Sunflower Peeps Candy filled Cake

A new discount store opened up by the named Ollie’s and they had a large pallet of Easter Peeps for just 29 cents a box.  My grand daughter loves peeps.  So what do you do with Easter peeps in the fall of the years besides eating them.  I saw some pictures on line with cakes decorated with peeps.  Just to let you know my grand daughter ate 10 boxes a couple weeks ago.

All I did was make a chocolate pound cake in a tube pan from a mix.  I filled the center with fall candies.  I sliced a large muffin top off and placed it on top of the candy center. Then I iced the cake covering the muffin top with a can of milk chocolate frosting.  A box of yellow peeps was arranged around the center to make the petals to the sunflower. In the center some mini chocolate chips was sprinkled.  A box of green bunnies was turned upside down and arranged around the base of the cake to look like leaves.

Very fun and easy to do.

      I only have three dollars and some change in this cake. The mini chips I had bought after Christmas last year half price to use to make eyes. It is a real challenge to bake and cook on a very small budget. This is the reason I am on line to share low budget recipes and ideas. After this little adventure into peeps and cakes I will probably never look at a box of peeps the same way. I will probably hoard them off season like my candy melts, M&Ms and chocolate chips. Thanks for your comment.

    This looks amazing! Sunflowers are my favorite flower, and you made them even better because you made the flower with Peeps. I am a fan of anything with sugar, so I would love to have a slice of this right now đŸ™‚ I’m sure your grandkids gobbled this up in seconds. I know I would!
