Nutella Cake Tips

So a few tips to make your Nutella Cake making smoother:

  • Microwave the peanut butter too to make it easier to mix in.
  • If you prefer you can replace the peanut butter with extra Nutella. It is all good.
  • Keep the crème egg in the fridge or even freezer for a couple of hours beforehand to make it easier to cut.
  • Feel free to chop up a few crème eggs and add them to the Nutella Frosting in the middle of the cake.
  • You can make the cake 1-2 days ahead of time of time, just store the cakes at room temperature all in some plastic wrap.

 Nutella Frosting

This Nutella frosting is the easiest thing in the whole wide world. I use it regularly.

Step 1. Warm the Nutella for about 30-45 secs in the microwave.

Step 2. Then you spread some on the base cake, sandwich the two cakes together and spread some more on the top.

No need to mess around making any extra frosting. This recipe is all about eaaaaaaaaasy…..

However, if you do want some Nutella buttercream frosting then why not check out this video from Cupcake Savvy’s Kitchen that shows you how to make it.
