Polka-Dot Egg Cake

Yield 16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 bag M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies Bunny Mix
  • 1 bag SNICKERS® Brand Minis Bars, optional
  • 1 box (18.25-oz.) classic yellow cake mix
  • 1 box (3-oz.) instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cans (16-oz. each) vanilla frosting
  • Yellow, orange, blue purple, pink and green food coloring
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, optional
  • 2 egg-shaped cake pans
  • 5 resealable plastic sandwich bags
  • Spatula

How to Make It

  1. Prep time: 15 min.
    Baking time: 35-40 min.
    Decoration time: 25 min.
    Difficulty: Moderate

  2. Prepare cake mix, with instant pudding, according to pound cake recipe on package instructions. If desired, fold 2 cups of SNICKERS® Brand Minis Bars into batter before pouring it into greased and floured pans.

  3. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove and cool completely. Remove cakes from pans and trim tops to make level.

  4. Spoon 1/8 cup of frosting into 5 small bowls. Tint each bowl a separate color: green, purple, blue, orange and pink. Spoon frosting into separate resealable plastic bags with small corner snipped. Tint remaining frosting yellow.

  5. Press both sides of egg cake together, sandwiching 1/2-cup of yellow frosting between layers. Cut 1/2-inch off larger end of egg cake so that it can stand up. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  6. Frost entire cake with remaining yellow frosting. Pipe plump 3/4-inch dots all over the cake with assorted colored frosting. Place one M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies Bunny Mix in center of each dot. If you like, tint coconut green and sprinkle around base of cake.
