Once the glaze dries these are NOT sticky at all! They’re easy to pick up and move around anywhere you want to.


Today I decided to flip them out of the mini muffin pan and use the bottom as the top. Why? Just kind of felt like it. You can use them however you want to!


There is wax paper down there to catch the extra glaze that drips down. It makes clean up so much easier.


Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Bites

Ingredients:  2015-04-16-5248

1 regular size lemon cake mix

3-1/2 oz. package instant lemon pudding mix

4 large eggs

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup water

1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds

2- 1/2 cups powdered sugar

4-5 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Lemon juice

Rainbow sprinkles, or any bright sprinkle


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two – 24 cup mini muffin pans well with cooking spray. Using a stand mixer, or handheld mixer blend cake mix, lemon pudding mix, eggs, oil, water and poppy seeds. Mix well, for at least 2 minutes.

2. Fill each mini muffin cup 2/3 full, filling all 48 muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Empty onto wire rack so that the top is now the bottom, or keep them right side up.

3. For the glaze, place powdered sugar into a large bowl. Drizzle lemon juice stirring until smooth and desired consistency. If you would like a thinner glaze you can add water; do so by adding 1/2 tablespoon of water at a time. Or more lemon juice can be used.

With your fingers or tongs, dip the top of the cake bites (which were the bottom in the pan) covering the entire surface. Place on wire racks lined with wax paper to catch any drips. Immediately add sprinkles to top (the bottom in the pan), if using. Let the cake bites stand until glaze is set completely.

Makes 48 cake bites.
