This Hatching Chick Cake is one of my favorite Easter Cake ideas yet! So easy to put together and so fun to share with friends and family!
Place softened butter and granulated sugar into stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on medium for 1-2 minutes.
Add milk, oil, vanilla, yellow food color, and eggs and mix on medium for one minute or until ingredients are fully incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared 9 x 13 cake pan. Bake at 350°F for 22-32 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack for at least 30 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.
Beat butter in bowl of stand mixer with whisk attachment on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. (about 3 minutes)
With the mixer on low, slowly add in confectioners sugar, milk, and salt; frequently scrape sides and bottom of the bowl.
Once incorporated, whip frosting for at least 3 minutes on medium high to high. (My mixer went for 7 minutes)
