Easter calls for a celebration of new life, knowing that we have a lot to look forward to! Celebrate Jesus Ressurection with some amazing Easter desserts that are just adorable.


Easter is a significant day for Christians who celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a day to spend with family and remember all that one can be thankful for.

And while we are giving thanks, we also come out of the Lenten fasting with a celebratory family meal. In our East Indian culture, we also give Easter eggs made from marzipan as gifts to friends and family. And of course, make more than enough for ourselves too!

In many cultures and countries, making bunny-shaped cookies or eggs shaped chocolates is a tradition too. If you’re tired of making your regular recipes for Easter, try one of these. From cookies to cakes and marzipan eggs, making these Easter treats will be a good bit of family fun.
