Talking Easter Cake! - April 15th 2017, 12:28 PM

Everyone knows I love sharing my latest baking escapades on here.

So, following tradition on special occasions, I made an Easter cake yesterday.
My whole family is Catholic so I want to respect my upbringing as well as making something super tasty, so I came up with the 'Both Sides of Easter' cake:




So one side is all pretty with eggs and flowers and is designed to be like a bird's nest. So cheerful and springtime and lovely.
The other side represents the crown of thorns and is deliberately very plain and serious. 'It is finished' are noted as being Jesus' last words in one of the gospels describing the Passion.

The cake itself is ginger, and the nest/thorns are orange Matchmakers. It's very simple but it's worked out pretty well.


Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right


We are the rainbow

Definitely like the poetic symbolism of the cake. It looks delicious but I wouldn't want to eat it.

It's a work of art.

Both the cake itself and its symbolism is beautiful. Wonderful job, Louise! I hope you continue making themed cakes and other desserts.


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I know you sent me pics of this, but I just wanted to say that it looks DELISH.

When can I expect mine in the mail?

That looks beautiful.


No one ever said that you had to face this on your own.
Just do your best, forget the rest, you're stronger than you know;
So let it all go.
Don't dwell on all the things that you can't change,
'Cause we are stronger, oh, we're so much stronger than we know. woe is me
