Quick Dessert with Leftover Cadbury Mini Eggs
To make your own, here’s all of the ingredients and tools you’ll need:
- frozen pound cake, sliced (3/4″ slices)
- white icing
- Cadbury Mini Eggs
- food coloring
- lollipop sticks
- flower decorations
- hot glue gun (try a cordless one! You’ll never go back!)
- circle cookie cutter
Use the cookie cutter to cut circles out of each slice of cake. You can use the leftover pieces to whip up some cake pops (or cake pop bars if you find cake pops to be too much work).
Divide your icing into three bowls, and use the gel food coloring to dye each a different color. I used Wilton food colors – petal pink, violet (with a dab of petal pink), and sky blue (with a dab of teal).
Crush the Cadbury Mini Eggs using a mini food processor – or put them in a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin or heavy can to crush them as well.
Spread icing onto each of the cake rounds- a third of the cakes in each color. Then, dip them into the Mini Egg “crumbs”.
The last step before stacking is to prepare the toppers. I used these little flowers decorations that I found in the Michaels dollar bins. You may not find the exact colors this year, but I always see these types of flowers there, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find. Using your hot glue gun, stick a flower onto the top of a lollipop stick.
Stack three mini circles on top of each other, one of each color, and stick the lollipop sticks down through all three.
And that’s all there is to it – it’s a super simple and easy way to dress up simple, storebought ingredients. My daughters loved them, and you can never go wrong with pound cake (it’s actually my favorite kind of cake!)
