Easter Peep Poke Cake

Easter is around the corner and Peeps have been gracing the shelves of the candy isle. This year I thought it would be fun to make a kid friendly colorful, peep inspired Easter cake.

What could be more fun then a poke cake? A poke cake is a cake, “poked” with holes. Next, Jello is poured into the holes.

For this cake, I used lime Jello and coconut, colored green to give it a grassy look. Naturally, as this cake was being made, Lime and the Coconut played in the background on Alexa.

Easter Peep Poke Cake Notes

I opted to make this a lighter, less sugary cake, by using cool whip for the frosting, versus a butter cream. A white cake is not super sugary in general, so if you want a sweeter cake, you may want to opt for a buttercream or cream cheese frosting.

I made these “hanging with my peeps,” and “carrot patch signs,” if you want to print your own to use on your cake, they are right here to print.
