Easter Parade

It just wouldn’t be Easter without an indulgent marzipan-topped simnel cake, and hot cross buns slathered in butter and jam. Our mouths are watering already…


A light fruit cake topped with a layer of marzipan and 11 marzipan balls, simnel cake is an Easter classic and makes a great centrepiece for your table. Golden marzipan (above) looks rich and sumptuous, or try white for a crisp, elegant finish. And why not give it a twist with flowers cut from ready-rolled fondant icing. The perfect treat to share with family this Easter


Whether you buy them or bake your own, hot cross buns are a must for your Easter celebration. And what better way to serve them than with St Dalfour Strawberry Jam. The all-natural 100% fruit jam contains no cane sugar and no artificial preservatives or colourings, making it an extra-tasty, fruity topping for your hot cross buns.
