Fun Peep Easter Cake or Cookie Ideas

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

A childhood favorite and through adulthood, I love my peeps.

They're such a festive Easter treat and I love using them to decorate with!


The Easter Holiday tables always bring a smile to everyone's face that sees my peep fest!


You can get as creative as you like.


Cakes, cookies, cupcakes with just a few fun ideas for the kids and young at heart.

I even make a pretty cool adult drink!


You will love these treats and it's easy for the kids to help and great family Easter project.


Get creative, I love coming up with new ideas every year!

Peeps are Fun for Easter




I just love decorating with peeps.


The kids love them too, they're as much to eat as they are to decorate with especially on cake.s


I made a coconut cream poke cake above add some peeps, malted milk mini eggs, and the plastic eggs are filled with a candy surprise.


I already know the little ones will love this cake.


The basket is all cake, I used a small bundt pan, did a basket weave with buttercream frosting and use tin foil wrapped with a pretty ribbon for the handle.


You can get very creative, just think of the big smiles you will get on Easter Sunday if you bring a simple festive cake to the party.

Cookies and Cake Recipes



I love my Coconut Cream Poke cake for Easter.


It's an easy cake to make either homemade or using a cake mix.


Another favorite cake is homemade from scratch is Grandma's Cake, it's just simple pantry ingredients and comes out great!


You can substitute the frosting for whipped cream and still make an awesome peep cake, however, the basket must be done in buttercream to hold it's shaped.


Our cookie favorite recipe is using Grandma's Chocolate Spice Cookie Recipe, these
cookies hold up great for frosting and decorating.


If you prefer a vanilla, lemon or even anise cookie flavor, try Grandma's Wedding Tray cookies.

Where Ever You Put Peeps



I know what you are thinking, I am obsessed with peeps!


Well, I have to admit, even I smile when I put them on anything.

Festive and Delicious!



I love them in drinks, on cakes, cookies, in bowls, yes, I do agree, I am obsessed with their cuteness!


Easter wouldn't be fun and festive without them.


I do have a confession to make, I love peeps!

Preparation:



Tinting the coconut: In a mason jar or plastic ziplock bag, add 1/2 cup coconut with 2 drops of green food coloring and 1 tablespoon water. Shake and let sit.


Make any kind of cupcakes to package instructions or 13 x 9 sheet cake.


Bake your favorite cookie recipe or use a store bought kind.


Cool and decorate.


Assembly Ideas:



I use around 1 cup canned frosting to 1 drop of green food coloring mix evenly.


Frost the tops of cookies and cupcakes or 9 inch round cake, with green frosting. Pile on the tinted coconut. Place two or three jelly beans on top. Stand up 1 peep on the cupcakes or cookies on the back of cupcake of cookies setting into the frosting.


Note: For the 13 x 9 sheet cake, you will need a small bundt cake for the basket to place in the middle of the cake.


Foil wrapped in ribbon for the handle. Filled plastic eggs. Canned frosting or whipped cream. Tinted coconut and mini malted Easter eggs. The basket weave is made with a Wilton tip and frosting. Use any kind of candy sprinkles on top.


You can also dip half the peeps into the chocolate and then use a lollipop stick to insert and make sucker peeps
