Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

Oh, Cupcakes!!

Cupcakes are my thing!! I mean – I love eating them and nonetheless make them!! They are fun, pretty and you can easily let your creative mind flow and create your own little special sweet treat. Yuum..

Anyways, I few weeks ago I did what I usually do when looking for cupcake inspiration! I simply typed into Google ‘Cupcakes’! Creative search term, I know!.. haha.. As I was scrolling down through pages and pages of images, while selflessly chewing away on the addictive Cadbury Mini Eggs and drinking coffee, I changed my search term to ‘Easter Cupcakes’! Honestly, some of the images there are mind blowing and people’s creativity soooo inspires me! And lot of those images were decorated with Cadbury Mini Eggs :pĀ  That is what I decided to make that night. Find it here. šŸ™‚

But after clicking on one image which lead me to a website, which then led me to another website and so on, my search finally resulted in that I found a mouthwatering recipe on Cadbury Creme Eggs!
Cupcakes + Cadbury Creme Eggs = Oh my!! YUUUUM!! šŸ™‚

So here is my version of the Cadbury Creme Egg Recipe! This recipe is so delicious and easy to make!

Important note: Just remember to freeze your Creme Eggs before baking, otherwise it will be a complete mess!

Enjoy!! šŸ™‚
