Create a bird’s nest cake or make mini cupcakes

Bake and ice your favourite cake (we like this one-bowl chocolate recipe from Lucky Pony). Using a grass tip piping bag nozzle or cut a tiny hole in a ziplock bag and push the icing through. Top with mini eggs.

These cupcakes only need a swirl of frosting, some mini eggs and sprinkles to finish (because everything is better with sprinkles).

What is Easter without Easter eggs? Particularly mini eggs. Add mini eggs to brownies, biscuits and even fudge to put an Easter spin on these family favourites.

Instead of choc chips, add mini eggs to your favourite choc chip cookie recipe.
