Easter Chocolate Nest

Happy Easter!!
--------------------------------------
This is my Easter post for this year. It is a triple chocolate fudge cake with Cadbury small chocolate eggs on top.

Below you can find a similar recipe to this one which is equally delicious! 
I used Wilton's Tip No.234 to form the chocolate nest.

Chocolate Cake

Ingredients for the Cake
200gr caster sugar
4 large eggs
170gr all purpose flour
30gr unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp unsweetened vanilla extract 


Filling Ingredients 
1 jar of diabetic strawberry jam (250gr)
(½ glass of hot water to dissolve the jam if needed)
1lt of double fresh cream
70gr unsweetened cocoa powder
50gr powder sugar (or more, it depends on how sweet you want your filling to be)

Cake Preparation Method 
1) Preheat the oven to 170ºC (338ºF).
2) Grease a 20cm round pan.
3) Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
4) With an electric mixer beat together the eggs and sugar for 8’ minutes, until light and fluffy; then add vanilla extract and the sifted flour (one tablespoon at a time). Do not over mix.
5) Bake for forty minutes. Allow 5’ minutes before you remove the cake from the pan. Set cake aside and allow to cool completely before you decorate it.

Filling Preparation Method
1) Sift powder sugar and cocoa powder.
2) With an electric mixer beat fresh cream, sugar and cocoa powder until the mixture becomes a cream. Do not over mix; if you do, you will have a cocoa butter and not a cream.

Cake Decoration
1) Divide sponge into three layers.
2) Spread strawberry jam on each cake layer and then on top of the jam, spread 1cm of cocoa cream.
3) Repeat on all layers.
4) Cover cake with the rest of the cream.
5) You can decorate your cake in any way you like.
