Ingredients

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 box white cake mix + ingredients to make

Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 3.4 oz. box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • cup instant vanilla pudding mix dry

Topping Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • Green pink, and purple food coloring, optional
  • 30 Cadbury Mini Eggs
  • 15 Peeps Bunnies

Instructions

Instructions

  • Prepare the cake mix according to the box instructions for a 9x13-inch cake pan.
  • Let the cake cool completely, then use the handle of a wooden spoon to post holes all over the top of the cake about halfway down.
  • Whisk together the pudding mix and cold milk for 2 minutes in a large bowl, divide the prepared pudding into smaller bowls and add food coloring if desired.
  • Pipe or spoon the pudding over the top of the holes on the cake then spread it out over the top with a rubber spatula.
  • Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and pudding mix to a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Spread the frosting over the top of the pudding.
  • In a large ziploc bag, combine the coconut and several drops of green food coloring and squeeze and shake to dye it, then sprinkle over the top of the cake.
  • Decorate the cake with Cadbury mini eggs and peeps.

Notes

If you prefer a non-pudding option for the filling, poke the cake all over with a fork while warm and pour a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk over the top.
