Cadbury Egg Cake

cake

This Cadbury Egg Cake is super simple…the effect coming from the frosting colors alone! Use a boxed mix or a scratch recipe, either way it will be delicious!

Cadbury Eggs are my fave.

Thank the Lord above that they are only available one time a year. Because it could be disastrous for me, otherwise.

I do remember a time, not too long ago, that Cadbury tried to make the eggs a Halloween thing too, by putting green filling in the middle.

Do they still do that?

Well, if they do, they need to stop it now. Because they don’t taste the same.

Cadbury Eggs can only be enjoyed while simultaneously suffering from seasonal Spring allergies.

It’s a fact.

Also, I am aware that there are people out there who don’t enjoy the Cadbury Egg, to which I say, Good day, sir. Good. Day.

But here’s the thing, even if you don’t love a Cadbury Egg and all it’s gloriously delicious goopy filling, you can still enjoy the cake. Because it’s just food coloring people. Food coloring and frosting. Everyone’s a winner.

All you have to do is make a chocolate cake in 2 round pans. Go ahead and use my favorite chocolate cake recipe, or even a boxed mix.

THEN make some frosting. Here’s my recipe for my favorite fudge frosting (make half the recipe)

AND make some vanilla buttercream frosting. (make half the recipe).

 

Divide your vanilla frosting into 2 portions, 2/3 leave white and 1/3 color yellow.

When the cake has cooled, level the cakes, if necessary. Fill up a zip zip-top bag (or piping bag) with your white frosting. Cut a large corner of the bag to pipe.

Go around the edge of the cake and then make stripes with the white…

Next up fill another zip-top bag with the yellow frosting and fill in the unfrosted parts with yellow…

Placing the remaining cake layer on top when done.

Frost the cake with the chocolate frosting…

Now you could stop there and place a few Cadbury eggs on top. But I had a little vanilla frosting leftover and decided to swirl the yellow and white for garnish.

I placed them both on opposite sides of a piping bag fit with a large tip…

And just swirled the remaining frosting on top…

I placed a mini Cadbury Egg on top of each swirl to look cute!

Then of course I ate 1 or 2 or 3 slices…

For a twist that the Cadbury egg hating people could take advantage of…
Make marshmallow fluff buttercream, and use peeps as garnish!

They do still make the ones with the green yolk. Yum. I think they taste the same so maybe they adjusted the formula since you tasted them. I just don’t look, eww. I don’t look at the yellow ones either cause it reminds me of eating raw eggs. But this cake sounds fantastic!

I’m one of those crazies that doesn’t like Cadbury Eggs…. They’re too gooey and sweet. No thanks. However, my husband is drooling all over my phone and begging for Easter. It’s basically just a chocolate cake with layers of buttercream frosting, am I reading that right??

I have often used the Cadbury Caramello eggs in Cupcakes. Just pop a whole egg in the middle of the batter then fill. Cool & Ice. Surprise for those eating them.
