Cracked Egg Cupcakes


 What a fun April Fools joke or a great Easter surprise dessert! From  What's New Cupcake......Cracked Eggs!
Materials Needed
12 baked mini cupcakes, flavor your choice
Ready made white frosting
Home made or store bought lemon curd
White melting chocolate, almond bark or Wilton candy melts
plastic Easter eggs
paint brush
empty egg crate




 To make chocolate eggs, melt over double boiler. Lightly oil shells. Here is a tip, use only the top half of egg that is oval on top and elongated, the bottom breaks too easily when removed!

 Place a couple teaspoons of melted chocolate in egg and swirl, using paint brush to cover sides, Place in fridge to harden, repeat, building up chocolate to an even coat with no thin spots. This will take some time so do it a day ahead even!
When set, remove. Some broken pieces are exactly what you need so don't feel bad if you break a couple.










 Frost cupcakes and place a dollop of lemon curd on each. Place Egg pieces and broken chunks on top. Surprise!

Get the heck out of Dodge! I need to get that cookbook, I was just thinking I need to get creative with some cupcake making. This would be good for Easter, I wonder if they have any others that would be Easter related?
