Easter ‘nest’ cakes

imageThese cakes were pretty deluxe!

My housemate Rekha had some leftover Mascarpone cheese, so I searched for a recipe to use it in.
I made the mascarpone muffins and covered them with the chocolate ganache.
As it was around Easter time I found an idea on a packet of mini eggs where you break up chocolate ‘flake’ bars, place them on top of the cupcakes and add mini eggs, to resemble nests.

I took these cakes to my friend Kate’s to welcome her new baby – beautiful Beatrice.
Her and her husband Ross reckoned they were the best cakes they’ve had from me and her dad was pretty impressed with them too!

This is the cupcake and icing recipe:
