Excuse the pun, but with Easter everywhere I look offline it really only seems fair to bring it online and share some of the best Easter-themed bakes I’ve found around the internet this year. Now, it isn’t all about the Cadbury’s Crème Egg – although they do feature – because I absolutely loathe the bloody things.

When I first started putting this post together, I knew I had to share a cupcake that I had actually seen years and years ago on one of my favourite blogs, milkbubbletea. Becky created this Crème Egg Stuffed Chocolate Cupcake and it just screams Easter – so her bake is kicking us off. Becky also has honourable mentions with her Easter themed Miffy Cupcakes & her Easter Chick Chocolate Stuffed Cupcakes.

Now it certainly isn’t all about Crème Eggs during Easter for me, but give me a packet of hot cross buns and I’m a happy woman. Give them a chocolate orange spin like Sarah at TamingTwins has done with her Chocolate Orange Hot Cross Buns and I’m in my own personal heaven!
|Chocolate & Orange Mini Egg Surprise CheeseCake by Ciara at MyFussyEater|
A cheesecake! Another offering with chocolate and orange, with a hidden surprise to boot. I definitely like a good cheesecake, so when this Chocolate & Orange Mini Egg Surprise Cheesecake by Ciara at MyFussyEater popped onto my radar I knew it had to make the list.
|Bird’s Nest Coconut Macaroons by Stacey at BakeEatRepeat|
Tradition here in England dictates that you use cornflakes or Shredded Wheat to make your Easter nests – Stacey at BakeEatRepeat defied convention and created these Bird’s Nest Coconut Macaroons.
|Easter Chocolate Nests by Zoella|
Speaking of using Shredded Wheat – Zoella created a post and video highlighting her six favourite Easter treats and these Easter Chocolate Nests were nestled in there begging me to feature them. These used to be a primary school treat at Easter time, although the thought of thirty under-twelve children running around with chocolate covered fingers strikes a few notes of terror deep within my soul.
|Rabbit Cookies by Sandeea at larecetadelafelicidad|
The Spanish blogger Sandeea behind larecetadelafelicidad has created these adorable Rabbit Cookies! There are many, many variations on Pinterest of similar cookies but I love the simplicity Sandeea has adopted for hers. Also, they have a chocolate filling which isn’t shown on the photograph – fantastic!
|Chocolate Mini Egg Cake by Jennie at ScarletScorchDroppers|
I do enjoy a Cadbury’s Mini Egg, so coming across this Chocolate Mini Egg Cake by Jennie at ScarletScorchDroppers was a revelation – it’s covered entirely in them! I also advocate the sneaky use of Cadbury’s Fingers as a wall – if only it was a viable architectural option when it comes to other things in life..
|Bunny Mini Cakes by Laurie & Nancy at TwoSistersCrafting|
Laurie and Nancy over at TwoSistersCrafting have set the standard really, really high with their delightful Mini Bunny Cakes. Give me a cake, it’s a winner. Give me rainbow cakes topped with bunny ears and finished with a little bunny tail? I have no words!
|Chocolate Bark How-To by Hobbycraft|
I did start this list with the intention of featuring bloggers and not brands, but Hobbycraft have created a stunning Chocolate Bark How-To guide and I feel obliged to share it. Very useful if you’ve already made Zoella’s Chocolate Easter Nests with the children and you’d like something else child-friendly!
