Fererro Egg Mini Easter Cakes
idea of putting one at each place setting on Easter dinner or placing a
pretty cake stand in the center of the table for dessert. Mini cakes are
always fun and the individual sizes are great for kids, I know Ellia
I also decided to make them even more delicious with some Ferrero Rocher chocolates. I adore the hazelnut flavour, and of course they are so pretty to look at.
I started by making a box cake, which I normally wouldn’t do, but we all
know how yummy and easy they are. Bake in a 9x13in pan, and make sure
you line it with parchment paper so it comes out easily and is smooth! I
cut off the top with a cake leveler and then used various sized round
cookie cutters to cut out the mini cakes. Scrapes are excellent for
taste testing 😉
While the cake is baking, make a batch of your favourite frosting or buttercream. I used The Perfect Crusting Buttercream
from I am Baker because I wanted something that was easy to make and
would hold a design when I piped it out. I always use it with butter
instead of shortening though to make it a little more yummy. I split
the icing into three bowls and used gel food colouring to dye each one.
Then I used a Wilton 1M tip, starting in the center and swirling out to
make the little flower design. I layered a few cakes to have mini
2-tiered cakes and topped with some super delicious Ferrero Rocher Eggs.
