Camp Bestival Planning

Mojitos for tomorrow night and in an ideal world all we would need is three things: Tequila, salt and limes, we wouldn't need anything else to get us through the weekend as no food would be required or remembered. However, we have children so that's not going to happen *sighs wistfully*.

Easter biscuits

A little like a Fruit Shortcake biscuit but made with orange zest to add more flavour. Always use currants as raisins are too big. Any shape cookie cutter will do but try not to make it too fancy as it will be difficult to cut out the dough with the currants in. Lovely served with a cup of tea during Easter weekend.

Bunny Buns or Carrot Cakes

These Cakes are really yummy and ever so slightly healthy, thanks to the addition of the carrot, the cream cheese icing is delicious too. They are really easy and quick to make too.

Easter Nest Cakes

Delicious chocolate cupcakes decorated to look like easter nests, great to make with the children for Easter

Hot Cross Scones

These are a scone version of Hot Cross Buns, very quick to make without needing to prove the dough, serve warm with butter

Simnel Mini Loaf Cakes with Edible Flowers

Simnel cakes are traditionally given on Mothering Sunday. If you don’t have a mini loaf tin you can use muffin cases. The icing uses freshly squeezed orange juice and gives a pale yellow icing, if Blood or Blush Oranges are in season these will give you a pale pink icing. Source the edible flowers carefully as you must make sure they are free from pesticides, Greens of Devon do a fabulous range of Edible Flowers

Simnel Cupcakes

Simnel cakes were traditionally made for Mothering Sunday when people in service were given the Sunday off to go home to their Mother Church.
