookie scoop to help get the cake batter into the pan without making a huge mess.
I baked my mini cakes for 10 minutes. You need to check them after 8 minutes or so of baking. I like to set a timer because life happens sometimes, right? You can see my hubby helped himself to a few before I was able to decorate them.
Now, here's the trick to getting these mini bundt cakes to lay flat. Take a serrated knife and trim the bubble part of the cake. Consider that your "treat" as you decorate the cakes!

I used store-purchased cream cheese frosting too! Another easy trick is to warm the icing up in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds...be careful not to overdo it! You'll have a liquid mess on your hands if you do. I always melt icing or chocolate using the Silicone Prep Bowl. It makes it easier to pour the melted items since the bowls are squeezable...if that's the right word.
You could use a spoon to drizzle the icing on, but I love using my Drizzler Tool from Pampered Chef. It's made of silicone too so clean up is amazing. I've used other icing tools and cleaning them was a nightmare. This tool rinses easily and then I put it in the dishwasher.
I chose to toast the coconut, but you really don't need to.
They came out great. I made a few with purple icing too.
