That time of year has come around again to ditch the diet and indulge in an Easter egg! Superstore shelves are stacked with an array of chocolate bunnies, Mini Eggs and Easter eggs, and they are currently flying straight off the shelves! If you’re celebrating the Easter Bank Holiday with friends and family, why not make cakes for everyone to enjoy? With so much chocolate around, people will enjoy switching to a delicious selection of cakes instead. What’s more, baking your own gives you the chance to show off your creative side and make the perfect cakes for your occasion.
Easter Cereal Cakes
This style of Easter cake takes me back to my childhood when my mum and I would create cakes from Shredded Wheat, Cornflakes and Rice Krispies. We would coat them with delicious, creamy melted chocolate, and top with Mini Eggs. This is simple enough for children to join in and make their own. These adorable cakes which look like eggs in a nest are absolutely perfect for the Spring season!
Easter Cake Pops
There is something so whimsical about cake pops. They look fantastic and are an easy alternative to baking a huge cake. Serving cake pops have some huge advantages when it comes to dessert time… no cutting, serving or mess! Perfect. Check out Craftsy.com for the ingredients and method to make these tasty treats yourself.
If you don’t fancy baking, why not opt for just creating the topping instead? This tutorial on rosebakes.com shows you how to make an adorable fondant chick topper for cupcakes. Either buy some cupcakes from a shop, or make your own with a basic sponge mix. The topping is the main attraction here and will definitely stand out. With little to do yourself, this Easter cake looks fantastic.
Easter Bunny Cake
Even if you aren’t the best baker in the world, you can still impress your guests. This amazing bunny cake below is made by using mainly Betty Crocker ingredients. With just a small amount of baking, cutting and decorating involved, you can pick the ingredients up from the store and get baking! You can find the full list of ingredients and method on the Betty Crocker website.
I hope you all have a fantastic Bank Holiday and enjoy plenty of goodies.
