I asked Chloe what she wanted to do today whilst putting her to bed last night. Her first request was basketball! And then making cakes. Cakes I can do (obviously not hard ones or making from scratch but rice Crispy cakes I am a pro at!)
So this morning 8.30am we all went to Aldi in our pyjamas to get enough chocolate and eggs to feed a small army to make Easter Cakes.
Whilst Chloe finished her breakfast I got everything out. We made rice Crispy cakes, rocky road bites and decorated a pre-made chocolate cake with extra frosting and mini eggs.
As always Chloe insisted on tasting all the ingredients before starting.
We started with the easiest of the 3 which was decorating the cake. I so wish I could bake but I absolutely suck at it. I think it is because you have to be exact with measurements where as I’m a chuck it all in kind it cook.
Next up was the rocky road bites. This is my type of baking chuck everything in a bowl, mix and leave. We used cherries, rich tea biscuits, mini marshmallows and mini filled eggs. After the they had set in the fridge for half an hour I topped with chocolate frosting (pre-made obviously) and mini eggs.
Finally we made Rice Crispy cakes topped with mini eggs. When I say we I mean me. By this point Chloe was bored and decided she would rather watch TV!
Now all we need to do is enjoy them tomorrow on our Easter egg hunt.
