Celebrate Easter with this Easy Cake Recipes for Kids : Easter Egg Cake
I made the coolest thing today! I made a cake…inside of an EGG! Like, a real egg, how cool is that? I love finding new and fun things for me and my 4 year old to do, and when I saw the Easter Egg Cake (on Pinterest of course!) I just knew we had to give it a try. Now, let me say, I am NO Martha Stewart, so it’s not perfect, but we had a great time making it, and it is super cute. We are going to make some more to leave out for the Easter Bunny!
Here is what you will need to make an Easter Egg Cake:
- A dozen eggs (I suggest either Large or Jumbo)
- Cake Mix (I don’t suggest the strawberry we used, or funfetti, or any other kind of cake with small bits in it, they tend to get stuck in the syringe)
- White Icing
- Food coloring
- A muffin tin
- a Syringe
Here is how you make an Easter Egg Cake:
Step 1: Color your eggs using food coloring and vinegar, or you can get an Egg Dyeing kit if you want 🙂
Step 2: Take a push pin, and poke a tiny hole on the pointed part of the egg, then slowly chip away at the hole until it is big enough to fit the tip of the syringe in the hole.
Step 3: Poke a smaller hole in the other side of the egg, and then “Blow out” the egg, blowing through the small hole until all the inside of the eggs are out. (Save 3 of the egg insides for your cake mix!)
Step 4: Line the inside of the muffin tin with foil, creating little pockets for the eggs to sit in so they don’t roll around in the over while cooking.
Step 5: Now this is the fun part, you will use your syringe to inject the cake batter into the egg via the hole you created. This part took me quite a bit of time, the little pieces of “strawberry” from the cake kept getting stuck in the tip! So this is why I recommend using a plain cake batter! Make sure only to fill up the eggs about 1/2 way with batter (You can check this by shining a flashlight onto the egg so you can see inside it)
Step 6: Once all the eggs are filled, put them in the muffin tin and cook for 18 minuets at 375 degrees.
Step 7: Take the eggs out of the oven, and let cool. There will most likely be some cake running over the egg, which is fine, just scrape it off with a fork!
Step 8: Find something cute for your eggs to sit on. If you have egg cups that would look great, I didn’t have any, so I made little cakes and coloring some icing green to look like grass for the eggs to sit on.
Here is my finish Easter Egg Cake:
I used a little bit of icing to make the eggs look like they had yolks haha! A great bonus to making the cake in the eggs is that the cake was super moist! This whole project took about an hour to complete, and we had such a good time making it, I hope you like it too! Don’t forget to check out our other Easter fun on our Easter Page.
