Easter Inspirational Bakes: Bunnies, Eggs & Plenty of Chocolate!

 In Baking, Inspiration, Seasonal Bakes

Easter is just around the corner and (in theory!) it’s finally starting to get warmer and lighter. Easter is an exciting time for us as it marks the start of the new wedding season for the year and from now until Christmas we’ll be busy with 2018 wedding cakes.

But as holidays go Easter is a bit of a bakers’ favourite. We love working with chocolate and Easter is a great excuse to have some fun in the kitchen. We shall be taking a few days off over Easter and are planning on some nice day trips and walks around Devon. Who knows, if it’s sunny enough we may even brave the beach!

One thing is for sure though, our Easter will involve chocolate, and lots of it! Liam normally bakes a big Simnel cake for Good Friday to tide us over until the chocolate eggs come out on Sunday. And given how popular they were last year he’ll doubtless be baking up some mini egg and crème egg cupcakes to take to the family for Easter Sunday.

Easter really is a great time to be creative in the kitchen and if you’re looking for some inspiration we’ve scoured Instagram for some of our favourite seasonal bakes. Of course there are plenty of chocolate, eggs and some modern takes on the traditional marzipan Simnel cake.

And Easter wouldn’t be the same without our furry friend the Easter bunny… so one of our own animal celebration cakes even makes it in to the mix!

Whatever you’re up to this Easter have a great time and enjoy!
