Easter is a holiday that I love celebrating! Spring is well and truly here, the daffodils are up and the tulips are not far behind. The evenings are getting brighter and the air temperature a little warmer.
Many years ago my younger sister started an Easter tree tradition in our family home. I was living in Canada at the time and was lucky to find beautiful wooden decorations in a little shop on Bloor West, which I still treasure today. Over the years I have picked up little bunnies or eggs, but most of the ‘new’ decorations are gifts we have received.
Cake bunting is a fun and simple DIY craft project. When you fancy personalising a cake, but icing skills are not your forte…cake bunting is the answer! To keep things easy for Easter we have a template for you to use. This year I am entertaining a large gang of family and friends and will need lots of desserts. Cupcakes are handy since they can be made in advance and keep really well too. I am going to use the Vanilla Cupcake with Raspberry Icing recipe (get it here). For the butter-cream icing, I will leave out the raspberries and mix smaller quantities of icing with pink, yellow a mauve food colouring gel. Decorate the cupcakes simply…because this Easter it’s all about the cake bunting!
