A perfect recipe for spring! These lemon cakes will delight the whole family with pastel colors and delicious taste!


  • 1 - 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Egg shaped cookie cutter
  • Assorted circle cookie cutters


  1. Make boxed cake per instructions, adding Lemon Compound.
  2. Bake in a sheet pan per instructions.
  3. Once cooled, level top of cake.
  1. Mix cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the cream and the sugar.
  3. Fold the whipped cream and cream cheese mixture together.
  4. Frost the cake with a light layer of icing and freeze for an hour or overnight.
  1. Knead small batches of the fondant to a soft consistency, sprinkling cornstarch onto the work surface to keep it from sticking.
  2. Add the colors to the individual batches, wrapping each in plastic.
  3. Keep all fondant wrapped as soon as it is soft.
  1. Using an egg-shaped cookie cutter, press out individual “eggs” from the frozen, frosted cake.
  2. Roll out the colored fondant pieces to thin layers.
  3. Using the same egg-shaped cookie cutter, press out a yellow egg and gently wet the bottom of the fondant so it adheres to the frosted cake.
  4. Lay it onto the egg-shaped cake.
  5. With a knife, cut a small band from the blue fondant, wet the bottom and lay it on top of the yellow fondant.
  6. Using a small tip, cut out little circles from the orange fondant, wet them and lay them on the blue band.
  7. Using a small egg-shaped cookie cutter, press out an egg from the orange fondant, wet it and lay it on the upper edge of the yellow egg.
  • Keep fondant wrapped at all times when not working with it as it hardens very quickly.
  • Use any shaped cookie cutters or cut your own shapes to make any decorations you’d like!
Look no further, this is the perfect recipe for Easter! These Lemon Easter Cakes are super adorable and delicious!
