Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes

As a big fan of Cadbury Creme Eggs this time of year you can imagine my excitement to see this pin for Cadbury Creme Egg cupcakes!!


There weren't any details included with the original post, so I winged it and made regular cupcakes and put Cadbury Creme Eggs in the middle. First I put enough batter to hold them up, then I placed them in vertically.

Then I poured the rest of the batter over the Creme Eggs and decided to tilt them horizontally so they would be completely covered.

I baked them as usual, iced them with some spring icing and they turned out picture perfect! Then I carefully packed them into tupperware, and put them securely in the trunk so they wouldn't slide around as we headed to my folks house for Easter Brunch...

This is how they appeared upon arrival :( Apparently either my husband drove to my folks house like a bat out of hell (I don't remember feeling my life was at danger at any point on this trip) or the icing was pretty soft and I should have put these in the fridge overnight to make the icing harden a bit for transit. As much as I love to blame someone else for errors, I'm pretty sure this one was on me.

Oh well, the good news is they still tasted pretty good. Here's one cut in the middle so you can see how they turned out. Not quite as pretty as the one in the original picture (I'm wondering if they froze the eggs before baking or something) but you can still tell there is a Cadbury Creme Egg in there. I'm not sure how I'd rate these. Fun to say there's a Cadbury Creme Egg in your cupcakes at Easter, super easy to make... and tasty, but much tastier than a regular cupcake?? Eh... a little extra sugary crunch in the middle which was nice, but they didn't blow my socks off like the Jack and Coke Cupcakes I made a few months ago.
