Spring is in full swing, and with it comes the delightful arrival of the Easter bunny. This enchanting creature carries with it an assortment of splendid Cadbury eggs, each one brimming with delectable gooey cream. It’s fortunate that these delectable delights grace us solely once a year, for if they were available year-round, I fear I would succumb to their irresistible allure and indulge myself indefinitely.

Given the limited time we have to revel in these Easter treasures, I took it upon myself to craft a unique cupcake recipe that showcases their splendor. Picture this: delectably moist chocolate cupcakes, their surfaces adorned with swirls of velvety white and sunny yellow buttercream frosting, crowned by a miniature Cadbury egg that serves as a crowning jewel.

However, the true astonishment lies hidden within, for concealed within the very heart of each cupcake lies a second egg, waiting patiently to reveal its creamy secrets. Thus, when you take a bite into these tantalizing treats, the rich cream filling gracefully bursts forth, caressing your taste buds with its irresistible decadence.

To make them even more special, you can cut some of the eggs that adorn the cake in half, so you can see the tempting golden contents in all their glory. It’s spring, so let it all hang out!

Can I use full size Cadbury eggs?

Yes, you will end up with fewer cupcakes as the sweets will fill the pan more.

How do I stir the buttercream like in the picture?

Place the tip of the piping in the middle of the cupcake and start squeezing out the buttercream. Move clockwise from the center to the outside and continue around the entire cupcake. When you are about to connect the frosting, stop pushing the buttercream but keep the twisting motion to nicely cut the stream of buttercream.

Should I use liquid or gel food coloring?

I prefer gel food coloring because it will not thin the frosting.
