Pastel Dream Easter Cake



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease an 9″ x 9″ baking dish.
  2. Combine cake mix, milk, eggs, and softened butter in a large mixing bowl. Mix on low speed until ingredients are well combined.
  3. Then scoop 2-3 Tbsp. of wet mix into three separate small bowls. Add a different food colour to each bowl, mix until colour is consistent. Use more or less food colouring to get the desired colour. Place the remaining wet mix into the greased baking dish.
  4. Use a spoon to drop dollops of each of the coloured batters randomly over the white cake batter in the pan. Then use a butter knife and run it back and forth through the batter to swirl the coloured batter into the white batter.
  5. Bake the cake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 28-30 minutes. Cool completely.
  6. Frost the cooled cake, garnish with Easter sprinkle or themed candy and enjoy!


  1. Beat the butter in a large mixing bowl until it is light and fluffy. Add salt and mix.
  2. Slowly add powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing on low speed until all powdered sugar is added and mixed well with the butter.
  3. Next, add the vanilla, and two tablespoons of heavy cream. If you’d like to add food colouring you can add it here. Beat for one minute and check consistency. If frosting is too thick, add a bit more cream and continue mixing until frosting is a good consistency for spreading.
