Here are the new Easter arrivals for 2015 available now in our Seasonal menu.
|Spring / Easter selection at the Littlest Sweet Shop|
It is hard to believe that Spring is here since we still get frosty mornings and some snow is still present in some (unlucky) areas in the UK! I still wear my thick winter coat when I'm out for walkies but the brightly coloured daffodils have blossomed everywhere in the village.

|Cherry cake loaf with chopped almonds|
Easter can be a big event here in England. I decided to make a Simnel cake which is traditionally served on Easter since Medieval times.
It is a small fruitcake with 2 layers of yellow marzipan. The top part has been lightly toasted. The 11 decorative marzipan balls represent the twelve apostles, minus Judas.
Easter is also the time when children (and probably some adults) paint eggs. We coloured some eggs into lovely pastel colours and painted them. They are placed in this handmade bread basket (literally a basket made out of bread).
|Bread basket with painted eggs|
|Butterfly, birch leaf, bird, tulip, rabbit, Easter egg, cross, flower, caterpillar|
|Ribbon/bow and strawberry jelly in milk strawberry flavour|
|Round mini cake with teal icing. Decorated with whipped cream and cherry on top|
|Heart shape mini cakes with pink icing. Decorated with chocolate curl and diamante|
Littlest Sweet Shop's first magazine appearance is in the Dolls' House Magazine (March Issue)!
That wraps it up for now. I have been sent a box of awesome Japanese sweets and treats to review so stick around for that mmmkay?
