I love getting creative with baking but, like meals, baking projects have to be easy. Preferably the sweets will look and taste like I spent all day in the kitchen working but, in reality, I want to spend as little time as possible.

Last year for Easter, I made this fun cake. It was e-a-s-y, turned out really cute, and was very delicious. I got the idea from this Happy Money Saver post.

I found these other simple and fun Easter cake ideas. I wouldn’t share anything I wouldn’t make myself and I wouldn’t make anything that was overly difficult so, believe me when I say, anyone is capable of making any of these Easter creations.

This rabbit cake would be a big hit with the kiddos. I would look for a substitute for the coconut but, even if there was coconut on the cake, I could eat around it. I’m talented in eating cakes like that.

I’m not a huge fan of peeps but they’re pretty accents on Spring goodies. These peep brownies would make a colorful addition to any Easter meal. You could even do cake instead of brownies if you’re not a fan of brownies (is there anybody who doesn’t like brownies?!).

Not sure about your kids but I know my daughter would love to find an egg under a Peep in her cupcake. These cupcakes are a simple way to bring a smile to the face of your little ones.

It’s fun to include the kids in the kitchen and what do kids love more than cake???? Marshmallows on cake! My daughter would eat marshmallows morning, noon, and night if we’d let her. Kids could easily help make this little lamb and will be rewarded with marshmallows.

This next one is a little more involved but looks more complicated than it actually is. I contemplated doing it last year but because coconut isn’t one of my favorite things (ok, that’s an understatement), I opted with the cake that involved M&M’s instead. Who could blame me?

Again, more Peeps but they’re so dang colorful.

More marshmallows and cute little sheep.

M&M’s on cupcakes in the shape of a carrot. It doesn’t get much easier than this, folks.

Again, don’t let the picture intimidate you on this one. It’s easier to put together than it looks. The directions are very good and it doesn’t involve any crazy supplies or ingredients.
