This may seem a random blog to write, but mastering cutting creme eggs in half was high on my priorities this month!
'Tis the season for Creme Eggs, and I love it!
How do you eat yours?
There's three ways apparently, according to a survey conducted by Cadbury. 53% of people bite off the top, lick out the creme, and then eat the chocolate. 20% bite straight through the egg, and a mucky 6% use their finger to scoop out the filling. More Cadbury creme Egg fun facts can be found here!
I'm baking Creme Egg themes Easter cakes for customers this week, including Creme Egg drip cake, Creme Egg brownies (and cupcakes on a seasonal theme). Order before 7pm on Good Friday if you don't want to miss out!
But back to slicing those little egg treats...
What's the best way to cut Creme Eggs in half?
The chocolate shell can crack and make a right mess if you don't cut carefully. And that gooey icing in the middle - you'll have more than egg on your face if that dries on the floor! It's a 'B' to clear up.
First, find the seal where the two halves of the egg have been stuck together - there's often a little crack or hole to start you off - and saw a sharp knife through. Turn the egg round as you saw and try not to push down as it may crack. Boom!
Note, the mini creme eggs are easier to slice.
