  3. Pour boiling water into a jug and submerge a teaspoon in it.
  4. Wipe the teaspoon dry then use it to cut an beak from an orange chocolate buttons - repeat until you have 6 beaks.
  5. Pipe a small blob of buttercream onto your serving plate to hold the creme egg upright.
  6. Then position two orange coloured chocolate buttons at the front, as feet.
