Joyeuses Pâques!

Joyeuses Pâques!

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.

For some homemade Easter treats, try the Mini Easter Macarons, Fig & Pistachio Palmiers or Sweet Orange Calissons. Perfectly served in classic Bonne Maman jars as sweet Easter treats or as a selection of Easter petit fours for the table!

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 Vanilla & Almond Plum Layer Cake. A special treat for Easter, but suitable for any occasion, remember to add the final layer of Ricotta Frosting and flower about 4 hours before serving.

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!

As William Morris, perhaps our most famous pre-Raphaelite said:

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful"
