Happy Easter Everyone!
Easter time makes everyone feel especially crafty, making easter bonnets, easter masks, decorating easter baskets, drawing faces on eggs.. Easter is a pretty creative holiday! Charlie and I did some baking today and he made some classic Easter Nest Egg cakes.
All you need is…
(Or Rice Krispies if you prefer, but Shredded Wheat gives more of the nest effect!)
A Cupcake/Muffin Tin
First, put the cupcake cases in the cupcake tin. Charlie was quite counterproductive and decided to take them out as his papa put them in, but forgive him, he’s only 9 months old!
Secondly, mash up the Shredded Wheat into smaller pieces but be careful not to crush them too much or they’ll end up just a fine powder.
Next, melt the chocolate! We cheated and did it in the microwave but honestly it does come out better if you snap up the chocolate, put the bits in a bowl and put the bowl on top of a pan of boiling water. Keep stirring or it’ll burn! When all the lumps are gone you’re ready!
Mix the melted chocolate and the mashed up cereal together well, ensuring all the cereal is fully covered, otherwise it won’t set as one cake shaped piece!
When everything is covered in chocolate, scoop the mix into the cupcake cases making sure they’re at least half full.
When your cupcake cases are full, decorate with Mini Eggs on top of your nests and leave it to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes on the top shelf of the fridge.
