You need only a handful of ingredients to create these egg-ceptional Easter treats. Decorator gels make it easy to dress up the fun little desserts.——Taste of Home Test Kitchen


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 7-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • Decorator gels


  1. Prepare cake according to package directions. Pour into a lightly greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 18-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut cake into eggs (or other desired shapes) with a 2-1/2-in. oval cookie cutter.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water and extract; beat on low speed until sugar is moistened. Beat on high until smooth.
  4. Place petit fours on a rack with waxed paper beneath. Spoon the glaze evenly over tops and sides, letting excess drip off.
  5. Allow glaze to set; repeat with second coat if necessary. Let stand until set. Decorate with gels.
