Rich Chocolate Cake with Ganache Frosting and Truffle-Egg Nest

Tucked inside nests of milk-chocolate shavings are truffle eggs tinted robin's egg blue and dusted with metallic luster. The accompanying marbled eggs are created by dipping more truffles into melted white chocolate swirled with blue food coloring.

    For Easter it might be fun just to use mundane small candy easter eggs. THey could be chocolate and even decorated. Maybe not up to MS standards but for my homespun tastes it would do for the holiday. This reminds me of the meringue bird nests my mother used to make.

    The recipe for the truffle eggs is included. Just click on the blue highlighted "truffle eggs" at the end of the list of ingredients. I want to make this cake too, but I would dye all the eggs Robin's egg blue, as any children around will also want one of the blue eggs.
