Each year, the kids and I look forward to baking for Easter. Last year, we made cupcakes with Peeps sitting in nests filled with candy eggs. This year, I have seen so many variations of cakes with pastel colored M & Ms and an assortment of Peeps marshmallow candy on Pinterest and Facebook, that this was on my list to make with the kids this year. Today we made the cake. From start to finish, working with my 8 year old and 5 year old helpers, it took about 2 hours. This cake may not be perfect, but it sure is filled with love and the kids were thrilled with their accomplishment.
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 can of white colored frosting
1 bag of plain pastel colored M & Ms
Assorted marshmallow Peeps and bunnies
Prepare cake according to the box’s directions. Let it cool completely.
Frost the entire cake.
Arrange the M & Ms on top of the cake in a mosaic-like pattern. The kids loved this part!
Attach the Peeps and bunnies around the cake. Adhere with extra frosting if necessary.

Beautiful job.. I'll bet the kids just loved not only making it but eating it.
Poor kiddos, they have to wait now until Easter! I think there just might be a few M and Ms missing until then.
Wow! It's beautiful.
Thanks! How many more days 'til your babies arrive?
