Easter is a great time to get a little creative with baking. This year's creations included a cake and a tart, based on the caramel filled easter eggs that are a long time favourite in our house.
The cake is a chocolate cake with a caramel mouse filling, covered with swiss meringue buttercream and chocolate ganache.
My Easter Egg tart has a caramel filling, covered with chocolate ganache and salted caramel swirls.
A few little tarts were made as well, with a little left over caramel mousse...
And lastly, a favourite baking treat I've been making for years, the Easter Egg cupcakes... pop a small solid chocolate egg into the batter of cupcakes, bake and you'll have a little chocolatey surprise inside. If you'd like to see more about these cupcakes, I wrote a post several years ago which you can read HERE.
Hope you have a happy Easter!
