Easter egg basket cake

Easter basket cake

Ok so I might have made one last Easter treat. Who can resist an Easter cake that looks like a giant edible basket of eggs?

It was pretty easy to make. I just whipped up my favourite chocolate mudcake (sorry I was sworn to secrecy with that recipe) and iced it with chocolate ganache.

Then I stuck a whole lot of kitkats around the side until they met up again. I hot-glue-gunned a ribbon and bow around them to hold them in place (yes I might have glued it to the chocolate).

Eggs eggcellent eggs

Then I filled it with eggs. Enjoy!

    Ive been looking for a recipe for a truly moist chocolate cake for a while. Must admit I was a bit apprehensive about the coffee but as you said earlier you definitely can’t taste it…. I made this today and it was lovely! Very moist and everybody loved it. Will definitely make again. Thank you.

    Mmmm, yum! I love the look of this.

  • That is so cute! Plus I love Kit Kats so I’d be happy to get this as a birthday cake 😛

      I saw one filled with m&ms that would make the perfect Birthday cake!
