So, I’m not the world’s best chef. When it came to baking a chocolate crème egg into a cupcake, it took me a few tries to get it right. First, the whole egg doesn’t fit into the cupcake. Second, when you cut it in half and turn it upside down, the ‘yolk’ leaks out, bakes into the cake and virtually disappears. But, if you turn it over the cupcake works.
After baking the cupcakes I wanted to decorate them with an Easter theme…
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Cake mix – Use your favorite recipe or what comes in a box.
· Frosting—Again, use a favorite recipe from scratch, or go with the ready-made kind.
· Cadbury crème eggs
· Green sprinkles
· Easter peeps
· Chocolate bunnies
Here’s What to Do:
1. Mix the cake batter.
2. Pour the batter into a cupcake tin, leaving some room at the top.
3. Cut the crème eggs into halves.
4. Pop the egg halves into the batter (one per cupcake). Make sure that the open part is facing up and above the top of the batter-line.
5. Bake the cupcakes.
6. Let the Easter cupcakes cool.
7. Frost the tops. I used orange icing. When I added green sprinkles on the frosting it reminded me of a bunny’s carrot or a spring scene.
8. Add a chocolate bunny or Easter peep on top.
