Easter delights

Okay, I got a little excited about Easter (and my new blog)! I decided to try also two new delights for our Easter celebrations; Cheesecake filled Easter eggs and Little Pavlova Nests.

Cheesecake filled Easter Eggs

I think the most challenging part of making these was to cut the eggs in shape. Luckily I had the best help for this from my hubby! Letting the eggs chill in the fridge before starting to cut them was a good idea.

The next step was to fill the eggs with cheesecake filling…

The filled eggs were again in the fridge for approximately 1 hour. After the filling set down, I added the “yolk”. These yolks were made using passion fruit and mango puree.

– Kinder chocolate eggs

– Lemon juice
– Vanilla sugar

And now to the other Easter delight recipe; Little Pavlova Nests

I remember eating some mini pavlovas in the summer with some vanilla filling and fresh berries. Those were really tasty, so I thought why not try an Easter version of them.

These cute ones have a chocolate layer inside and a whipped cream – mascarpone filling on top of it. For decoration I used my favorite little chocolate eggs and chocolate chips. Aren’t they adorable?

First post & Easter Nest Cake

So, this is my first blog post! I’m super excited and nervous at the same time.

As my first blog post, I want to share with you my first official Sweet Little Things cake: The Easter Nest Cake.

It’s funny how people always start to wait for the next season of the year to begin in a certain point. Easter is the time I start to look towards spring after the long cold winter time. It’s amazing to remember how the sun looks after the long darkness! Inspired by this, I decided to create a cake with a fresh spring taste with mango and coconut.

Mango gives a nice fresh taste to the cake and the hint of coconut adds softness to the taste. A perfect combination!
