  • 1 store-bought chocolate mud cake
  • 1 450g tub chocolate frosting (or vanilla) you will have some leftover
  • 2 200g packets chocolate finger biscuits
  • Sprinkles or 100s and 1000s to decorate
  • Malteser bunnies & mini solid eggs to decorate


  1. Place the chocolate mud cake onto a serving dish.
  2. Cover the top and sides with the frosting.
  3. Place the chocolate finger biscuits around the sides of the cake.
  4. Shake the sprinkles all over the top of the cake (this will prevent the solid eggs from sticking to the frosting).

  6. Decorate with mini eggs.
  7. Secure the cake with a ribbon tied around the outside.

Recipe Notes

You will have leftover frosting and chocolate finger biscuits.
Don't add to many solid eggs (and keep them away from the edges) or the weight will push the biscuits down.
