Looking for Easter cupcake ideas? Youll love this Cadbury Creme Egg frosting. Its a classic vanilla frosting recipe with crushed Cadbury Creme eggs. These eggs only come around once a year, so take your Easter desserts to the next level with this frosting!

As soon as Valentines day wraps up, I am the one hunting down Cadbury Eggs so I can get my fix. Usually I start with mini eggs, but its almost a requirement to get my hands on at least ONE Cadbury Creme Egg before Easter is over.

I am always looking for festive desserts, and when it comes to Easter desserts, theres no shortage of adorable ideas.

This time I am going all out with Cadbury Crme Egg Frosting. This is my classic vanilla frosting loaded with crushed Cadbury eggs. There is no part of the egg that goes to waste here, the whole dang egg goes in the mixing bowl so youll get little pieces of chocolate mixed amongst the creamy filling.

How to Make Cadbury Egg frosting

  • First it starts with my base recipe for vanilla frosting. This recipe uses COLD BUTTER. I know this sounds unconventional, but starting with cold butter allows you to control the consistency of the frosting so its not too soft.
  • First, I make my vanilla frosting base recipe. This recipe calls for COLD BUTTER. I know it sounds strange, but starting with cold butter allows you to control the consistency of the frosting and keep it from becoming too soft.
  • Then when youll slowly add the powdered sugar with the liquid ingredients and be sure to generously beat the frosting with each addition so its nice and fluffy.
  • For this recipe, I used the regular sized Cadbury Crme Eggs. Dont forget to remove every last bit of those sticky wrappers. You can toss them right into the mixer and let the mixer break them apart.

You can serve this frosting with any of my homemade cupcakes recipes including my Chocolate, Vanilla or Yellow cupcakes. As you would expect, the frosting is pretty sweet, so a little bit goes a long way.

When frosting these cupcakes, be sure to use an open tip because the frosting is chunky. I recommend something like a large Ateco open round tip. Otherwise, the chunks of chocolate will get caught in the piping tip. This works best with a large piping bag or Ziploc bag.

I just dont know what I am going to do once Easter is over and I cant eat these anymore. Is anyone with me?
