Help me develop a new easter cheesecake

im_nomad | Mar 15, 2008 11:08 AM

I want to do something fun....more so than elegant (but please also share any elegant suggestions too !!). I would be good to go with the basic cake recipe, but i'm looking for suggestions on interesting or fun add-ins to make the cake more easter like.

I thought of baking small chocolate easter eggs right in the cake..does anyone have any experience doing this? My thoughts were maybe using the cadbury mini-eggs with the colored coatings that perhaps would blend in a little through the cake.

Another thought was using the peanut butter eggs in the cake......

I've experimented some with colorings and flavors in cheesecakes having made a "blue hawaiian" cake once that had both blue curaco and a bit of coloring in it....but it came out kind of blue-ish green. I have a recipe for a nice lemon swirl cheesecake already, as well as raspberry options. I had thought of a cake once based on the superkid or moon-mist icecream that has lots of colorful swirls....but never got around to making it. So that could be another option.

Anyway, open to all suggestions !!!
