Easter baking round-up ft. extra chocolate cake!

Happy Easter everyone!

Easter bunny chocolate cake with maltesers 1

I made these two Easter cakes yesterday. The recipe is the same as the one I used for this two layer chocolate cake (which I’ll mention below as well).

In case you’ve missed the Easter / spring-themed recipes I’ve posted over the last three weeks, I thought I’d do a quick recap. Just my way of spreading some extra sweetness this Easter weekend šŸ™‚ And it’s still not too late to make your own!

1. Double chocolate Easter layer cake with mini eggs

Spring is here! I also used this recipe to make the bunny cake featured at the start of this post. A lovely rich chocolate mixture which always produces a rich, moist cake.

2. Shredded wheat chocolate nests with golden syrup and mini eggs

These cute shredded wheat chocolate nests have one of the most child-friendly recipes out there, particularly if you use the microwave to melt the chocolate.

3. Chocolate finger cake. Sponge layer cake with vanilla buttercream, a biscuit border and mini eggs

I’m so pleased with how the biscuit border worked out. This cake also cut really cleanly and the biscuits stayed on (thank you, buttercream. Best edible glue there is!).

I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend and find time to bake or enjoy someone else’s baking!
