If you thought Cadbury Creme Eggs were humanity’s greatest confectionery creation, Alex O’Brien Yeatts, a baking and pastry student at the Culinary Institute of America, has come up with a dessert that looks straight out of a geology textbook—not a cookbook.

Working with cake decorator Abby Lee Wilcox, Yeatts created what looks like a massive boulder. When cracked open, it’s filled with crystal-like geodes, making it look like a valuable chuck of amethyst. However, the entire thing is actually made from chocolate and sugar, and is completely edible—if you want a sugar high that will last until Christmas.

What else have you learned about British culture since you’ve been here?

…You guys have Cadbury Creme Eggs like year round, and that makes me very happy because we only get ‘em around Easter.

How do you eat yours?

One fell swoop–like a snake eating a rat I eat my Cadbury Creme Eggs.

reasons to read the upside of unrequited:

  • the main het romance and the side wlw romance are really, really sweet
  • like tooth-rottingly sweet, i can’t even think about them without grinning
  • the protag is straight, but pretty much every important person in her life is a queer woman. there’s seriously SO MUCH wlw representation. lesbians, bi women and pan women! queer women of colour! teen wlw and older wlw! wlw as mothers and wives and girlfriends! queer characters & relationships completely normalised and accepted by everyone!
  • also so many jewish characters, including a jewish protagonist and a jewish love interest
  • a fat protagonist who isn’t defined by her fatness
  • a really beautiful relationship between two sisters which explores the heartbreaking process of growing up and losing that closeness siblings have when they’re young
  • the most painfully realistic portrayal of what it’s like to be young and scared of rejection that i’ve ever read
  • cameo appearances by characters from becky’s first book! (which is all kinds of awesome and should also definitely be on your radar but it’s not necessary to read it first.)
  • the main character’s love interest says that kissing her was the best thing that has ever happened to his mouth, including cadbury mini eggs and honestly that’s the most romantic thing i’ve ever read
  • i mean the whole book is this adorable it’s nauseatingly cute and you should read it asap
better late than never

I’m not sure why Snow is crying. His sobs are hiccupy and loud, his face buried in his arm. “You- you!” he gasps.

“What’s wrong? What did I do?” I circle over to him and wrap my arm around his shoulder, pulling him in to my chest. “Let me fix it.”

“You didn’t do- do anything wrong!“ he responds, pulling back and wiping snot from his nose. I wrinkle up my face, confused.

“Then why are you crying? I don’t-” Simon reaches up and smooths out the furrow in between my eyebrows ("You’re going to have a wrinkle there”.)

“Baz,” he says after a minute, a small smile on his face. “Thank you for the basket.”

“It wasn’t any trouble, Simon. Just some candy and colored eggs I picked up at the dollar store.” I’m still clutching onto his arm, worried that he’ll start crying again.

“You don’t get it,” he sighs, a bit frustrated, but he still smiles a little. Snow looks down at the floor for a minute, then flicks his eyes back up at me. “I’ve never had an Easter basket, Baz.”

“You’ve never had an Easter basket?” It seems impossible. “Wouldn’t the Mage have-” I stop. “Wouldn’t the Bunces have given you one? Or Agatha?”

“The Bunces don’t like me much,” he chuckles. “Other than Penny.” He wiped the last of the tears from his cheeks and sniffles a bit. “There’s not much time for Cadbury eggs when you’re saving the world.”

“I suppose not,” I fret. I know the wrinkle in between my eyebrows is back. He’s staring at it. “Well, dig in, then.” I grin and tousle his hair.

Snow doesn’t move for the basket. Instead, he takes a step toward me, entwining our fingers and holding out hands to his chest. “Baz?” he whispers, eyes brimming with tears again. Emotions, I scoff silently.

“Yeah?” I give his hand a gentle squeeze.

“I love you.” Even quieter than before.

“Love you too,” I say, pressing a kiss to his cheek, then his lips. “Happy Easter.”
