Easter Cake Recipe

I am positive that you will enjoy eating these mouth-watering Easter Cakes! Notwithstanding the fact that your kids will think you are the best mom and cook in the world for making them! They look really difficult to create, but it is actually quite easy since you are using a cake box and a tub of whipped frosting. You can use your favourite cake box and frosting. A treat for kids of all ages!

Ingredients

1 box cake mix (and the ingredients it requires)

1 tub whipped frosting (and flavour you want)

24 oz white chocolate

Sprinkles

2 tbs of vegetable oil

Let cakes cool on wired rack for about 10 min. Then run a knife around the edges and flip cake pans over so that cakes are resting on the wired rack.

You can continue onto the next step or refrigerate the cakes for about 15 min to make the cake easier to cut and handle.
