How to make pumpkin spice cake bites using egg molds in the Instant Pot

Hey there everyone! I see you’re back again. I am thrilled to have you. Today I am sharing how to make pumpkin spice cake bites using egg molds in the Instant Pot. There is no pumpkin though in this recipe. They just look like pumpkins. Fall is my all time favorite season. Although we are still a few days off until September, I couldn’t wait to start making fun and festive desserts for our son.

I mentioned in my last post where I made the chocolate chip cake bites in the egg molds HERE, that I like to have a special treat for our son when he comes home from school. He doesn’t like the flavor of pumpkin so I made him spice instead. For this recipe all you need is a Duncan Hines Spice cake mix, pretzel sticks, sprinkles and some green cupcake frosting. The cupcake frosting comes in a can with different tips you can use to make a design. Very fun and easy to use, and no mess. The can will last a while too. You also need an egg bite mold. You can find my egg bite mold HERE. **Note you can use any flavor cake you desire** Martha White mixes fit the entire package in one mold.

I love nothing more than taking something ordinary, and doing something a little more creative with it. Sure the egg bites are delicious, but it’s time we think outside the mold. There are a lot of great bites we can make in the egg bite molds. You can find over 50 ideas using the egg bite mold HERE.

Back to my pumpkins now:) Mix your cake according to the box directions. I hand mix my cakes with my Spurtles,  especially when baking in the Instant Pot. They tend to get too fluffy and bake way too high if you mix with an electric mixer.

Be sure to spray your mold with non-stick butter or coconut spray. You want your cake bites to easily pop out, which they will if you prepare the mold with non-stick spray first. Don’t forget your cup of water to add to the inner liner of the pot, always!

After 12 minutes on High Pressure Manual you can do a quick release, remove the mold from the pot and let cool for about 10 minutes before popping out of the mold.

Now the fun part! Take your cupcake icing and spray around the center of your cake bite. Insert half a pretzel stick and lightly sprinkle with your colorful sprinkles.

Just think how much the kids, your friends, and even neighbors will love these. My neighbors did:) If you are wondering what I did what the rest of the cake batter, stay tuned. You can of course use the entire mix to make more bites, but I chose to make something else.
