An Easter collage

We had a lovely Easter brunch...

and homemade Nutella, lemon curd and strawberry preserves
and easy-peasy morning buns (recipe to come soon)
and royal icing bird nests a la Sprinkle Bakes
and macarons made with Italian meringue (my first time)
and neon bunny cookies in sweet bunny bags
and homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs (reserved for the grown-ups)
and cute cousins all dressed up for an egg hunt.

How about you?

Pinned it, made it: Cadbury Creme Eggs

I've never been a big fan of eating Cadbury Creme Eggs, but they have always fascinated me. How did they get the sugary yolk inside there? Well, it turns out to be pretty easy! When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a try.

The recipe gives two methods of making the eggs - rolling by hand or using a chocolate mold. The later seemed much simpler, so I choose that route. I also piped the "whites" and "yolks" into the chocolate shell rather than rolling them like in the recipe.

The result was quite delicious! Everyone who tried them said the were better than the original and not as cloyingly sweet. Next time, I might make them using bittersweet chocolate to offset the sweetness of the filling even more (and there will definitely be a next time!)

Happy Easter, to all my peeps!

Bunny Scones on Cake.

Do you have any favorite Easter traditions? I'm always up for trying new things, but Easter wouldn't be Easter without bunny scones at my house.
Check out my recipe over at Cake.
