easter egg cake
This past week I noticed my local grocery store had Easter Egg shaped cakes “on sale” for $19.99. I am going to show you how to make an easy & beautiful cake for less than $3.00.
You will need 1 box of cake mix & 1 can of frosting. Of course you can make your own of both the cake & frosting, I just did not have the ingredients on hand to make my own frosting. And when you are in a crowded, hectic grocery store on a holiday weekend with two children, it is impossible to remember what you need to make “homemade” frosting.
I used my Pampered Chef Classic Batter Bowl as my mold. Mix your cake mix & it’s ingredients — I like to substitute water with milk — in a separate bowl. Then transfer to your greased Batter Bowl. Cook in a 350 degree oven for about an hour, or until a cake tester comes out clean through the entire center. Invert on your Cooling Rack and let your cake cool.
Using a Serrated or Bread Knife, trim off the top to make it flat & then slice down the middle. Slice & trim so your cake it is flat & “egg shaped”.
Using your Spreader, spread frosting in between the cake halves to act as glue. Frosting your cake with your Spreader. Add some food coloring of your choice & then decorate with your Easy Accent Decorator.
Decorate to your liking! I used pastel sprinkles, jelly beans & chocolate bunnies as per my kid’s requests. Now you have a great Easter dessert and table centerpiece!
Enjoy your easter egg cake!!!
