Creme de la Creme Egg: A Collection of Sweet Cadbury Creme Egg Posts

It's the most wonderful time of year, when Cadbury Creme Eggs proliferate in grocery and drugstores, like little sugarbombs waiting to be hatched in your mouth.

And to celebrate, I want to list a batch of my favorite posts (from my site and others) dedicated to the magical Creme Egg. You're welcome.

Interview with a Creme Egg: what goes on in that sweet little egghead? Find out here.

Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs: devilishly delicious.

Finally, this isn't a link, but I want to tell you that I had a dream last night that Adam Richman of Man Vs. Food took on the Cool Hand Luke Egg Challenge, but with Cadbury Creme Eggs. It was a beautiful dream.

 Sweet tangents here, to lead you into a sweet weekend.

Baked...potato...cookies? Like, whoa.

...which reminds me of a favorite Seattle sweet treat, the Potato.

...and speaking of Seattle, we're going to get a new vegan bakery!

...which reminds me, Shavon (who had a bake sale at CakeSpy Shop!) now has an Etsy Shop!

...and that reminds me of something else sweet: CakeSpy's Peeps Fluffernutter was featured on Parenting.com!

...and since we're talking about cuteness, how about these Chocolate Popsicle Coasters?!?

...going back to Tacoma, congrats tCake Central for this sweet article!

...and back to nonvegan Seattle baked goods, here's a controversial article about pie from Seattle Weekly. What do you think?

...and in less controversial pie territory (well, there is that bit about the raw egg), doesn't this French Silk Pie sound splendid?

...similarly delicious-sounding (and looking): Chocolate Pudding Pie on Smitten Kitchen!

...back to the cake side of things, howsabout this oldie but goodie: Fuzzy Navel Cupcakes that are cute and tasty and have booze?

...that link was from Cupcakes Take the Cake, where I also learned that Starbucks now has Cake Pops!

...but that led to a sad discovery that my bloggy BFF Bakerella hasn't been feeling so well lately. Everyone send her some mental frosting-filled and sprinkle-topped wishes, please!

...and BTW, it made me happy to look at these again and think about how great Bakerella truly is.

It's, like, SO Friday. Let's celebrate a sweet weekend ahead, starting with some awesome sugar-stuffed links:

Sweet! Sweetie Pies from MegPies (pictured top) are not only a sweet sentiment, but very cute to boot.

Fun, fun, funfetti: Peabody and I are sympatico: while I was frying some Funfetti Pancakes, she was baking Funfetti Bread Pudding.

Sweet love: I've got a bakery crush on Naeglin's, the oldest bakery in Texas! I'd love to visit this bakery, which has an interesting history and delicious menu! (Thanks Sabrina for the tip!)

Jim's Pancakes: Cute and sweet!

Sweet read: I just read (and truly enjoyed) True Confections: A Novel by Katharine Weber, a novel about a confectionery family business at war with itself. Though the story is fictional, many details about the candymaking industry ring true!

Speaking of whoopie pies, this Maine institution offers them in big, bigger, and biggest sizes.

Just donut: a fascinating recipe for doughnuts using instant biscuits.

Another week is over--let's make this weekend totally sweet, starting with some links for your viewing pleasure:

More things to Pop: Marshmallow Popcorn balls sound mighty nice.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles: All of my favorite food groups, all at once!

Float On: A new trend for 2011--floats (root beer, and more exotic) at dessert tables? I like the idea of that!

Jammin': Bet this Clementine Marmalade Jam would taste great on biscuits or in thumbprint cookies.

Forget-me-Knots: Sweet Love Knot Cookies.

Get Baked: In case you missed the news, BAKED now has brownie mixes at Williams-Sonoma!

America the Sweet: I am impressed by this Map of the USA cake. (pictured top)
