Decorations for Easter Cakes

When it comes to Easter cakes there are so many colourful decorations and ways to decorate them once you have frosting on them. During this time of year, you will find all sorts of colourful candies like mini eggs, smarties, spring coloured sprinkles, and of course, you can make frosting to pipe onto the cakes in any design you like.

Decorating Easter eggs of any kind is always a fun way for the family to spend time together. Prepare a cake decorating station on the kitchen table, so that everyone has a spot to sit, chat, and enjoy the moments.

Since there will be extra cake after cutting out the egg shapes with an oval cookie cutter, you can use it to make little extra decorations for the cake tray. Perhaps roll them to look like grass or hay that would represent a nest. Maybe roll it into mini cake balls and add some frosting, they will look like tiny little eggs around the Egg Cakes.
