  • Scrape the sides, and then add your food coloring. Prepare your pans by coating the inside of each pan with shortening, and then flouring the insides. You don’t want your cake to stick. The small pan took 22 minutes to bake. The larger pan took 31 minutes.

  • As soon as you take your cakes out, go around the edges to loosen them from the sides of the pan. It makes a huge difference. Let them cool completely, then take them out of the pan. Chop your bar of white chocolate into small pieces. This will help it melt evenly. Place in a double boiler, on low heat and let it melt.

  • Add the vanilla and the confectioners’ sugar. I used this small wire basket to put the sugar in the batter. Measure it out, and then put it in the basket a little at a time and shake it over the mix. It has the same effect as sifting, and it is a lot quicker. If you don’t sift, your frosting might be lumpy, and it is hard to fix.

  • It only takes a tiny drop to produce vibrant hues.
  • Dark cake tins were used to make this dessert. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350°F/180°C if you’re using light cake tins.

How Do I Store Peeps Cake?

The cake can be prepared ahead of time and kept, covered, in the fridge for up to three days. Since the marshmallows will dry out and harden once they are taken out of the packaging, I advise adding them to the cake right before serving.

What If I Don’t Have Buttermilk?

You may make a buttermilk alternative by mixing regular whole milk with a small amount (approximately a tablespoon) of white vinegar. This will function the same as buttermilk. It will thicken up and be ideal for this recipe if you stir it and let it sit for a few minutes. You can also use regular whole milk.
