If your little one loves a sweet treat (and to lick the mixing spoon!) there is no better way to spend some quality time together than in the kitchen. The long Easter weekend offers the perfect opportunity to get making some ‘speggtacular’ sweets that are perfect for sharing. Of course, getting creative with food can get a little bit messy, but ACE’s varied product range offers a solution for every stain to help you keep your surfaces spotless and your clothes clean. We’ve pulled together our top Easter treats to ensure your yummiest Easter yet!
Perfect for the creative bakers, these pretty biscuits are a bound to be a show stopper at any Easter spread. Play with colours and patterns to make the biscuits as eye catching as you wish – try polka dots, stripes and zigzags on egg-shaped biscuits, and baby animals if you’re feeling adventurous. We love this BBC Good Food recipe that uses zingy apricot jam to craft a yolky egg design too. Your loved ones won’t be able to resist!
