Carrot Easter Cake

It’s not Easter without a themed cake! Rather than deal with a fussy animal-shaped pan, bake two round cake layers with an 8-inch diameter and let a little food styling and frosting do the work. You can use a box cake mix make a favorite recipe from scratch, depending on the level of effort you want to put in. This method can also be used for the Easter Egg Cake and Easter Bunny Cake. 


  • 2pre-baked (8-inch) round cake layers
  • 3 cups orange frosting
  • 1 cup green frosting

How to Make It

Step 1

Assemble cake layers on a flat surface. Place 1 cake layer on top of the other cake layer, so the sides of the cake meet, but there is a 2- to 3-inch border on the bottom of the lower cake. With a small knife, carve out the 2- to 3-inch crescent moon-shaped border using the top layer as a tracing guide. Slice sides off the moon-shaped piece at an angle to make a sharp corner on the bottom (this will be the bottom tip of “carrot”). Reserve the side pieces.

Step 2

Place the bottom tip piece below the non-cut cake layer to resemble a carrot. Cut reserved sliced side pieces in half, and assemble them above the carrot to resemble a leafy carrot top. Reserve the larger piece of the cut cake for another use or discard.

Step 3

Frost carrot with orange frosting. Frost the leaves with the green frosting.
