Easter Treats!


I got so excited over all the treats I was seeing on food blogs and in real life that I thought I was going to die. I knew I had to try something myself. Then I had a brilliant idea: cupcakes with Cadbury Creme Eggs in the middle! I wanted to make them fast so I bought a yellow cake mix, the eggs, and some pink frosting. This was more about testing out the idea than testing out original recipes.

Here are my eggs, and the cake mix with the eggs, water, and oil.

Next, I filled six of the twelve cupcakes with a creme egg, and covered them in batter.


Meanwhile, I also started working on this butterfly shaped caked that I saw on the back of the Easter M&M’s bag. It’s quite simple; bake a 9″ cake, cut it in half, and cut out a little piece for the wings. When the cupcakes came out, they looked normal.


I piped some pink frosting on and got prepared to taste the yummy chocolaty goo inside.


But unfortunately, they were kind of gross. Maybe it was because I didn’t use high-quality chocolate. I’m not sure. But they were not yummy.


But then, on the regular cupcakes, I used some of the aforementioned M&M’s to make a pretty flower.


And my butterfly cake came out well too! I am definitely going to incorporate M&M’s into my decorating repertoire.



A Birthday Visit

My little brother Eddie came down to Miami from Boston to visit me, and his birthday is this month. Of course, I had to make him a cake. All I did was make a cake from a box. It was funfetti! For the frosting, I used the Sturdy Whipped Cream frosting that I have used before. As for the decorations, I didn’t get too crazy because I was kind of hung over when I made it.
