Cadbury Cream Egg Twisted Cupcakes

Cadbury Cream Egg Twist Cupcakes
I had to make one more batch of Easter cupcakes because I bought myself Mini Cupcakes by Leslie Fiet.

Cadbury Cream Egg Twist Cupcakes
The frosting on these cupcakes are a little dark for Easter but I really wanted to do something with a Cadbury egg this year and I’ve already seen a lot of cupcakes with yellow frosting so I styled mine as a Twisted candy bar.

I made a vanilla cupcake and topped it with vanilla frosting mixed with the centers of cream eggs and twisted with some chocolate frosting.

As it’s been so hot I put my cupcakes in the fridge so the frosting doesn’t melt. The cupcake recipe I used is very fluffy and not overly sweet due to the tart fruit puree. The super sweet frosting balances it out a little.

Happy Easter!
Cadbury Cream Egg Twisted Cupcakes



1/2 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

2 tbs vanilla

1 tbs vanilla paste


2 cups self raising flour

1 cup sugar

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Twisted Frosting

10 Cadbury Cream Eggs (chilled)

Vanilla Frosting (homemade or store bought)

Yellow gel coloring

Chocolate Frosting (homemade or store bought)


  1. Line a muffin tray or mini muffin tray with paper liners and preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C. In a large bowl beat the wet ingredients together with an electric mixer on low speed.
  2. In a small bowl stir together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat on low for a minute. Turn on high and beat for 30 seconds. The lumps should disappear.
  3. Fill each case three quarters full and bake for 20 minutes (17 minutes for minis) and set aside to cool.
  4. Make the frosting. Cut the cream eggs in half and scoop out the centers into a medium sized bow. Save the chocolate shells to eat later. Mix the centers with 1 cup of vanilla frosting. Add yellow food coloring if desired.
  5. In a piping bag with a star tip place the yellow frosting in and push it to one side. Place the chocolate frosting on the other side. When your piping and squeeze the bag the two colors will swirl.

    How clever are these?

    Do they taste as good as they look?

    I work for Cadbury and am always looking for ways of incorporation our chocolate into my cupcakes in my spare time.

    Anyone have any recipes with other Cadbury bars?

    Would love to make Curly Whirly cakes! Xx

  7. hmm – the appliance fairy. Are Smeg fridges and Magimix whisks available or only if you've been really, really good. :)

    The creme egg cupcakes look too good to say no to though.

  8. Heaven is a Cupcake

    Those look great! I bet they're sickly though.

    I could really do with a new oven from the appliance fairy but I have a feeling that's a little too much to ask for!!

    Mmmmm, these look delicious! Just made a tray of pink cupcakes for Easter! Oh, my wish for the appliance fairy is for a stand mixer! After having one for about 15 years, my 17 year old son decided to make a protein concoction in my mixer. As he mixed, I smelled something burning, it churned and sputtered and suddenly came to a halt and was dead! It had been working perfectly fine before that!

    I love your blog! I'm sixteen and really new to the blogging community (as in I started less than a week ago!) and I just found your blog. I love making cupcakes too and the flavors and presentations of yours are so creative! I'm sure I'll be stealing some of your recipes! :)
