Peeps Sunflower Cake

1 pkg (18 1/4 oz.) yellow cake mix
2 cans (16 oz. each) chocolate frosting*
19 yellow chick Peeps candies
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Prepare and bake cake according to package directions using 2 greased and waxed paper -lined 9 inch round baking pans.** Cool for 10 minutes before removing layers from pans and placing on wire racks to cool completely; carefully remove waxed paper.
  2. Level tops of cakes. Spread frosting between cake layers and over top and sides.
  3. Without separating Peeps and curving slightly to fit, arrange chicks around edge of cake to form sunflower petal. For sunflower seeds, arrange chocolate chips in center of cake.
*I would make my own chocolate frosting. You can find the recipe here.
**I would just spray my pan with Pam and not use the waxed paper.

If you are my kids, you would know that I adore Peeps. So of course I love this recipe. I got this recipe out of the April 2012 Reader's Digest Magazine. The article says you can get more Easter recipes by visiting:

I just read a review from here and someone posted this suggestion in case you want to make this cake this summer: If you want to make this in the summer, buy the Peeps and freeze them.A few days after Easter you will get them for 75% off!
