Creme Egg Chocolate Cake – moist and delicious!

Creme Egg Chocolate Cake, so moist & delicious! @FabFood4AllCreme Egg Chocolate Cake

My son turned 18 this week, I know, I don’t look old enough you’re going to say (just humour me) so of course I had to bake him a birthday cake. My daughter likes to mix things up when it comes to her birthday cake choices but my son’s favourite is my Olive Oil Chocolate Cake as it is light, moist and oh so chocolaty! This year I wanted to cover the whole cake in icing and as we had a box of Creme Eggs going spare I decided to chop them up for an Easter themed cake. So that’s how this Creme Egg Chocolate Cake evolved.

We had a lovely day going for a walk to a pub by the canal followed by a meal out in the evening with family and to finish off the day 18 candles were scattered across the Creme Egg Chocolate Cake which my son blew out in haze of smoke! There was one slice left today (day 3) which was as good as the day it was baked and I generously let my son have it:-)
