Chocolate Easter Eggs...ahhh, Cakes

I bought a brand new shiny Easter pan before Easter, with every intention to use it. But It seemed like every thing happened at once. You were the victim of my silliness just when life gets hectic. The week before Easter. I don't know about you but this little ol' blog was burn en!

First post:
I was gone on a long weekend and was dead tired to start the week.

Second post:
I had a winner to announce from my First Giveaway

Third post:
I got two packages in the mail. The first one was my BBM package from Jesika,

Forth post:
Then there was the First Day of Spring Tea Party. That was a lovely time stuck there in the middle of the week. But I pulled it off!

Fifth post:
The second package was that great chocolate from TCHO.

Sixth post:
I had entered an event called Taste and Create where I made a 50 Clove Garlic Chicken. My dead line for that was up and I had to get that published.

And it was almost Easter and I had a Daring Baker Mission to get to!

I did survive Easter and had a very nice time. I hope yours was lovely. But I still had that nagging desire to use my brand new Easter pan. Even though Easter was over. I wasn't about to wait till next year. No sirree. I was gonna make those little cakes and give them away. So into the kitchen I go. I made chocolate cakes from a mix.Yep, a mix. I know, I know. I didn't care. I just wanted to use my shiny new pan!

I made a chocolate batter and put Chai spice in half the batter. I brushed the warm cakes with raspberry jam and let cool. Then I frosted them with the Poured Fondant from Wilton. The little flower dots were a rolled fondant I bought at michaels. Just roll it out like play dough and cut out the shapes with little cutters. I just pressed them on while the fondant was still tacky.

They turned out so cute and much more 3-D then I thought. I was going to try to stick two together and make one whole egg but It wasn't needed. They baked up perfect!
These little cakes are my entry to Julia's event Easter Cake Bake. All you need to do is bake a cake, or several smaller cakes, with an Easter theme then post about it on your blog. I think these fit that bill! You'll find the round up over at Julia's A Slice of Cherry Pie.

I'm in a whirlwind just reading about your blogging activities!
Those little cakes look delicious. You are going to have to think up some creative ways to get more use out of that super pan.
