I'm making this for Easter:

Isn't it adorable? It's a Sunflower Peep Cake and it is as easy to make as it is cute:

1 Cake Mix (any flavor works, I bought chocolate)
2 Cans Chocolate Frosting
19 Yellow Chick Peeps Candies
1 1/2 Cups Chocolate Chips ( I got the Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips ~ YUM!)

Prepare and bake cake according to directions on box, using 2 greased 9 inch round baking pans. Cool for at least 10 minutes before removing cake from pans to wire rack to cool completely. Level tops of cakes.

Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake.

Without separating Peeps, and curving slightly to fit, arrange chicks around the edge of the cake for sunflower petals.

For sunflower seeds, arrange chocolate chips in center of the cake.

Yield 12 servings.
