Cadbury Creme Cupcakes

 I love Easter time...for two main reasons. #1, I LOVE pastels...and #2, I LOVE candy. My candy taste is equivalent to what a five year old would like. The thought of a cadbury creme cupcake is very exciting to me.
 A few notes about this cupcake though, it is HEAVY, messy and definitely not the prettiest cupcake I have ever made, HOWEVER, they are amazingly delicious(obviously if you even like cadbury creme eggs to begin with).
 I bought 12 cadbury creme treats..The batter recipe makes around 18, so you can either buy more eggs, or just have a few extra plain cupcakes..that's what I did.
 And the ganache frosting, seriously, it's amazing. I made the ganache frosting before I even started the cupcakes, because I chose to use a whipped ganache, which has to be chilled before using.

Ganache Frosting Ingredients:
- 16 ounces chocolate, chopped into small pieces
 -2 cups heavy cream

- Place chocolate in bowl
- Heat heavy cream on stove on medium to high until it boils
- Remove and pour over chocolate, stir
- Cover with foil for 5 minutes
- Uncover, stir well, cover with plastic wrap, and put in fridge for an hour
- After an hour, mix until peaks form, and then decorate!

Cake Ingredients:
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cup flour
1 1/4 cup milk
Cadbury Eggs (frozen overnight)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

- Mix butter until pretty smooth
- Add sugar and beat well
- Add eggs
- Mix in all other ingredients.

Add a little batter to the cupcake liners, then place egg in the middle. Pour more batter on until egg is almost covered.

Bake for 20-25 minutes...I only baked for 20 but, honestly, they could have used a few more minutes.

Take out and let cool them cool completely before adding icing.

Again, not the prettiest, but worth making for sure!



  1. wanna know something? As a graphic designer, I worked on that Cadbury Egg box design in your first pic! I did a ton of work for Hershey in my 1st design job!!! Your blog here is so "sweet." Pun intended ;) Love it!

  2. In the process of making these right now ;) I'm excited to try them!

  3. I made them. They blow my mind they are so good. One thing was I couldn't get the icing to ever get harder.

  4. really?? Bc I thought mine was too dry/hard??? Did you put it in the fridge and then whip it????

  5. I didn't who it because it was still so liquidy after a few hours. Do you think freezing it for a little bit would help? Even though I'm sure by the time I get back home my family will have eaten them all and ill have none to ice.
