I have a bestie in the UK that is following our Carleton Place Blog. She is going to add some neat tidbits here and there. They don’t have Nanaimo Bars or Date Squares in the UK, so next time Victoria will share how she fared out baking Canadian.
Welcome Victoria Norris.
Here is how she describes where she lives.
Well, I live in Ely (pronounced to rhyme with “wheelie”) but there is also an Ely in Wales, so I always write it as “Ely, Cambridgeshire“, or I suppose you could call it “Ely, England” just to avoid any confusion. This is going to be great fun!
Last week I posted a picture of Easter Flowers on Facebook and she posted one of her Spring displays in England.

Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs
- 4 Cadbury Creme Eggs, chilled for 1 hour
- 1/2 cup vanilla buttercream, colored yellow with food coloring
- red sprinkles, to garnish
- 1Unwrap your first Cadbury Creme Egg. Give it a long, hard look and ask if it is ready to meet its destiny.
- 2Using your very sharp knife, gently slice the egg in half lengthwise, following the seam that keeps the two egg halves together. The egg should separate into two separate halves fairly easily; each will have a dollop of fondant inside. Leave the fondant inside of the egg halves.
- 3Using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip, pipe yellow buttercream in a spiral so that it covers the entire exposed inside of each egg half (directly on top of the fondant). You’ll use about 1-2 teaspoons’ worth of frosting per egg.
- 4Garnish with red sprinkles to mimic the look of paprika.
- 5Repeat with the remaining egg halves.
