Method

  1. If you’ve bought profiterole choux buns covered in chocolate, carefully scrape the chocolate topping off half. Or make your own choux buns and leave to cool.
  2. For the egg splat topping: Mix 75g icing sugar with 1tsp water or as needed so it’s thick but still slightly runny. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the icing sugar with the yellow food colouring and a few drops of water to the same consistency.
  3. Spoon a little of the white icing over the uncovered choux buns or half the undecorated batch you’ve made. Set aside on a wire rack for 1 minute then use a teaspoon or piping bag to dot a little of the yellow icing in the centre, like a yolk. Leave to set completely.
  4. If you made your own choux buns, make the chocolate topping to cover the remainder. Mix the icing sugar with the cocoa powder and 1tsp water or as needed so it’s thick but still slightly runny. Spoon a little over the undecorated choux buns and leave to set completely - if your readymade choux buns came with their own chocolate sauce, use it as the topping for the choux buns instead.
  5. Stack the profiteroles and Creme Eggs to make a tower. Use any extra icing to help stick them in place if necessary. Add the mini Creme Eggs in their wrappers to decorate.
