Who invented Peeps?? Because whoever they are, they are a genious! Seriously, who doesn’t love a marshmallow shaped like a chick covered with brightly colored sugar? And do you know what’s even better than Peeps? What could possibly be better than Peeps? A Peeps cake! That’s right! I am going to show you how to make a PEEPS CAKE!!! For Easter!!! Are you excited? ‘Cause I certainly am! Yesterday my grandma helped me bake this awesome Peeps cake! We used a cake mix for white cake, mostly because cake mix is way easier and a lot faster than making it from scratch, but it’s still just as fun!
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 3 egg whites
- And of course, the cake mix (DUH!)
Directions (copied from the package of the cake mix)
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fareinheight if you have a shiny metal or glass pan or 325 degrees Fareinheight for a dark or nonstick pan. Grease bottom only of a 13″ by 9″ pan or bottom and sides of all other pans.
2. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, and egg whites on low speed for 30 seconds, then on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally (batter will be lumpy).
3. Pour into pan
(If you can’t tell, we dyed the batter pink.)
4. Bake as directed in the chart or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
4. Cool for 10 mintutes before removing from the pan. Cool completely before frosting.
I can’t believe the directions end right before the most fun part: DECORATING!!!
Here’s the frosting we used:
We dyed it green for Easter!
First we frosted the cake, which we actually decided to make with two layers.
And of course, there had to be Peeps, because it was, after all, a Peeps cake!
The finished Peeps cake!!!
P.S. I ignored the notice not to eat the batter 😊
