Easter Bird's Nest Cake!* |Food



I came up with an idea to do an Easter food themed post because, Easter's approaching and well i like food basically. So i searched around and this picture popped up of a chocolate bird nest cake, and it looked deeeeelish, i had to try it! Now i'm going to be honest here and tell you that i'm a poor excuse for a woman as i can't cook to save my life, for example, I manage to burn pasta... (yes i just admitted that) SO obviously I needed some help, and luckily George is an awesome cook so he helped. Well he had no choice in the matter really.
(who wears the trousers in the relationship...)

So we popped off to the supermarket to pick up the ingredients
Caution: People on diets look away now (im sorry)

We have:
2 packets of Wright's Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix (to make 2 separate cakes)
Vegetable oil (4tbsp per cake packet)
150ml Double Cream
Betty Crocker Buttercream Style Icing
Mini eggs
4 Flakes

We cheated a little bit and brought ready made cake mix but obviously you can make your cake which ever way you prefer. The packet mix was highly recommended to us though so we thought we'd give it a try, plus it meant buying less ingredients haha. 
**Therefore the cake baking part was pretty simple so then came the cream filling, which again was surprisingly simple. All we did was just whisk the double cream till it thickened and smoothed it over the top of one of the cakes before then putting the other cake on top. From here we cut a circle in the middle of the top cake about an inch deep, then covered the entire thing in icing including the hole.
Now's the fun part, break up the flake into little pieces and basically throw it onto the cake (you don't want it neat as it's supposed to resemble a nest). Finally fill the hole with as mini easter eggs as you desire, and decorate however you like.**
(How are cute are those chicks though i got them from Sainburys)

I was a bit apprehensive about tasting it but it tastes oh so good SO MUCH CHOCOLATEY GOODNESS.

Now Enjoy!
