*Sunflower Peep Cake*

Birthday sunflower cake

All day today it has been raining. Overcast, cloudy and rainy. For once, I actually did not mind it at all. It is the stay at home in your pajamas and eat warm food kind of rainy day. Thinking of what to post, I decided upon something opposite of a rainy day. I made this sunflower cake using Peeps not to long ago and thought it would add some “sun” to the rain! My little sisters Birthday was coming up and I thought this would be the perfect cake to make her! It was very easy and tasted delicious!

Added a couple candles and ta da!


  • 1 Package (18 1/4oz) yellow cake mix
  • 2 cans (16oz. each) German Chocolate frosting (I used this because it is our favorite frosting. Original chocolate works just as well)
  • 19 yellow Peeps candies
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Prepare cake mix and bake according to package directions, using 2 greased 9in. round baking pans. Cool for 10 minutes before removing layers from pans. Place on wire racks and cool completely.
  2. Level tops of cakes. Spread frosting between cake layers, over top and sides.
  3. Without separating Peeps and curving slightly to fit, arrange Peeps around edge of cake to form petals.
  4. For the sunflower seeds, arrange chocolate chips in center of cake

Easy and adorable! How cute would this be with flowers along the bottom or Easter eggs for Easter?!
