I made this Easter Cake last year. It was so much fun and very easy to make. Kids and adults will enjoy making and eating this one!

I made the cake in two round pans, let them cool then I frosted the top of one cake and placed the other one on top. Then I frosted the entire cake. I colored coconut with green food coloring and added the candy eggs on top. Then I finished it off with the peeps all around the cake.

That is all there is to it and it looks like a bakery made it! There is no decorating with the frosting at all. If you don’t have a cake plate like mine that has a lip and helped to hold the peeps in, use some frosting to glue the peeps to the cake. Simple, simple and simple!!!!
