Today we focus on the upcoming holiday – Easter!
Get in the mood!
We know that the atmosphere leading up to special holidays or occasions can get very stressful. The questions of what to bake, how to bake and whether everything is baked well runs through a baker’s mind.
Firstly, we believe that you should plan a menu of what you will be baking and make a list of all the ingredients you will need. This first step should relieve a lot of stress.
Secondly, you need to plan the amount of time needed for all the goodies that are to be baked so that you are not rushed for time.
Thirdly and lastly, remember that occasions like Easter should involve the entire family so ask for help 🙂
The perfect Easter goodies
We have plenty delightful goodies for you to bake to ensure you leave a good impression on your guests and family. For an afternoon treat on Good Friday, make moist and fluffy hot cross buns. Remember to slather Stork Bake margarine over the warm bun for extra deliciousness.
Every occasion should rightfully have a cake and Easter is no exception. For an easier cake, try our Easter Basket with Eggs cake and for more of a challenge give our Easter Egg Cake a bash.
Now that we have the celebratory cake and hot cross buns covered, we need to address the chocolate part of Easter! Seeing that Easter is all about chocolate there should be lots of it! Our Chocolate Pecan Nut Brownies, Chocolate Truffles and Choc Chip Muffins should have all the choc lovers begging for more! You can always add some mini speckled eggs as a topping to everyone in the Easter mood 🙂
Remember, when baking always use the highest quality ingredients – it will make all the difference to the end result and you cannot go wrong with Stork Bake margarine.
Presentation is key!
If you want to gift someone with baked goods over the festive Easter season, why not do so with our amazing Iced Easter Cookies and present them in a mini woven basket! This presentation ties in with the idea of hunting for Easter eggs with a basket, and the baked goods are delicious too! To protect the biscuits wrap them in cellophane.
Easter and other occasions are special and important and thus should always be celebrated. We believe that the best way to bring people together is with delicious goods baked from the heart. Have a wonderful time 🙂
