As soon as I saw this darling Easter idea I wanted to share it with you all. I am admittedly not talented enough at baking to create something like this but my friend Christine of Christine’s Confections makes these darling Easter ‘Smash Cakes’ and she graciously allowed me to share this fun idea here.
When she posted these for sale on her social media pages, I immediately ordered these egg smash cakes for our family Easter celebration. My kids are a bit too old to appreciate these nowadays but we’re hosting family and I think my nephews will get a kick out of them.
Not only do you break these chocolate cakes with a hammer (!), but they are filled with candy, how fun is that? She makes both bunny and the eggs in several flavors, they are just adorable.
Christine is the kind of neighbor everyone wishes they had (I miss her now that we’ve moved!) she is the kind of person that would show up with dinner if I was sick or lended me her washing machine when ours went down. I so miss having her right across the street! I am thrilled she is sharing her baking talents now with the world with her new business, Christine’s Confections.
She is super talented, she created these beautiful cupcakes for my daughter’s Ballerina Birthday Party (gosh my daughter was so little back then!) and I always enjoy seeing what Christine comes up with. If you are local to the Northern Virginia area you can order from her but you can also follow her on Facebook or on Instagram to see all the homebaked sweets she creates.
I don’t know exactly how she makes these cute smash cakes and of course I don’t want to give away her trade secrets but it seems to me like she makes chocolate molds and fills them with candy. She includes the fun lightweight hammer so that you break them open to reveal the candy inside, a fun surprise especially for kids.
She also makes darling hot chocolate bombs and cakesicles (decorated cake pops) and cupcakes. She is a very talented baker, and I appreciate that she helped us make our Easter celebration a little more special with these egg cakes. I also appreciate that she allowed me to share these fun creations with you all, I hope you will follow her social media pages.
We’re having a family Easter celebration but I am determined to keep it easy and low-key. We’ll be attending church that morning so when I get home I hope to have everything ready to go. To be honest, I just ordered a Honeybaked Ham (my boys favorite), and plan to make some of Christy’s Sharp Mustard to serve with it. We’ll have traditional Easter sides and then after our meal, the kids can smash their Easter egg cakes and enjoy the treats inside.
Easter is not about cakes or candy, but this year we are ever more grateful to have our family here to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus along with us. Our hope is in Him every day, but on Easter we especially remember that it is through his death he brings us our hope and salvation.XO,
