I'm LOVING all the neon colored drip cakes everywhere! They are covering my Pinterest feed, and I knew I had to recreate, but Easter themed of course. I made a 5" cake, but do whatever size you feel like. If you make a larger cake, just make sure to melt a little bit more candy coating/chocolate than the recipe calls for. 

INGREDIENTS

  • (3) layers of 5" vanilla cake, baked and cooled in freezer
  • 3 cups favorite vanilla buttercream
  • 3 oz Wilton blue candy coating
  • 3 oz Wilton purple candy coating
  • 6 oz Wilton yellow candy coating
  • Your fave Wilton Easter Sprinkles
  • Wilton Bunny silicone mold
  • Wilton disposable pastry bags

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make sure your cake layers are nice and cold. This will help keep the cake from crumbling too much or falling apart while frosting. 
  2. Start out by placing on of you layers onto a cake stand or cake board. Place that onto a cake turn table or a lazy Susan! Lazy Susans are MUCH CHEAPER and just as easy to use!! (This will help you turn your cake as you frost it).
  3.  Fill you pastry bag with some buttercream. In an even swirl action, cover the entire top of the cake with the buttercream. Top with another layer of cake, and repeat this process until all three layers are stacked ontop of each other. 
  4. Add some more buttercream to the cake and cover the entire surface with an offset spatula. You then want to scrap as much frosting off, so this only frosting left on the cake, is the thinnest layer. 
  5. Put the cake bake into the fridge to keep cold. 
  6. Melt your blue and purple candy coatings in separate glass bowls in a microwave, in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Once they're melted, add in 1 Tbsp canola oil, to help thin them out a bit, and mix until combined and nice and smooth. 
  7. Take your cake out of the fridge and pour the blue melts onto the top of the cake. With an offset spatula, quickly smooth out the top. This will create your drips. Place your cake back into the fridge or freezer for just a minute, until the blue layer is hardened. 
  8. Once the blue layer is hardened, repeat the last step with the purple layer. You'll get a nice multi later drip going down your entire cake! Add your face Wilton Easter Sprinkles to the top rim, and voila, your cake is done!
  9. I thought the bunny molds were too adorable not to use, so I melted a little yellow candy coating and filled each mold to the top. Popped them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to let them completely harden, and easily popped them out of the silicone mold. Add to the tops of the sides of you cake for fun and festive decor!
