We’re sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts about the return of spring is the reappearance of Easter candy on store shelves, not the least of which are those oh-so-precious Cadbury Creme Eggs. Over the years our favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), has created a mouthwatering suite of recipes featuring Cadbury Eggs. And, because she’s all about sharing the sweetness, she always provides thorough instructions.

Here you see Jessie’s Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs, Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict, Cadbury Creme Egg Salad Sandwiches, Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs, and last but not least, her latest creation: Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast. It’s a thick slice of pound cake with half a Cadbury Egg in the center that’s heated on a griddle and served warm, melty and delicious. (Each link will take you to the corresponding recipe)

We don’t know where Imgur user TryAnotherPiece works, but that’s not important. What really matters is that for their coworker’s last day of work they made this incredibly awesome farewell cake. Nothing says “So long and good luck!” quite like zombies, severed body parts, and lots and lots of chocolate.

Fast food is already pretty unhealthy, so why not substitute that cheeseburger, milkshake and fries with a perfect (and perfectly edible) replica made of cookies?
This awesome cookie meal was made by the older sister of Japanese Twitter user あかり who added that her sister, “Can make anything out of cookies.” We don’t doubt it for a second and hope we get to see more of her tantalizingly tricksy cookie creations.

Oh Japan, you’ve done it once again - gone and created something outrageously cute and edible. In celebration of the Hotel New Hankyu Osaka’s 50th anniversary, the hotel bakery is making adorable Kuro Neko No Te (Black Cat Paw) sandwich pastries that look just like kawaii kitty paws.

The paw-shaped cakes are made of chocolate infused dacquoise dough with a layer of chocolate rice cream between them. The finishing touch is a daub of chocolate on each paw pad. They’re offered in milk chocolate and white chocolate flavors.

Kuro Neko No Te are on sale for the Valentine’s Day and White Day seasons at Blue Jean, a cafe/bakery found on the first floor basement of the Hotel New Hankyu Osaka where they sell for 230 yen (US$2.25) each.

The pastry chefs have done such a great job making these treats look like cat paws that we wouldn’t be surprised if they twitched when placed near a shoelace or piece of string.

Cake is awesome. No matter where you are, what day it is, time it is, what you’re wearing or what the weather is like, it’s always a good time for cake. And besides just eating it ourselves, giving cake to someone else is also awesome. You can use it to wish them a happy birthday, congratulate them, cheer them up or simply say, “I think you’re swell.” But giving someone cake isn’t always that simple. Perhaps they’re far away. Cake doesn’t generally make it through the mail unharmed.

But wait, Sandra Denneler of SheKnows.com has come up with an amazing way to send a mouthwatering slice of cake to anyone anywhere - or at least anywhere the mail goes. And thanks to her DIY recipe tutorial, you can do it too. Sanda calls these creations Cake Postcards. They look just like the real thing, but they’ll never get crushed or spoil:

"Imagine how happy and excited you’d be, if you went to your mailbox one day and pulled out a slice of cake. Now you can surprise friends and family (and probably even your mail carrier), with this three-dimensional, mailable postcard, cleverly disguised as cake. With only five ingredients in this crafty recipe — a large sponge, spray paint, caulk, spray adhesive and heavy paper — it’s a piece of cake. Literally. Postage is around $3 per slice, but the reaction from the recipient will be priceless."

Just in time for Super Bowl XLVIII, Heather Arment of A Lil’ Curious put together a great tutorial for How to Build A Super Bowl Snack-Stadium.

However we’d like to go on the record saying that it doesn’t matter if you’re watching Super Bowl 48, Puppy Bowl X or Downton Abbey. Any gathering of hungry friends is reason enough for a snacktacular spread of munchies.

Texas-based artist and Instructables contributor tchitwood created this awesomely gruesome Walking Dead Zombie Cake. She modeled the cake after one of special effects creator, director, and actor Greg Nicotero’s own appearances on The Walking Dead. He’s thoroughly revolting to behold, but being made of nothing but cake, frosting, and hand-painted fondant, we’re sure he’s completely delicious.

Perhaps the only thing better than a humongous burrito is a humongous burrito that’s actually a delicious cake. This awesome burrito cake was created by Elizabeth Marek of the Artisan Cake Company in Beaverton, OR.

Big enough to feed about 20 people, Elizabeth’s Realistic Burrito Cake is made of chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse filling wrapped in a tortilla made of fondant. The scorch marks on the tortilla were created using a crème brûlée torch and make the edible illusion even more convincing. The guacamole and sour cream are both buttercream. With the exception of the aluminum foil, all of the tasty details (including the napkin) were made using fondant.

Jenn Fujikawa of That’s Nerdalicious! created the perfect DIY Christmas tree decoration for bacon lovers: a garland that’s made of nothing but mouthwatering black pepper bacon.

"If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “You know what my Christmas tree needs? MORE BACON,” then I have a solution for you – a Christmas garland made out of crispy, peppery bacon!

Just like the nostalgic paper rings you used to make as crafts when you were a kid, in this case I’ve substituted everyone’s favorite cured pork product.”

Click here for complete instructions.

There’s only one problem with this edible garland. We know our own passion for bacon well enough to know that we’d want to eat this delicious decoration before we’d even finished hanging it on the tree. But then you’d have an excuse to cook up even more bacon!
