April Fools Egg Cupcakes

We made these last year and they did a great job of fooling people:

The inspiration is from "What's New Cupcake?", Karen Tack and Alan Richardson.

To make the eggs shells:

  1. Melt white candy wafers.
  2. Lightly oil a paper towel and rub the inside of the plastic eggs to coat with a thin layer of oil.
  3. Using a small teaspoon, coat the inside of the plastic egg with melted chocolate.
  4. Place shells upside down, on cookie sheet, in fridge for 5 minutes.
  5. Check and touch up any that need a second coat.
  6. When set (10 minutes) remove from fridge and carefully remove from plastic shells. You need broken shells too so don't panic when some break.

To make cupcakes:

  1. Follow your favourite recipe for vanilla cupcakes (mine is now the recipe from this book).
  2. Tint lemon curd with 1 drop of red and 5 drops of yellow food colouring by placing in a zip lock bag and squishing (Daisy loved this part)
  3. Spread vanilla frosting over the cupcakes and smooth.
  4. For the yolk, pipe lemon curd straight from the zip lock bag, just cut off the corner.
  5. Arrange the white chocolate shells on top of the cupcakes so you have whole eggs and broken.
  6. Place in an egg cup or carton.

Daisy was very pleased with our efforts.

Not sure what we will try this year yet. We are planning!!!
