Chocolate Fudge Easter Egg Cakes

Courtesy of BBC Good Food 101 Recipes For Kids

Just made these and they are as pretty as a picture and so easy too!

For the cakes:

140g/5oz butter, softened
140g/5oz golden caster sugar
3 medium eggs
100g/4oz self -raising flour
25g/1oz cocoa, sifted
16 fairy cake cases

For the frosting:

85g/3oz milk chocolate, broken into pieces
85g/3oz butter, softened
140g/5oz icing sugar, sifted
packs of chocolate eggs of your choice

Pre-heat oven to 190c/Gas 5/fan 170c. Put the cakes cases into bun tins. Tip all the ingredients for the cake into a mixing bowl and beat for 2 minutes with an electric hand whisk until smooth.
Divide the cake mixture among the cases so that each one is two-thirds filled, then bake for around 15 minutes until risen. Cool on a wire rack.
For the frosting, microwave the chocolate on high for 2 minutes or in a bowl over gently simmering water. Cool slightly. Cream the butter (make sure it is really soft) and icing sugar together, then beat in the melted chocolate. If the mixture is a little hard then put a teaspoon of water in and stir, carry on adding a tiny amount of water from the teaspoon until a nice spreadable consistency is reached. Spread over the cakes and decorate with your chocolate eggs.

ENJOY….. Oh and try and leave some for the kids!
