In honor of Easter, my cheesecake goal for April was the Cadbury Cream Egg Cheesecake.
The basic recipe was simple: an Oreo cookie crust, a white chocolate cake filling, a yellow creamy topping, and a chocolate shell covering. And for fun, I added in some mini-eggs.
The big question for this recipe was how to create the yellow topping. I wanted to go for something similar to the egg’s filling, but I wasn’t sure how to do that. A couple of recipes I looked at used colored white chocolate, but that wasn’t what I wanted. Instead, I went with a frosting of powdered sugar, mixed to be very thick.
The result is a very rich cheesecake. Larger pieces will be too rich for most people. It was tasty, but the fact is, it didn’t come out tasting like a Cadbury Cream Egg. I will have to take some notes about other frosting options for future attempts. That being said, it was still a good cheesecake.The Cabury
