Easter Surprise Mini Bundt Cakes

Chocolate mini bundt cakes frosted with a delicious chocolate frosting then filled the holes with mini Easter eggs – kids and kids-alike would absolutely love these. Plus, they are already in individual sizes.

As I’ve told you, I love anything cute related to Easter that’s why I’ve made these little cakes. And just because I’d also want to use the mini Easter eggs I got, I decided to make another batch of the little cakes with a little surprise. Not only kids will love them, but kids-alike, too. 😉

I was planning to make something like bird’s nests. I imagined these little cakes to have that chocolate frosting that looks like a nest and topped with mini Easter eggs… but I was so lazy to take out the piping tip and decided to do the old school type of frosting which is just to pour the chocolate frosting over the cake. I’ve thought of placing chocolate sprinkles all over the frosting, but it is not as easy as I thought. Well, maybe just because I am not that patient to carefully cover them with sprinkles. I did sprinkle the sprinkles. For what reason not to sprinkle them if they are called sprinkles? So I sprinkled the sprinkles all over the floor, too. Ooopppsss!

These cakes are simply chocolate cakes baked in mini bundt pans (well, because they are cuter) then frosted with chocolate (of course!) and lastly, I placed mini Easter eggs inside the hole up to the top. When you slice the cake…. Tada! You’ll find cute little eggs inside. I gave out some to the daughters of my new colleague, to my cousin and her colleague, too. They all loved them.

    1. Thank you, Lina. I still have few Easter chocolate eggs. And I don’t need Easter to enjoy them. I think I’ll be making more Easter desserts after Easter. 😀
