Easter is just around the corner. If you are getting ready for the holiday and plan on whipping up a feast – including cakes and treats – for family and friends, then here are a few ideas you can explore.

Try out different recipes

If you have only ever gone for the classics – chocolate, red velvet, mocha and the like – this is an excellent opportunity for you to expand your creative horizons a bit more. Explore a range of other flavors and textures you have yet to try, from Strawberry Lemonade layer cake and lemon-lime pound cake to lemon sherbet cupcakes with buttercream frosting, green tea honeysuckle cake and more, Southern Living recommends.

Get a new pan

If the Easter cake is a solemn tradition in your family, then you may need to invest in new Easter cake pans. If you love to bake, then you can never have enough of the right pans. And if yours are already showing signs of wear, then there’s no better time than now to get yourself new ones. That should give you more than enough time to test them out before you whip out your kitchen masterpieces in time for Easter.

Do a bunny cake

If you want something that compellingly screams of Easter fun, then why not go for a bunny cake? Make your life easier and find recipes that make use of the pans you already have handy in the kitchen. For instance, if you have round cake pans, then look for recipes that use those pans. That eliminates the need to have to calculate and adjust the recipe for a square pan.

Add fun decors

Aside from investing in new Easter cake pans, you may want to pick out a few other supplies as well. Think about the fun decorations you want to add to your cake and stock up on supplies, whether that’s food colouring, ganache, piping or more.
