1. Preheat your oven to 160C/140C Fan. Grease & line two 6 inch cake tins.
2. Melt your chocolate and butter and set aside to cool. Mix all your dry ingredients into a bowl together.
3. In a separate bowl mix your eggs, buttermilk and espresso.
4. Pour your wet mix and chocolate mix into your dry ingredients. Mix till smooth then add into your tins and bake for approx 1 hour until a toothpick comes out clean.
5. Let your cakes cool completely then slice each cake in two so you have 4 layers.
6. Now for the icing, melt your chocolate then set aside to cool slightly. Cream your butter till pale then add in your icing sugar and mix. Mix in your cocoa powder.
7. Now add in your chocolate and mix. Add in your milk tbsp at a time until you have a smooth spreadable mix.
8. Let's layer our cake! Layer using your fudge icing and some crushed Tony's eggs. Do a crumb coat and chill for 30 mins.
9. Now do your final icing layer and smooth out how you like. Chill for 30 minutes.
10. Melt the chocolate for your drip and drizzle around the side of your cake. Place in the fridge while we make the nest.
11. Melt the chocolate for your nest then mix through your cornflakes, place this mix all around the top of your cake to create a nest. Chill then fill with Tony's eggs!
12. ENJOY!
