Boiled? Painted? Chocolate?
The tradition of giving eggs at Easter time – in pre-Christian times, to celebrate the arrival of Spring – can be traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans for whom the egg was the symbol of life…
As well as Easter egg hunts children will love the fun of creating Easter treats, decorations and cards. Bonne Maman jars make ideal receptacles for the odds and ends involved – applique flowers, mini painted wooden eggs, ribbons, bows and little fluffy chicks; all can be easily seen and stored.
If friends and family are visiting for the Easter weekend it could be the perfect time to crack a few eggs too and wow them with a wonderful Cappuccino Caramel Torte. A special treat for Easter, but suitable for any occasion, this cake freezes beautifully so can be made ahead.
Or try an impressive new take for teatime with Lemon and Wild Blueberry Swirl Cake – a classic ‘cut and come again’ cake with a contemporary twist!
