    Cadbury Egg Cupcakes are giant vanilla cupcakes stuffed with delicious Cadbury creme eggs and topped with a creme egg laced frosting. The perfect Easter cupcake idea!

    I can not take credit for this idea nor consider myself a culinary genius. Okay, maybe not a culinary genius, but a Cadbury Creme Egg fanatic.

    I pinned a photograph to my Pinterest wall a few months back, however when I went to retrieve it there was no recipe attached. I was waiting for creme eggs to be available and now… they were!

    The problem solver that I am said “gotta make up a recipe yourself!” The day in question was a busy day and I took the shortcut of using a box cake mix.

    First try: cake mix + Cadbury Egg = perfection. It is a rare occasion that a new creation turns out perfect the first time. It is also rare that it is so gosh darn simple. This was cause for celebration therefore these monstrous creme filled cakes were consumed with a bottle of rose bubbly!

    Couple of notes before you embark on your Cadbury Egg dessert making:

    • Make sure you purchase extra large muffin/cupcake liners. Cadbury Eggs are not compact enough for the regular size and you don’t want the top peeping out or else it will melt. You can use mini Cadbury Eggs in a regular cupcake liner.
    • I had to send hubby to the store to purchase the mini eggs as when I initially went I didn’t think the first try would be the charmer. He did not purchase the ones with creme centers and you might notice this in the photographs. Have no fear- you can use whichever you like as long as they fit on top.
    • If you do not freeze your Cadbury Eggs,  the creme center will not be ooey gooey. It will taste the same, but be thick.

    If you have time and are not in the mood to be lazy, you can always use your favorite vanilla cake and vanilla butter cream icing recipes.

    Ingredients
    • 1 box vanilla cake mix and ingredients to make the cake
    • 20 large Cadbury Eggs divided and frozen
    • 1 can of whipped vanilla frosting
    • 16 mini Cadbury Eggs
    Instructions
    1. Prepare boxed cake mix according to package directions or make your own homemade cake mix. Preheat oven according to package directions.
    2. Line cupcake pan with extra large muffin liners. Fill each half way. Unwrap 16 large, frozen Cadbury Eggs and set one into the center of each liner. Spoon another tablespoon over the top of each egg to cover.
    3. Bake according to package directions. Due to the centers being hollow with Cadbury Eggs you won't need to bake for longer even though the overall cupcake is larger. Remove when tops are lightly browned and spring back when touched. Due to the center being filled, a toothpick test will not be an accurate indicator.
    4. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
    5. Meanwhile, place the last 4 large Cadbury Eggs into your food processor. Pulse until broken into small bits. Add can of frosting and continue to pulse until combined. Frosting will turn a light gray color.
    6. Place frosting into a piping bag with a star tip and frost away! Top each with 2-3 mini Cadbury Eggs.
    7. Keep refrigerated to hold shape. Enjoy!
