5 Dessert Ideas to Sweeten your Easter Celebration

Sweeten your Easter Celebration

Easter Celebration, predominantly observed by Christian households commemorating the resurrection of Jesus, is enthusiastically celebrated by a myriad of people in some secular contexts across the globe. Family gatherings and gifting sweets and treats to your loved ones is the highlight of the day. The best cake shops in Mumbai always take it up a notch with their creativity for festive special confections that go beyond traditional Easter eggs. They offer various options ranging from celebration cakes, easter baskets, hampers and more.

The tradition of gifting sweets during Easter comes from the practice of abstaining from guilty pleasures including certain foods, such as eggs and sweets, during Lent. At the end of Lent, the fast is broken and Easter is celebrated by indulging and sharing sweets such as Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies with others. Overall, Easter is a time of joy, celebration, and renewal of hope and faith. An integral part of Easter, the tradition of gifting sweets also contributes to the sense of togetherness that characterises this special holiday. 

1. Marzipan Easter Eggs 

These delicately decorated Easter eggs are a delectable treat perfect to bring in the holiday. Breaking an Easter egg is a reminder that out of the darkness emerges new life and is a cultural tradition that has been passed down for generations. Marzipan Easter eggs are made using a combination of cashews, sugar and almond extract, lending a sweet nutty flavor with each bite. The hallowed out centre of the egg can be filled with sweets. The outer shell of the egg can be decorated with traditional piping, colourful sprinkles or other Easter-themed decorations, adding a festive touch. 

You can choose from a myriad of decorated eggs, each uniquely decorated, to gift your friends and family.

2. Chocolate Bunnies 

Chocolate bunnies have become a popular symbol of Easter and are a delicious way to indulge in the holiday spirit, enjoyed by both adults and children. These bite-sized delights come in three flavors: white, milk and dark chocolate. Most of the chocolate bunnies available are hallowed out to make biting into it easier while also filling it with various flavours like caramel or peanut butter.

The hallowed-out portion can also be filled with pieces of caramel, almonds, pecans, and butter-crunch toffee to give it that added flavour and texture. A gold easter bunny is a great option for gifting and also goes well as decoration for the golden egg hunt games. Alternatively, you can also go for a solid chocolate bunny that comes as a bite-sized treat and are adorable. If dark chocolate is used, then a zest of orange can be added to enhance its flavor while adding subtle citrus notes. This is a classic flavour pairing. 

All in all, several different types of chocolate bunnies are available to choose from, ranging from small, bite-sized treats to large, ornately decorated pieces. 

3. Floral Cupcake Basket 

This dessert comprises a beautifully arranged edible cupcake basket with a Happy Easter stamp and buttercream flowers. The cupcakes can be an assortment of flavours with buttercream piping that complements the cupcake flavour. You can opt for some of the classic cupcake flavours like vanilla, chocolate cream, butterscotch and strawberry. Or you can deviate from the conventional flavoured cupcakes and choose from flavours like chocolate salted caramel, double chocolate, chocolate chip, Nutella and red velvet. 

A loved one receiving this delightful confection is sure to feel special and loved. You can put a spin on your gift by hiding a decorated Easter egg, a fun little surprise to be enjoyed by all.

4. Themed Cookies with Festive Messages 

Gifting cookies shaped as bunnies, eggs, chicks and other Easter-themed items with a festive message is another great way to wish your family this holiday. Vanilla butter cookies are a simple yet delicious cookie option that ensures the focus is on the colourful festive message. Messages like ‘Happy Easter’, ‘Egg-citing Easter’, and ‘Hoppy Easter’ are some message options that add a special touch to your Easter cookies. These cookies can also be decorated with sprinkles or icing as a colourful and fun approach to your celebration. 

5. Simnel Cake

A classic dessert prepared mainly for Easter as a respite from 40 days of Lent, Simnel cake is a light fruitcake. The cake is packed with dry fruits and pieces of marzipan, adding sweetness and texture to the cake. If you enjoy binge-eating marzipan, then this cake is the perfect treat for you as the middle and top layer of the cake is also made of marzipan. The cake is traditionally decorated with 11 marzipan balls. They represent Jesus’ 11 disciples, excluding Judas of course. As you bite into a piece of this cake, you will notice the cake is also flavoured with hints of spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, giving you a feeling of warmth. 

A simnel cake is a flavoursome and festive dessert that can be enjoyed with friends and family during Easter Celebration.

Share the joy of the season with your loved ones by gifting them toothsome sweets and desserts. Putting thought and creativity into your festive gifts for your loved ones is what makes your gift memorable and extra special.
