Easter baking - I'm looking for ideas please
March 14, 2008 5:03pm CST
I'm trying to think of some Easter related baking ideas, but I'm not coming up with many so I thought I'd ask for help here. It could be a cake or biscuits, but I'm not terribly good at fancy decorations. In fact, I'm fairly new to baking full stop, but I'm trying to improve to I'm willing to have a go. These cakes or biscuits are to go to my neighbours. I normally give them either marmalade cake or banana cake, but I thought something Easter themed would make a nice change. What do you suggest?

I made Easter nests with my kids today, a very nice twist on krispie cakes!! I broke up a whole load of Shreddies cereal and added melted chocolate, once I put some of the mixture into paper cases I decorated with a few chocolate eggs YUMMY!! you could also try hot cross bun and butter pudding, using hot cross buns spread with ginger jam intead of bread.

I LOVE the hot cross bun & butter pudding idea. My family love bread & butter pudding so that would go down a storm. I'm not sure my neighbours would be so keen, but I hadn't thought of getting the kids involved so the first idea might be worth a try. Thanks so much for the ideas!
