Easter Cakes and Cupcakes
Easter is another tradition that is a favorite and celebrated in different cultures all over the world. Easter is known to be the most important religious celebration for the Christians. We also tend to link spring and Easter together. Spring flowers and green grass and a cute bunny is bound to put a smile on all our faces after a long winter. Flowers and crosses is not all Easter has come to be known for, from decorating easter eggs to the Easter bunny himself and the infamous Easter egg hunt, Easter is full of fun traditions for kids and families to enjoy together.
We all love Easter morning when we search for the Easter eggs that were left for us by the beloved Easter bunny, of course for many people the highlight is the time with family over a feast. Easter dinner is traditionally know to serve ham or turkey. Our personal pick here is turkey and cake for dessert instead of pie.

Jelly beans, mini eggs, candy easter treats make a great addition when decorating cakes especially with children as candy is easy to work with.
