    Great cake, I have made a few variations before, a good tip is to plan ahead and buy your chocolate in the weeks before when they come on sale. Buying it all in one go can be quite surprising!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      That is a good idea, the cakes too can last in the fridge for 2 weeks or so.ReplyCancel

  • WOW!! This is so easy and yet it looks like you’ve spent hours making it. I love the Coles magazine – I’m always grabbing it for easy dinner ideas!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      There is some really delicous meal ideas in the magazine this month Lucy, I’ve got the chicken pie tagged to make soon!ReplyCancel

    I love the Easter kit Kat cake. I’m always looking for fun and easy projects to make with my 5 year old daughter. This cake will make the perfect mommy daughter project to add to our Easter this year!ReplyCancel

  • Oh my goodness, I don’t think I can choose between the cheesecake, kit kat cake and snickers cake! Too much yum!ReplyCancel

  • Niocle @ The Builder's Wife

    I cannot thank you enough, I’ve been wondering what to serve for dessert on Easter Sunday, and just like that you’ve saved me!! xxReplyCancel

  • Megan McCormick

    Great cake idea! My favourite Good Friday is soup (spicy lentil, pumpkin or creamy vegetable) with crusty bread for lunch. For dinner I always make a pasta feast – veggie lasagne, spinach & ricotta cannelloni plus baked gnocchi with napoletana sauce. One of my favourite cooking days of the year and even the most staunch meat eaters we know love the spread. Delish!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda Clark

    What a great idea – definitely have these ingredients on my shopping list….do you mind me asking where did you get the floral eggs and the little ceramic rabbit…they are so cute.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      My kids school didn’t do them last year either and I was so disappointed as I found it so much fun when I was younger. No word about it at the new school, but then again, my youngest is in Grade 5 so perhaps she maybe too old :(ReplyCancel
