Poke Cakes are one of my favorite cakes for two simple reasons. One, they are incredibly simple to make; just a few ingredients is all you need. Second, they are often some of the tastiest desserts because they cake is so moist.

Peeps Cake

Before you tell me that you don’t like the flavor of Peeps candy, let me tell you this: there are no actual Peeps in this cake. The candy is just for decoration and makes this a really fun Easter dessert. If your kids are like mine and love the candy, then they’ll just eat them all for you!

How To Make A Peeps Poke Cake

  1. Bake the cake. Follow along with the directions on the back of your cake mix.
  2. Poke holes. When the cake has cooked and cooled, use the back of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over.
  3. Make the pudding. Whisk up the pudding mix and milk until it’s thick. Pour it over the cake and spread it out so it seeps into the holes.
  4. Optional: color the pudding. You can simply use the pudding as is, or you can add some color to it but dividing it into smaller bowls and using some pastel food coloring to dye it.
  5. Make the frosting. Beat together the heavy cream, powdered sugar and extra pudding mix. Then spread it over the pudding.
  6. Make coconut “grass”. Put the shredded coconut in a ziploc bag and add some green food coloring. Shake it up to dye the coconut to look like grass!
  7. Decorate. Sprinkle the coconut all over the cake and then add Peeps and mini Cadbury eggs to decorate your cake.

Then, enjoy! This Easter poke cake is best eaten within the first 3 days. Since there is milk in the pudding mix, you want to keep this cake refrigerated.
