It’s not Easter without a themed cake! Rather than deal with a fussy animal-shaped pan, bake two round cake layers with an 8-inch diameter and let a little food styling and frosting do the work. You can use a box cake mix make a favorite recipe from scratch, depending on the level of effort you want to put in. This method can also be used for the Carrot Easter Cake and Easter Bunny Cake. 


  • 2pre-baked (8-inch) round cake layers
  • 4 cups vanilla frosting
  • Pastel food colorings

How to Make It

Step 1

Assemble cake layers on a flat surface. Place 1 cake layer on top of the other cake layer, so the sides of the cake meet, but there is a 2- to 3-inch border on the bottom of the lower cake. With a small knife, carve out the 2- to 3-inch crescent moon-shaped border using the top layer as a tracing guide. Place the moon-shaped piece below the non-cut cake layer to resemble an oval egg shape. Trim the remaining cut cake piece to resemble a small egg.

Step 2

Frost the tops of the eggs with frosting, reserving 1 cup of frosting to pipe on cake. Divide reserved frosting among 4 small bowls, and dye with pastel food colorings. Fill piping bags with colored frostings, and pipe fun designs on cakes.
