Recipe: How to Make Adorable Mini Easter Egg Cakes


Mini Easter Egg Cakes | Adorable Easter Dessert | Spring Dessert Recipe from Walking on Sunshine

Easter is less than two weeks away! 

If you're hosting Easter dinner this year, you need to get your menu planned.  I have the perfect dessert for you with these Adorable Mini Easter Egg Cakes! 

These mini cakes turned out even cuter than I thought they would.  And they couldn't be more easy because I used a cake mix and store-purchased frosting.

I used a box of vanilla cake mix and divided the batter between two 9X13 baking dishes.  But I think a boxed pound cake would work great too.  And if you're really stressed for time, you can use a store-purchased pound cake if you can't bake either a yellow cake mix or a pound cake mix.  

These Mini Easter Egg Cakes are going to look so cute with the rest of your desserts for Easter! 

Check out the Easy Recipe! 

Divide the batter between two baking dishes. Yes!  You want to use parchment paper to help you get the cakes out of the pans easily.

Allow the cake to cool and then using an egg cookie cutter, cut out the shapes.  I found dipping the cookie cutter in flour helped tremendously.

Place the mini egg cakes on a baking rack that is on top of a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Place the frosting in a microwaveable bowl and then start pouring it over the egg cakes.  You'll need to do this a few times to make sure the entire cake is covered.  I used a small spatula to make sure the sides of the cakes were covered as well.

Let the egg cakes dry completely before decorating.

Let's decorate the Mini Easter Egg Cakes! 

Choose your favorite color frosting and heat it up in the microwave.  I like to use this drizzler tool from Pampered Chef to drizzle melted chocolate or melted frosting over the tops of the cakes.

Mini Easter Egg Cakes

These Mini Easter Egg Cakes are so cute and perfect to serve for dessert for any spring occasion.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box vanilla cake mix - 15.25 ounce
  • 2 containers of icing - 16 ounce size each. I chose cream cheese icing and a vibrant purple icing to decorate.
  • sprinkles to decorate

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the back of the box.
  2. Divide the batter evenly and pour into two 9 X 13 size baking pans that have been lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Checking frequently to make sure you don't overcook the cakes. Remember, you're not baking ONE cake as the instructions on the box says so it shouldn't take as long.
  4. Let the cakes cool.
  5. Using the parchment paper, gently remove the cakes from the pans and place on a cutting board.
  6. Using an egg shaped cookie cutter, begin cutting out the shapes for the cakes. You may need to dip the cookie cutter in flour to help cut a clean cut.
  7. Place the mini egg cakes on a baking rack that is on top of a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil.
  8. Place half the cream cheese icing in a microwavable safe bowl and heat for 10 seconds, stir and then heat again for another 10 seconds. The frosting should be the consistency of a pourable glaze.
  9. Immediately pour the icing over the egg cakes making sure to thoroughly cover each egg. You will need to heat up more icing and if you run out of icing before the egg cakes are completely covered, just scrape up any icing off of the tray beneath the baking rack and reheat and continue pouring on top of the egg cakes.
  10. Once the mini egg cakes are covered, let them dry completely. I placed mine in the refrigerator uncovered overnight.
  11. Heat up the colored icing and using the Pampered Chef Drizzler Tool, decorate the Mini Easter Egg Cakes. Add the sprinkles immediately before the colored icing dries.
  12. To serve, place each Mini Easter Egg Cake in a colorful cupcake liner so your guests will be able to help themselves easily.
