DEVILED EGG CAKE (Store Bought Cake Mix made to look Deviled) - 52 Cakes and Pies at Home

Pin It Now!

A special shout out and thanks to The Food Network Magazine for the idea behind this crowd pleaser...

This post is more of a DIY "How To" post than a recipe.

The ingredients are entirely store bought pre-packaged convenience foods.  I bought a Funfetti Cake Mix and a can of frosting.  Just a small amount of piping bag skills and the whimsical cake is done!

There is a small "trick"...

When you bake the Cake mix, use two different sized pans.  To make the shape, cut a crescent shape from the larger one so the smaller one nestles inside.

Save the cut out.  You use that to combine with some of the frosting (like making a "Cake Pop" to add volume where the Yolk part should be in a Deviled Egg.

Then simply color the remaining icing a bright yellow, Pipe the mound with a large star tip and fast and easy as can be... One decorated Whimsy cake!

OK... Here's what I did...


  • 1 "Funfetti" Pillsbury Cake Mix
  • 1/3 Cup Oil
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Can (12 Ounces) Pillsbury Fluffy White Supreme Frosting
  • Yellow Food Coloring Gel
Cooking Directions
  1. Prepare Cake mix as directed on box, using Oil and Eggs. Make two round cakes, one smaller than the other,
  2. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
  3. Cut a portion of the larger cake out that allows the smaller cake to slide in a few inches, forming a larger egg shape. Reserve the cut out cake.
  4. Frost the now single layer egg shaped cake with 2/3rds of the frosting from the can. Add a little extra on the sides where the cakes meet so the finished cake has a smooth egg shape.
  5. Take 3 TBS of the remaining frosting and mix with the left over cake that was removed from the large cake. Mix well.
  6. Plop this cake pop mixture onto the center of the egg shape, where the yolk would be in a deviled egg.
  7. Color the remaining frosting a bright yellow. Put this into a piping bag and using a star tip, pipe the mound.
  8. Make up stories about a dinosaur egg found in your backyard or following a chicken for a few days that was walking funny to tell your nephews and... ENJOY!

This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
