Chocolate eggs versus gooey brownies this Easter

We think there is space for both delicacies this Easter, after all we wouldn’t want to see the Easter Bunny out of a job! With happiness being all about balance, we recommend indulging in traditional chocolate Easter eggs as well as treating yourself or a loved one to some of our heavenly gluten free bakes. A truly delicious case of Yin and Yang.

If you are seeking to spoil the chocoholic in your life, we can help. Likewise, if you are seeking chocolate free options we’ve got some award winning bakes, cook books and gift sets that are guaranteed to delight.

Easter cake decorating ideas:

We decorated our gluten free chocolate brownie stack with additional chocolate mini eggs and pretty foil wrapped eggs. Lidl do a great range of inexpensive options. Crème eggs cut in half and placed on your stack, then drizzled with molten chocolate would look and taste super decadent.

Decoration ideas for easter cakesMoss is a great, natural decorating prop. You can position moss around the base of your cake stand. Or try fashioning cute little nests from it. You can buy moss from your local florist or even online.

Easter cake styling ideasSeasonal flowers always look so pretty and primrose leaves and flowers are edible, tasting a little bit like lettuce. We used sweet little yellow primroses in our latest photo shoot. For more info on edible flowers, Sarah Raven’s website is helpful

Easter cake decoration ideasCute little bunnies are hopping all over the internet at the moment. We found our reuseable white rabbit ornaments on ebay. You could even hide them amongst your cake stack & see who can find them, Easter treasure hunt style…..

If you really fancy kicking over the traces and having a proper calorific blow out then try drizzling dulce de leche lavishly over your cake stack. This Argentinean delicacy is made from condensed milk and is widely available from supermarkets.

Vintage tea cups are a perennial styling favourite here at Honeybuns. Try filling a cup with scrunched up paper & topping with moss, then finish off with a cluster of mini eggs. Place your cup on a mismatched saucer & line up miniature cake slices around the saucer. This is such a pretty and incredibly easy look to achieve.
