What happens when it snows on Easter weekend? A few years back it did just that so I made a little Easter chocolate cake in response. Just when our corner of the world is having its spring awakening, winter won’t let go. This cake is a wave goodbye to that darn cold season and questioning, “What the heck is that white stuff doing on the back of the Easter bunny!”
I just love the idea of a cake for spring that emulates the pattern of a bird’s egg. Blue buttercream with watered-down cocoa powder (watered-down with vodka, no less!) spattered on the sides just lends itself to a really graphically appealing cake. The little speckled candy-covered chocolate eggs are kinda fun too.
