With the quieter days and warmer weather, the Easter holidays are a great time to get the kids involved in a bit of colourful baking. Not every recipe out there is suitable for small hands so we’ve put together some fun ideas that your little ones will be easily be able to help out with this Easter.
Our Easter egg moulds mean the kids can make their very own tasty eggs this Easter! Simply paint some tempered white chocolate into two moulds and pop them in the fridge. Once set, brush melted chocolate sparingly around the edge of one half and push them together to create a full egg. Once you’ve created as many eggs as needed (and laid down a protective table cover) the decorating fun can begin!
The edible Colour Splash Brush On Pens are perfect for kids to get as creative as they want! Simply twist the end of each pen for a very controlled application of colour and a great mess-free alternative to standard brushes and paints. And once they’ve finished their creations they can tuck into their little works of art!
Alternatively, you can have plenty of decorating fun with the kids by making a batch of our easy Easter biscuits together. Our Wilton Easter cookie cutters even have a comfort grip that’s perfect for little hands. Once your yummy eggs are baked, give the kids some Colour Splash Paints and cookie decorations to turn the biscuits into colourful Easter eggs.

The beauty of cupcakes is they don’t have to be perfectly neat to look great. Kids always love getting creative with the decorations so give them plenty of sprinkles and toppers to use. Why not hand out to others as a special homemade gift from the family? They’re sure to beat any store bought sweet treats!
Salt dough decorations are great fun for kids to decorate and hang around the house over Easter. They may not be edible but do make a fantastic family activity over the holidays and a great way to bake without sugar! Simply cut out fun shapes with our Easter cutters then bake, allow to cool and decorate for some adorable Easter decorations!
