Peeps Sunflower Cake
I love PEEPS! This would be a fun cake to make for Easter. I was thinking instead of using all those chocolate bits that I would use a star decorating tip from Wilton to decorate the center of the sunflower. Then top with a few of the chocolate bits.
Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
2 cans (16 ounces each) chocolate frosting
19 yellow chick Peeps candies
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using two greased and waxed paper-lined 9-in. round baking pans. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely; carefully remove waxed paper.
Level tops of cakes. Spread frosting between layers and over the top and sides of cake.
Without separating Peeps and curving slightly to fit, arrange chicks around edge of cake for sunflower petals. For sunflower seeds, arrange chocolate chips in center of cake. Yield: 12 servings.
