Easter Basket Cakes!

Ingredients and supplies: 

  • 1 set of Sprinkle Pop narrow cake pans
  • 1 set of Sprinkle Pop royal icing easter friends
  • 1 bottle of Sprinkle Pop pastel jimmies
  • 1 piping bag with a grass nozzle attachment (they have a set of 3 on amazon for under $7)!
  • 1 box of Duncan Hines carrot cake mix + ingredients on back of the box
  • 1 small bottle of buttermilk
  • One 8oz package of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups of sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons of heavy cream (for adjusting consistency)
  • 1 small bottle of green food coloring

For the cake:

  • In a large mixing bowl add your cake mix bowl, replacing the amount of water with buttermilk.
  • Mix well and evenly add your battery to your narrow cake pans.
  • Bake according to box instructions, checking on them regularly. 
  • Once they are done baking, let them cool completely while you work on your frosting. 

For the frosting:

  • Once your cream cheese and butter are both softened at room temperature, put them both in your mixer, or a bowl for handheld mixing, and beat them together for about 2-3 minutes at medium speed.
  • Add your vanilla extract and incorporate it into the mixture.
  • Slowly add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating on low speed after each addition to incorporate the sugar without causing it to puff out of the bowl. Once all the sugar has been added, increase the speed to medium and beat until the frosting is smooth and creamy.
  • Slowly add in your green food coloring to get the light green color.
  • If your frosting seems too thick to pipe with, add your heavy cream a little bit at a time until the consistency is adjusted.


  • Once your frosting is ready, add it to your piping bag and slowly pipe your grass onto your cakes, one by one by starting from the base of the cake and pulling up fast to make the “grass” stick up.
  • Once you’ve done this on each cake, add your sprinkles, royal icing pieces and your favorite easter candies!
