Peeps Sunflower Cake {Recipe} - Outside The Box

Peeps Sunflower Cake {Recipe}

Peeps Sunflower Cake {Recipe}
I first saw a picture of the Peeps Sunflower Cake a couple of years ago and keep meaning to make it but never seem to get around to it.  When I was out shopping last week and saw the little yellow Peeps on the shelf I decided there’s no time like the present.  This cake is so easy to make and so cute!

Peeps Sunflower Cake

Original recipe from


  • 1 box of your favorite cake mix
  • 3 cups of chocolate icing
  • 2 package of peeps (they usually come in a package of 10)
  • 1 cup (approximately) of chocolate chips


Prepare the cake mix according to the direction on the package.  Pour into two 9 inch greased and floured pans.  Cook according to package directions.  Remove from oven and let cakes cool, in pans, for 10 minutes.  Remove from pans and let cool completely.

Using a cake slicer or a large serrated knife level the tops of the cake – hint – always place your bottom cake right side up and your top cake bottom side up to ensure a perfectly flat cake.

Spread frosting between the cakes and stack.  Ice the entire cake.  Starting in the center of the cake arrange your chocolate chips in a circle pattern to resemble the seeds in the center of a sunflower. Leave about 1 1/2 inches of just frosting around the top of the cake.

Remove the Peeps from the package but do not separate!  Spread a thin layer of icing on the bottom of the peeps and arrange around the edge of the cake.  You probably will have 2 or 3 extra peeps when you are done.
