Who knew dyed Easter Egg Cake Bites could be so adorable? I mean probably Bakerella.
I’ve been a long time fan of Bakerella. Everything she touches turns to cuteness. She manages to take any idea and make it over the top charming.
She is after all the cake pop queen! But me? I’m more of a utilitarian when it comes to my food. I just don’t understand why you would put cake on a stick? Why not just cake bites? Why not just adorable little cake creations that sit on your table?
You’ll love these colorful Easter egg cake bites. You can make them my way, or put them on a stick for Easter egg cake pops! Either way they will make a cheerful celebration!
Dyed Easter Egg Cake Bites
Coloring Easter Eggs have a long tradition as part of Easter Celebrations. In fact, some historians date coloring eggs all the way back to the time of Christ.
We always include this activity in our festivities, and the kids love searching for them as much as they love hunting for plastic eggs filled with treasures.
These dyed Easter egg cake bites are every bit just as much fun. Look how colorful and vibrant they are!

Ingredients for Easter Egg Cake Bites
I always save any extra cake I have left over. I take the cake remnants and mix it up with enough frosting to make it stick together. All that is left is to roll out little balls, and then stick them in the freezer for a later date.
This week I found cake balls made from Mini Red Velvet Cakes, Orange Chocolate Cupcakes and Banana Cake.
Otherwise, you can simply make any cake and frosting recipe to make cake bites.
Then, you just need a few pastel sprinkles and colored candy melts.
Making an egg shape is quite simple. Make a ball, flatten it slightly and then squeeze both sides together.
You’ll want to cup the ball as you squeeze in the sides to make sure you don’t make a square or rectangle instead.
Easter Egg Hunt
These are great to add to your indoor or backyard Easter Egg Hunt! The kids will have a hard time telling them apart from the real and plastic eggs.
The real treasure is found inside! In fact, in some we even hid a yellow candy yolk jellybean.
Great Gift Idea
This recipe is perfect for sharing with friends and neighbors, nieces and nephews, grandkids, or your congregation at church.
My kids and I loved making these together and coming up with all sorts of fun color combinations and decorative ideas.

I really love my chocolate melter and I constantly find recipes to use it.
It’s especially perfect for recipes like this to keep the chocolate the perfect temperature the whole time you need it. No getting up and constantly having to reheat the chocolate in between decorating.
I definitely recommend it for the home baker!
