 Ingredients!

  • 125g/4oz butter or margarine
  • 125g/4oz caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 125g/4oz self-rising flour
  • 300 grams buttercream
  • Six to eight bags of mini chocolate eggs
  • Cake board
  • Pallet Knife

Instructions!

  • Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  • Line two 18cm/7in cake tins with baking parchment
  • Cream the butter and the sugar together until pale. Use an electric hand mixer if you have one.
  • Beat in the eggs.
  • Sift over the flour and fold in using a large metal spoon.
  • The mixture should be of a dropping consistency; if it is not, add a little milk.
  • Divide the mixture between the cake tins and gently spread out with a spatula. Bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool.
  • Sandwich the cakes together with jam, lemon curd or whipped cream and berries or just enjoy on its own.
  • Start by covering your cake all over with a generous layer of buttercream, approximately five millimetres thick. Smooth it over with a palette knife; however, it doesn’t need to be perfect!
  • Have your chocolate eggs ready to go and, starting at the base of the cake, begin sticking the eggs to the cake in colour pairs, (two white, two pinks, two yellow, two purple) repeating the pattern all the way around the base.
  • For the second row of eggs, repeat the same pattern of colour pairs but shift the pattern along anti-clockwise by one egg.
  • Build up the layers of eggs row by row, making sure to shift the pattern along anti-clockwise by one egg every time you start a new row.
  • Repeat the pattern on top of the cake, starting from the outside edge and working inwards in concentric circles.

 

We hope you found it easy to make, but most of all we hope that everyone enjoys it!
