Peeps Sunflower Cake

Peep Sunflower Cake1 Brighten up your Easter Celebration with a Peeps Sunflower Cake
Peeps are everywhere right now and in every color imaginable. So while they’re here, I’m enjoying finding fun ways to use them {did you see our PEEP STUFFED BROWNIES} What better way than a Peep Sunflower Cake? It’s bright, happy and sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. This is a quick and easy dessert that even the kids can decorate on their own.
I made a mini version by using  4″ spring form pans, pictured above {and then just baked extra cupcakes for the kids with the leftover batter}, but you can easily make this in a regular sized cake pan for a more dramatic presentation.
You can choose whatever flavor cake you prefer. I went with a Devil’s Food, cut the cakes in half, and then spread homemade LEMON CURD between the layers for a special surprise. (I didn’t add the lemon curd)
Peeps Sunflower Cake
What you’ll need:
1 box cake mix {flavor of your choice, plus ingredients to make cake}
2 containers of chocolate frosting
chocolate chips {enough to fill center of cake, I used a combination of regular sized and mini chocolate chips}
2 packages of yellow peeps
What to do:
1. Bake cake{s} according to package directions. Allow to cool completely.
2. Place bottom layer onto serving tray, spread a layer of icing on top. Top with second layer of cake. Continue icing until cake is complete.
3. Arrange peeps around the edge of the bottom layer. Place chocolate chips in center in circular pattern.
