Easter-themed chocolate cake

I had a bunch of friends coming over for the Easter weekend, so I baked a cake for everyone… and mainly for myself, haha.

I made a three-layered chocolate cake and covered the whole thing in chocolate buttercream icing. Then I stuck Kit Kats around the sides of the cake and used a ribbon to stick it together.

I then piped green vanilla-flavoured buttercream icing. I used a grass nozzle for this, although I was a bit hasty with trying to finish the piping in one go and ended up ruining some parts of the top, as you can see…

Using some cleverly placed Smarties eggs and Lindt chocolate bunnies, the result is a slightly cleaner looking cake, representing a grass meadow filled with Easter bunnies… Very fun to make! And the grass nozzle is great to use, I will be sure to use it again!
