These crispy nest cakes are a classic, no-cook cake. They’re perfect for Easter and perfect for little children to make.
We make these Eggheads with cress hair every year because the kids think they’re so funny. If you get them ready four or five days beforehand they will have grown a full head of hair ready for the Easter weekend – which you can then snip off to enjoy with an egg sandwich.

Today, less is more. Little made these two Easter cards to give to her best friends at pre-school. They are a very simple design but I think they’re prefect Easter cards for a little one to make, almost by themselves. You can just draw the basic outline and then let them take charge and make a unique card. So easy, you could make them this weekend to send to grandparents in time for the Easter holiday.
