Well Easter is finally here, and all the chocolate goodness that goes with it. The shops are full to the brim with so many chocolate eggs in all sizes and flavours. I think Tayto even brought out a cheese & onion flavour one this year!! My son put in a special request for that one!!
Easter wouldn’t be Easter in my house without my Cadbury Cream Egg Easter Bake. It’s become a family tradition. Even though Cadbury have changed the recipe of their cream egg, I really don’t think it’s made much difference to the chocolate, not if the assortment of cream egg bakes appearing everywhere is anything to go by. We even had a pop up Cream Egg Cafe open in Dublin this year. Check out the great article Lovin Dublin did here.
Surprise surprise I’ve decided to go with a chocolate cake this year. I’m using my favorite baking tin“the bundt”. This tin is perfect for the nest shape I’m going for. It’s a very easy recipe which gives you a rich chocolate cake. I’ve split it in half and filled it with a mascarpone whipped cream. On the top will be two Cadbury cream eggs nestling in all that chocolate deliciousness. I know it’s super luscious but it is Easter
I coloured half the cream orange/yellow. I also coloured the white chocolate I used for the drizzle.
A little tip you have to use a special “candy”colouring to colour chocolate. The normal food colouring won’t work. Wilton make a box with 4 colours. This is the one I use, it works brilliantly.
I’ve topped it off with chopped up Cadbury Cream eggs. It was a huge hit with the kids and the neighbours. I got 12 slices out of this cake, a little goes a long way with this one.
