Oh, the fun you can have with so many holiday candies available today. If you were lucky enough to snatch up Easter Peeps that were in the clearance baskets last spring - this fun cake is quick and easy for a late summer birthday cake idea.
For those who really don’t care to back-track - here is an explanation about Peeps. They are basically marshmallow candies, sold in the US & Canada, that are shaped into chicks, bunnies, and other animals. Peeps are used primarily to fill Easter baskets, though recent ad campaigns tout the candy as “Peeps - Always in Season.” They are made from marshmallow, corn syrup, gelatin, and carnauba wax. Peeps are produced by Just Born, a candy manufacturer based in Bethlehem, PA - and they were introduced nationally in 1958. The yellow chicks were the original form of the candy - hence their name - but then the company introduced other colors, and eventually, the myriad shapes in which they are now produced.
