Spring is here (really it is!) and so the Peeps have come out too! My dad is quite a Peep lover (although they have to be “aged”- aka stale and chewy! LOL!). I have seen this Sunflower Peeps cake online for a couple of years now and thought it was time to make my own. It really does turn out so cute. I have a “doctored” cake mix recipe I love to use (everyone thinks it’s scratch!) and found a great new homemade chocolate icing recipe too. So it really is quite easy to make.
Here are a few tips though to help you avoid the “Pinterest Fail”
- Make sure to flour the pans well and run a knife around the rim of the pan when they come out of the oven. Will help them come out of pan easier
- Don’t skip the sifting of the sugar and cocoa for the icing. Really does help it get a smoother consistency.
- This is the most important tip! Place the Peeps almost completely on the top of the cake. Unless you have concrete icing… they will fall off. Helping you avoid this…
