Here is a picture of this year's cake:
It was nice. I put Cadbury's Mini Eggs on top like usual. It' s similar to the white chocolate cake I made for Oestara but that had a white chocolate icing and Malteser drinking chocolate in the sponge. I liked that but but I'd say this is my favourite cake. :) I kept it in the fridge, but you can also wrap it in clingfilm and foil and freeze it.
I had another go at egg dyeing (it didn't work out so well when I did it for Oestara!) and it worked eventually. I realised the original recipe I used needs white eggs but I've been using brown. (I'm sure I used brown eggs before though and it worked). However I used another recipe where you boil beetroot in water (to get pink eggs) and then I added white vinegar and it worked! I did this a couple of days after Easter but now I have a better method for next year, lol. Here's a photo of when it was first done:
|It doesn't show up as much in the pic, but it was pink.|
And now after being kept in the fridge:
|Very pale pink|
It still has a brown bit at the bottom! The first recipe I used was this one:
The second one was part of a free email course I'm signed up to about celebrating the sabbats. You can sign up here (look on right of page: http://witchoflupinehollow.com/

Happy Belated Easter! Hope you had s good one if you celebrated. :) I got a Terry's chocolate orange egg like last year, a Sainbury's one and a few small choc eggs!
