Easter Mini Cakes Recipe

I know I said I was done with Easter, but Easter Mini Cakes!

Easter Mini Cakes are easy and delightful, and will brighten up any Easter brunch or lunch spread. Or you can celebrate after the egg hunt!

I feel like these are pretty important and need to be shared. And if you’re wondering, no, I’m not making these over my maternity leave. I mean, who has time to bake with a newborn and a toddler? I certainly don’t. This blog has kept running because I set it up to keep running. I’m here and there, always precise with the organization. You should see how I set up the baby’s makeshift nursery as well as making sure Rider has enough diapers for a month or two, both babies will have wipes, and that they both have spring wardrobes. I even pre-made vegetable wraps for Scarlet’s lunches. Cassidy wrote out an entire list of how to care for the kids, the dogs, the cat, the chickens, the house. Know this, though. Writing is my lifeblood and I can do it in labor, while nursing, in my head in the shower, while nursing, while eating, and while nursing.

Get it? You’ll see me here and there, because updating this blog is like taking cleansing breaths.

Easter Mini Cakes Recipe:

What You Need:

1 box, 16.25 oz, white cake mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
Pink, yellow, and green food coloring (we used Wilton Color Gels)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Easter egg candies (we used M&Ms)
Easter sprinkles

cake mix ingredients

What You Do:

1 – First, grease a large sheet pan (13″x18″) with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

2 – Then, preheat oven to 350.

3 – Prepare cake according to package directions.

4 – Divide batter into three separate bowls and color each bowl a different color: pink, yellow and green.

5 – Spread each color into one third of the prepared sheet pan, and then tap to even batter out.

6 – Bake for 15 minutes or until center is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

7 – Cool completely.

8 – To make whipping cream, add heavy whipping cream, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and beat well until stiff peaks form, about 3-5 minutes.

9 – Place into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.

10 – Use a cookie cutter to cut each color of cake into a round; you should get 8 rounds of each color.

11 – Place one round on a serving platter or plate and pipe 3 stars of cream onto the top.

12 – Place a second color round cake on the top and repeat the process, adding 3 dollops of whipping cream in the center.

13 – Top with Easter candy eggs and sprinkles.

14 – Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Makes 8 small cakes.
