The kids are off school and the sun is shining what better way to spend your time off work and school then with some well deserved family time.
Over the years we have developed a few traditions of our own to do over Easter, so here is some inspiration for your family too.
The Hunt Is On
Without a doubt a tradition of ours and I’m sure thousands of families is a good ole fashion Easter Egg Hunt.
Nothing is more fun then seeing a child hunting high and low in the hopes of finding some chocolate treats. Our hunt included things for all the family from Cadbury, Divine Chocolate, Tesco and Crayola…. Who knew crayola did Easter Eggs.
These brands were perfect for our family as the Divine chocolate was rich and luxurious for us adults and the Cadurys creamy and fun for the kids.
With lots of spare time on our hands over the weekend we decided to make some lovely Easter treats for friends and family as we love to bake. It just so happened that we ended up hosting a cake stall full of Easter treats that we donated all proceeds to a local charity for children in need.
It wouldn’t have been possible to make the amount of cakes we did on the scale we did without the use of the fantastic Vonshef Stand Mixer. This amazing mixer made making 300 cupcakes seem effortless. It comes with everything you require to make amazing cakes, breads and doughs.
The mixer is super modern and ties in with my existing kitchen appliances and fits in seamlessly on my worktop due to the sleek design. Normally when making cupcakes my kitchen is dust filled room of icing sugar but thanks to the super hand splash guard my clean up time is now minimal. It has a wide range of speeds and my favourite feature is the stainless steel bowl. Now making Ganache doesn’t make a thousand pots and pans!
Keep an eye on the blog for my Creme Egg cupcakes recipe as well as many more. These were a hit with buyers and people love them.
Bounce Into Summer
With the weather fairing up beautifully we spent a lot of time outside but also took advantage of some inside activities that would normally be ram packed on rainy days.
Our local trampoline park offered 99p entry over the weekend which make a family few hours off really affordable for all families. Not to mention the exercise we got while there working off all the chocolate treats.
Its worth checking out indoor activities social pages over the summer to see what bargain deals they are offering to entice you in!
