With Easter coming up, I just had to share a picture & recipe for my adorable Easter Egg cake. I was checking out at Walmart & saw a bag of big Easter egg shaped marshmallows of different colors & just had to have them. This is what I came up with for our Senior Citizen's monthly luncheon. Enjoy!

They have so many cute seasonal marshmallows now. I sometimes make a big sheet cake for our luncheons & put the marshmallows on the top to keep the foil from sticking to the frosting. Cute & works great!

How to Make Easter Egg Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Mix cake mix, eggs, oil, milk and pudding with hand mixer until well-blended.
    2. Pour into a Bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. With my oven it only took about 50 minutes.
    3. When done, cool cake a bit on a wire rack then turn out onto a cake plate.
    FROSTING
    Mix together pudding mix and milk. It will thicken quickly so add the undrained pineapple before it sets up too much & mix well. Fold in cool whip & nuts and add food coloring to achieve the color you want. Frost cake including the hole in the middle. Put marshmallows on sides & top as you prefer for decorations.

    You can actually use any flavor of cake & pudding mix & frosting to change it up for different seasons & occasions. I did a pumpkin Bundt cake with pumpkin marshmallows in the fall & it was really cute.
