Can You Prepare These Easter Mini Cakes in Advance?

Yes absolutely! But considering these fun and easy Easter Mini Cakes are made by cutting circles out of your prepared cake, you will want to store these in an airtight cake storage container to prevent the cake and/or icing from drying out. I’d even go as far as to wrap the cake circle parts in wax paper (or parchment paper) and then inside a storage container to ensure they stay as fresh and soft as possible!

How to Make Easter Mini Cakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line your 13×9 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, use a sifter to sift together your flour, baking powder, and salt.

Using an electric mixer, stand mixer, or whisk, beat together the eggs and granulated sugar until creamy and well blended. Add to this your vanilla extract and canola oil and continue mixing.

Spread cake batter onto your lined baking sheet spreading evenly with a cake spatula. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake. Allow to cool completely before decorating.

Directions to Assemble Easter Mini Cakes

Use your 3-inch round cookie cutter to cut out 24 circles from your cakes. (Fun idea, you can save what you trim from the cake for later and enjoy as a snack!)
