300g caster sugar
180g plain flour
50g good quality cocoa powder
1tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
100g butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
250ml boiling water
1 tub mascarpone cheese
30g icing sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
Orange food colouring
200g white chocolate
Orange “Candy” colouring
3 Cadbury crème eggs (broken up)
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
Spray the inside of the Bundt tin with a baking spray or brush with melted butter.
Sift the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt into a bowl.
WHILST CAKE IS COOLING…
Whip mascarpone, cream, sugar and vanilla together until thick enough to pipe.
Split the cake in half and pipe both creams in swirls on ½ cake, sandwich with the other half.
Melt the white chocolate, remove half into a separate bowl and colour with the “CANDY” ORANGE COLOURING. Drizzle both colours over the cake to give a nest effect.
Break up Cadburys Cream Eggs and place on top of Bundt.
