Cute Easter treats for the whole family

Easy Easter cake and biscuit ideas

We love a clever cake design, and Easter holds many opportunities for cute ideas. Our favourite has to be the bunny bottom cupcake, complete with marshmallow tail.

We also have a traditional recipe for chocolate Rice Krispie nests – they're a great way to use up a glut of chocolate eggs.

We've also included ready-made cakes and biscuits in some of these recipes, which you can easily buy in your local supermarket. If you'd prefer to bake your own, you can't beat BBC Good Food for easy-to-follow recipes.
