I love the little fluffy easter chicks you can buy at this time of year. So I had to make some easter cakes. I decided to mix the traditional chocolate nest (chocolate covered cereal, mini eggs and chick) with a vanilla cupcake. So a yummy cupcake with a little nest on top. My friend was over so we made these cakes together and she told me that you can actually melt a bar of dairy milk to cover crispy cakes without having to add any butter or syrup. So we tried it and she was right. It melts perfectly in a glass bowl resting in simmering water, provided you keep an eye on it and keep stirring. A lovely simple way to make some easter treats.
This cake I made a couple of years ago at easter. I made an Easter yellow runny butter icing and found some teeny chocolate chips which made cute little nests for the mini eggs to sit in.
