Easter for us has become a time when we all get together as a family to spend hours running around the garden hunting for eggs and clues, chatting, playing games and of course endulging in lots of Easter sweets and chocolates.
This year when planning our Easter get together i have put my thinking cap on and come up with something that we have never done before and set my mind to making an Easter pinata cake.
I wanted to make this Pinata as Easter themed as possible and to pack the centre with lots of sweets, like you used to get on the penny tray! This got me casting my mind back to some of my favourite sweets so i popped online and had a look at shop.lovehearts.com/ and amongst a host of goodies found the perfect sweets; a whole tub of jelly fried eggs.
Once the cake had cooled i scooped out an oval of cake from each of the Easter egg halves and filled them with fried eggs. For a burst of colour i used one of my childhood favourite treats, Swizzles Matlow Rainbow drops.
I then sealed the Egg shapes together with melted chocolate and drizzled this over the cake to create an effect of a decorated egg. The boys were very excited when we cut into the cake and all the sweets came tumbling out and i am sure these will go down a treat with us all again at the weekend.
As an added bonus we have plenty of egg sweets left so these will be put to good use in the Easter egg Hunt.
