You may or may not have read that article about food blogging trends that need to go. One of the items listed was “stuffing things inside other things”, or something like that. Call me crazy, but sometimes you just need to stuff cupcakes with other wonderful sugary sweets, like Cadbury Creme Eggs. I took these to work for my co-workers to devour, and these babies receive more praise and compliments than anything I’ve brought into the office in the last two years. I work with a fitness enthusiast/aerobics instructor who never, and I mean NEVER partakes in potlucks and never looks twice at the junk food co-workers bring in. These cupcakes were the only exception. She just couldn’t resist the cute frosting and creme egg on top. And I’m sure she would have taken a second one home if there had been any left at the end of the day (which there wasn’t).
Fair warning, the creme egg kind melts down into a caramel blob at the bottom of the cupcake. No one seemed to mind cause it was still outrageously delicious. I wonder what would happen if you use the regular sized creme egg? Maybe I’ll give it a try next time.
