Easter Baking 🐰🐣

I’ve been up to quite a lot of baking recently. And since Easter is upon us, I thought I’d take the opportunity to get involved in some Easter baking!

I spent a few days looking for easy baking recipes to do, that also taste great and I found some amazing ones on the ‘Stork’ website.

Their recipes are cute and easy to make which is great for an afternoon with your children or just for a bit of baking fun!

Easter Cupcake Nests

These cute cupcakes with an Easter twist are so tasty and I was quite proud of these to be honest!

I started off by making a basic vanilla cupcake recipe. This was a basic mix of the following;

  • 4 oz Stork
  • 4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 oz self-raising flour, sieved together with ½ teaspoon baking powder

For the Chocolate Nest;

  • 40g Stork
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 6 tablespoons drinking chocolate powder
  • 18 tbsp of corn flakes
  • Asda Micro Mini Eggs (3 eggs on each cupcake. These are so little which made them look really cute!

I was really happy with the outcome of my cakes. Not a lot can go wrong with this simple recipe. Although if I was to do it again, I would suggest finding a less rich chocolate powder or putting less in the chocolate mix as this was quite dark and rich.

The family didn’t complain however!

I will leave the link below for the Stork website so that you can get baking this Easter – http://www.bakewithstork.com

Rice Krispie Nests

Next I went on to these beauties! My boyfriend isn’t keen on cake (crazy I know), so I decided to make a batch of these so that he had a little Easter treat.

To start I made the nest with the following ingredients;

  • 20 tbsp of Rice Krispies
  • One bar (milk) chocolate – 200g
  • 3 tbsp of golden syrup
  • 40g Stork

Then all I did was add some micro mini eggs to the top and left to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

The Easter Bunny

So I wanted to get my family some little treats for Easter and there were so many ideas that I had, but these were so simple and are homemade which added that little special touch.

For these I used the following;

  • Aldi Mini Eggs – 1 pack
  • Aldi Chocolate Bunny
  • Ribbon – I bought one with a little pastel fence design but this is entirely up to you!
  • Clear Cellophane
  • Asda Glitter Carrots

First I cut my cellophane to size, this really depends on the bunny.

Then, I put the bunny in the middle and surrounded it with mini eggs.

Next, I gathered the cellophane, tied it with the ribbon and stuck a little carrot in the gathering for decoration!

It’s literally that simple.

Easter Egg Shortbread

Finally, I made some easter inspired shortbread biscuits. These were something I found on Pinterest and I love a shortbread so I thought that these would be great to make.

  • 6oz Plain Flour
  • 4oz Caster Sugar
  • 2oz Stork

For Decorating;

  • Icing Sugar – As needed
  • Water
  • Sprinkles
  • Writing Icing Pens
  • Edible Decorations
  • More mini eggs of course!

I wish I could say that these were decorated by kids but icing isn’t my strong point and the boyfriend wanted to join in! So this is the final result…
