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!

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.
Check out the Video for the GREAT tool I used to decorate my Easter Egg Cakes:
Drizzle the melted frosting on top of the mini Easter egg cakes and then add sprinkles.
Place in pretty cupcake liners and set on a platter to serve.
