No tutorial for this one, sadly, but it was sent in by the lovely Little Rascal Reviews and I think you’ll agree it’s a fabulous idea for an Easter cake.

We’ll definitely be giving it go – how cute is that bunny??

Make your own Easter egg

Lakeland kindly send us some egg moulds, a melting pot, spoon mould and chocolate this weekend, and we had a wonderful time brushing chocolate onto the moulds, layering it up and ultimately producing two perfect Easter eggs!

I’d thoroughly recommend trying it for yourself. There’s a trick to getting the chocolate to layer up perfectly: let the chocolate cool and thicken a bit before you start brushing it on. As long as it’s cooled a little and you do it in thin layers (we did 5), allowing it to fully set between each layer, and then leave it in the fridge for 20 mins, it should pop out perfectly!

Disclosure: we were sent the Lakeland items for review. No payment was received. All posts are 100% honest.
