Okay, so we all love chocolate right?
Easter is one of my favourite times of the year! I love all the bright colours of nature and all the little baby animals that are about. Also, I love baking and this is a good opportunity for me to make lots of cakes. As I am arty, I like to experiment and I’m hoping to get better with my cake decorating skills. After all there’s plenty of mouths to feed so I best get planning now!
I’m dying to make much more than I did last year!
So, for starters I’m going to be making your typical easter egg baskets. Simple. 2 ingredients, some decorations and bobs your uncle! Love these as all the adults eat them too!
Last year I had made sheep cupcakes with my sister. This was a really fun decorating experience as we were trying to balance the marshmallows on top of the cupcake making sure they didn’t fall off haha!
They turned out really good. (Even though some of them look like they’ve had a flour fight). Really innocent one at the back there, definitely the ring leader!
Here’s a picture of them.
It’s shaun the sheep.
I also made a chocolate cake and decorated it in my own easter style. Recipe from Mary Berry’s cookbook. This was such a sugary cake so if you don’t like too much sugar I wouldn’t recommend it. However the devil’s food cake is also amazing! A lot cheaper with the amount of sugar I used in Mary Berry’s…
So this year I don’t know what to make? So far I have ideas which include;
- Bunny Butt Cake
- Traditional Carrot Cake
- Mini Easter Egg Cakes
- Easter Chick Cupcakes
- Lemon Flower Tarts
- Chocolate and Mini Egg Cheesecake
- Bunny Cupcakes
- Cadbury Egg stuffed Croissants
I will post another blog of how my baking has turned out!
Any questions, ideas or recipes give me a quick message.
Thanks Guys 🙂
