Easter Mini Bundt Cakes Ingredients and Substitutions

Yellow Cake Box Mix – I love using the Baker’s Corner brand because I’m all for making sure the ingredients I use are easily accessible. You can find this at any Aldi near you. The best part about this is even though it’s affordable, it doesn’t skimp on taste!

White Vanilla Frosting – If you’re short on time, instant vanilla frosting is a great option to use as a topping for your Easter Mini Bundt Cakes. I always go for the Betty Crocker brand. But if you have a trusted icing recipe that you can whip up, by all means, go ahead and make it.

Food Coloring – I used red and yellow food coloring. Using these will help you create a few different colors like pink and orange while helping you save costs.

Toppings – You can go for any topping you want to customize this recipe to any occasion. But since we’re making this as an Easter-themed dessert, I’m sticking to soft pastel-colored candies and sprinkles that are reminiscent of Spring.

How To Make This Easter Mini Bundt Cake Recipe

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Then, prepare your mini Bundt Cake Pans.
  • Prepare the yellow cake box mix according to the package instructions.
  • Fill the mini Bundt cake pans halfway through with the yellow cake mix batter and then bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, divide your frosting according to how many colors you want to use. Take your vanilla frosting and add a few drops of food coloring. Mix it well and microwave until the frosting becomes a glaze-like consistency. Repeat this process for the rest of the colors you want.
  • Take the mini Bundt cakes out once done, then allow them to cool.
  • Once the mini cakes have cooled, add dollops of the frosting on each one of them, then top with Easter candies.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Where to Buy Mini Bundt Cake Pans

Finding a Bundt cake pan is as easy as going to the local Target or grocery store, but figuring out where to buy mini Bundt cake pans can be a bit trickier. If you have a baking or kitchen store nearby, that’s a great place to start.

Mini Bundt Cake FAQs

How do you get a mini Bundt cake out of the pan?

To easily get your Bundt cakes out of the silicone pan, you want to make sure you’ve properly greased the cake pan before pouring in the batter. I like a non-stick baking spray with flour in it. I find that it increases the chance of getting my bundt cakes out of the pan in one piece.

If you forgot to prep your mini Bundt cake pan or your cakes still aren’t coming out easily, try to firmly bang the pan down on the counter (face up). The force is often enough to knock the cake out.

If you find that you’re still struggling, you can grab a dish towel and get it wet with very hot water (Wring it out well, making sure it’s not soaking or dripping wet). Then lay the dish towel over the bundt pan for a few minutes. The steam from the hot towel should help loosen the cake from the pan.

How long are these Easter Mini Bundt cakes good for?

You can store the cooled cakes in the fridge for up to 5 days, but I’m sure these won’t likely be left alone that long!

Do you flip a Bundt cake right away?

Not ideally. You should try to let the cake cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before trying to remove it. Once it’s removed, let it cool completely before decorating.

Who needs Nothing Bundt Cakes when you can easily make these Easter Mini Bundt cakes in your own kitchen? I hope you enjoyed these adorable mini-cakes!
