How to Make EASTER EGG 4 layer CAKE....1953. .from a box mix


  • 1Bake cake mix using directions on the cake mix box. Using 2 -8 inch round layer cake pans.

    Make easy chocolate frosting from recipe that is on the back of Bakers Unsweetened chocolate.
    You can use your own recipe,or buy a can of frosting.
  • 2When cake is cool,cut each cake layer across in two,
    about 1/4 inch off center. See directions picture.
    This will make 2 large and 2 smaller pieces.

    1. Place these 4 pieces together with frosting between them. With the smaller pieces on the outside.
    2. Stand them upright,on a cake plate with the cut sides down.
    3. Trim the outside pieces at the top outer edges to help round off edges...for an egg shape.
    4. Then trim off outside pieces,slicing diagonally
    to give cake an oval shape at the bottom.
  • 3Cover the whole mound with the remaining frosting, filling in to make an egg shape. Decorate with extra white and tinted frosting, and jelly beans.
    Tint coconut green for the grass at the bottom of cake.
    To serve cut across the cake as shown so each person gets a 4 layer slice.

    Be sure to take a picture...and hopefully you will share one with me....
    A Blessed Easter to all.....Hugs, nancy
