How to Make It

Step 1

Make 2-layer cake. Frost cake with your favorite frosting. Place jimmies in a medium bowl. Immediately pack jimmies around edges of cake, allowing excess to fall back into bowl as you make your way around cake. Place on a serving platter or cake stand.

Spoon additional frosting into a ziplock bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal bag. Snip off a corner of bag. Pipe a line of frosting where cake meets plate; place Sixlets around bottom edge.

Step 3

Place toothpicks in bottom of Peeps; fasten Peeps to cake in a circle. Pipe a line of frosting around bottom ring of Peeps; place additional Sixlets between each Peep.
