We bring you some ideas to make this Easter sweet and jovial, and that do not require great pastry knowledge . Because this Easter more than any other we are going to want to prepare our Easter sweets at home.

Surely our little ones will appreciate receiving their mona, and although I encourage you to make a traditional mona to preserve traditions and enjoy a dough with a unique and exquisite flavor at home (you have the recipe for it here ), there are other alternatives to that, easy Easter solutions, the most colorful and joyful that do not entail, at all, great complications.

1. Bundt cake filled with surprises

The grace of the bundt molds lies in the fact that, without any additional effort on our part, we obtain a cake with a most beautiful and elegant appearance. They are a very good alternative to make a most beautiful monkey at home.

How to use the bundt molds to celebrate Easter?

  1. Make your bundt cake, you can use any traditional cake recipe or follow any recipe we have on the blog ( here you will see them).
  2. Let it cool, and decide if you want to give it a simple look, dusting it with icing sugar, or apply a coating (some simple icing*) or you can cover it with chocolate, or chocolate with almond or hazelnut pieces.
  3. Fill the inside of the bundt with candy or chocolate eggs or coins. The kids will love it! You can also choose to buy an egg or chocolate figure (these days you even have them in the nearest supermarkets) and place it in the center.
  4. You can also apply some floral decorations around it (they make Easter 100%, given that call to Palm Sunday), or use candied fruit or candied fruit for its preparation (in the photo you can see the chiffon cake with candied oranges, whose recipe you will see here ).

Remember! You will find several very interesting ingredients for your Easter cakes in our pantry section , such as delicious coconut oil, hazelnut oil, almond oil, and other cold-pressed oils that are the finest, pearl sugar, authentic vanilla extract from Madagascar...

You can find a lot of Nordic Ware bundt pans here , or maybe the one you like is the one in the photo, it's the Le Creuset bundt pan .

2. Use a crown mold

In the same way that we invited you to use a bundt-type mold to make your mona in a beautiful and easy way, you can use a crown mold (a low mold that offers a wide circular space in its center). You can use a crown mold exactly the same as mentioned above.

Some alternative ideas in this case for your presentation , could be:

  • Apply colored chocolate noodles or balls on top of the chocolate coating (Do you know how happy the little ones get with those cakes covered with a thousand and one colored noodles?)
  • You can apply icing in a zig-zag pattern across the entire length of the cake, it's really pretty too!
  • You can cover half a circle with one type of icing or topping, and the other half with something else. A good example of this would be to make half a cake covered in dark chocolate, and the other half in white chocolate (you can decorate one and the other with colored noodles, or one part with noodles and the other with colored balls).
  • With the help of a pastry bag, make little mounds of pastry cream along the entire perimeter, and on top of each one you can put a chocolate egg, a cherry or strawberry, or colored shavings.

In the store we have the De Buyer crown mold and the Le Creuset crown mold , both of which can be used for this purpose.

3. Decorated cupcakes

If there is any sweet that is common in all houses, it is muffins and cupcakes. It will be great fun for the little ones in the house to make and decorate these homemade sweets!

You can make them plain or you can fill them with cream, chocolate, lemon curd or jam . What will be the joy at the table is the decoration you give it, whether it is more sober (you can decorate them with nuts and honey) or with chocolates, coins, whipped cream (with fruit or jam on top of it), fruit, Smarties, shavings of chocolate... I invite you to look at the photo to get some ideas.

    Utensils to make your decorated cupcakes and cupcakes

    Here are some utensils that may suit you for your cupcakes and other creations:

    Some simple toppings for your cupcakes

    Orange glaze: melt 20g of butter together with 20ml of orange juice and, once it is hot, add 60g of icing sugar. Mix well until the sugar is completely dissolved

    Lemon icing : add the juice of 1 lemon over 120 g of icing sugar little by little, stirring continuously until it reaches the right consistency. If we see that it is not enough, we add a teaspoon of water.

    Chocolate Glaze: 200g of 70% confectioner's chocolate, 200g of 35% cream and 3 tablespoons of liquid glucose (or Golden Syrup). In a thick-bottomed saucepan, mix all the ingredients and bring to medium heat, stirring well until everything has dissolved and we obtain a dense cream. Remove from heat and reserve. (Beware that this icing hardens when warm; do not pour it too hot, as it will tend to spread, nor too thick, or it will not spread easily).

    I hope that all these ideas inspire you to make some of the most beautiful homemade cakes. Do not stop telling us in comments what other alternatives, easy and beautiful, we can do at home on these dates. It's so nice to share ideas!
