A Resurrection Bundt cake is a fun activity that you can do with your kids to celebrate the true meaning of Easter.
With a few modifications, you can turn a regular Bundt cake into an empty tomb — what a great reminder that He is Risen!
I’ll show you how to make it!

Bake the Bundt cake
1-15.25 oz. chocolate cake mix
1-3.4 oz. pkg. chocolate instant pudding
1 1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup warm water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1 container chocolate frosting
1/4 container cream cheese icing dyed with green food coloring
1/4 cup Oreo crumbs
1 pkg. candy rocks
Preheat oven to 325. Mix together cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, water, oil and vanilla in a stand mixer, hand mixer or by hand until well mixed. Add in chips and mix just until evenly dispersed.
Pour into well greased Bundt cake pan. Bake for 50-70 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out slightly coated but not wet.
Remove from oven and let stand in pan for 20 minutes. Invert onto plate or cake stand.
Be sure to let it cool before decorating!
Time to decorate!
Once your cake has cooled completely, cut out a quarter section of the cake.
Then flip it over to create a dome over the hole of the cake.
Pipe chocolate icing around the top to fill in the cracks…
… then cover top of the cake with icing and add some Oreo crumbs for dirt.
Add some decoration to the opening with candy rocks and pipe some green icing on the top for grass.
Use your favorite donut to represent the stone that was rolled away from the entrance!
Add a topper
Print this free “He is Risen” cake topper to finish off your creation! (If you can, print it on card stock or stiffer paper so it doesn’t flop over!)
Cut off the bottom, tape it to a skewer and insert into the top of the cake.
Or if you prefer, you can buy a cake topper like this one from Amazon!
We hope that your cake turns out well and that you have a happy and meaningful Easter!
