As soon as the Mother’s Day cards were off the shelves, they’ve been quickly replaced with fluffy chicks, bonnets and chocolate eggs, which can only mean one thing…that Easter is on its way!
Traditionally, Easter cakes are Simnel Cakes. A light fruit cake with two layers of almond or marzipan flavoured sponge. It is traditionally decorated with eleven marzipan balls to represent Jesus’ disciples, (minus Judas, the traitor) and fresh flowers, or more recently, sugar flowers.
Traditional Simnel Cake
Today the variations of cakes flavours are limitless and can all be adapted and decorated to create the perfect sweet treat to enjoy at Easter time. So with that in mind, we’ve put together a selection of delicious, alternative, Easter Cakes…
