How do I make the Crème Egg Poke Cake?

Step 1: Prepare the chocolate cake

Bake the chocolate cake in a 9×13 baking dish according to the package instructions. Allow the cake to cool completely, then use the handle of a wooden spoon to poke holes in the cake.

Step 2: Make the cream filling

To make the cream filling, pour the corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium low heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are just beginning to simmer. Reduce the heat to low and add the powdered sugar. Whisk until the sugar is fully incorporated, then remove from heat.

Step 3: Add cream filling to the cake

Spoon half the mixture into the holes on the cake, making sure not to completely fill each hole. Add the yellow food coloring to the remaining filling and stir to combine. If the filling begins to harden, reheat it over low heat until it melts again. Spoon the remaining filling over the top of the holes in the cake. Let the cake rest at room temperature for at least one hour, until the filling is set.

Step 4: Decorate the cake

Spread the chocolate frosting over the top of the cake. Cut six of the Cadbury eggs in half and decorate the top of the cake with the egg halves. Finely chop the remaining eggs and sprinkle the pieces over the top of the cake.
