If you're tired of Easter gifts that really don't offer something truly delicious then this cake gift could be for you. Our decadent chocolate mud cake finished with a pretty muted pink frosting in a gorgeous show case box.
With an artists flair our Chefs let loose their inner "Jackson Pollock"* like style. Using an art brush they splatter rich Belgian Dark chocolate on this cake to invoke the feeling of speckled Easter eggs.
A handmade Belgian Chocolate nest of Easter Eggs sits on top of the cake. This Easter Cake gift makes for a great table centre piece. Imagine family and friends sitting at the Easter table and breaking pieces of quality chocolate from the nest or sneaking the odd Easter egg from the top of the cake.
Easter eggs according to this SBS article, began with early Christianity. In those days hard boiled eggs were stained with various natural dyes. Items like red onions and beetroot were used to produce colours to paint the eggs. Painted eggs were thought to represent rebirthing or the resurrection.
Literature however, supports the art of dying eggs as a custom that predates Christianity. According Bustle, Archeologists found decorated ostrich egg shells that may have been 60,000 years old. This places decorated egg shells back to the Neanderthal era. The egg tradition seems then to have survived through Ancient Egypt, the Pagans and then early Christianity.
The Chocolate Easter egg came to be more as a production extension. Apparently chocolate Easter eggs started appearing in France and Germany in the early 19th Century. Egg shaped they were made with dark, course and bitter chocolate.
In 1875 the Cadbury company released their first chocolate Easter egg. With the acquisition of a chocolate press, Cadbury was able to reduce the fat content of chocolate while also grinding particles to a smoother more palatable treat. Cadbury also began moulding chocolate and with that they produced the chocolate egg.Things took off in 1905 when Cadbury started producing the milk chocolate egg.
