How to Make a Mini Egg Easter Cake

How to Make a Mini Easter Egg Cake #Easter #Baking

It wouldn’t be Easter without indulging in some chocolate eggs, and this cake is completely covered in them from top to bottom!

Make your favourite sponge to construct the cake, and cover in a generous helping of buttercream icing, then add your chocolate eggs by pressing them into the buttercream. If you can resist temptation to cut a slice straight away, leave the icing to harden a little, and then tuck in!

Suitable for : Beginners

Decorating time : One to three hours depending on speed!

How to Make

1. Start by covering your cake all over with a generous layer of buttercream, approximately five millimetres thick. Smooth it over with a palette knife; however it doesn’t need to be perfect!

2. Have your chocolate eggs ready to go and, starting at the base of the cake, begin sticking the eggs to the cake in colour pairs, (two white, two pink, two yellow, two purple) repeating the pattern all the way around the base.

3. For the second row of eggs, repeat the same pattern of colour pairs but shift the pattern along anti-clockwise by one egg.

4. Build up the layers of eggs row by row, making sure to shift the pattern along anti-clockwise by one egg every time you start a new row.

    How many bags of 90g Mini eggs do you reccomend?

      We’d recommend around six to eight bags – depending on the height of your cake.
