I just had to share these with you all before Easter. With warm homemade hot cross buns digesting in my tummy and prawns on the way for lunch, I'm certainly enjoying the Easter food this year.
After picking up some delicious caramel filled chocolate mini eggs, I wanted to incorporate them into a sweet treat somehow. So I made up a batch of my favourite vanilla bean cupcakes and after filling cupcake cases ⅓ full, I placed a caramel filled egg in the centre of each and topped with a little more batter until cases were ⅔ full. Bake as per normal directions but when checking if done, insert skewer to the side so you miss the gooey egg.
So, so easy and to decorate I piped a buttercream nest, sprinkled with chocolate bits and nestled another caramel egg in the middle. That's 2 easter eggs in one cupcake! Hehe a guilty indulgence. Sorry I have no cross section photos as I was in a rush to take them to work oops.
