Fun Themes Reflecting the Spirit of Easter

Easter is just around the corner and it’s about time you had decided what sweets and pastries you would bring to the celebration. Easter can be a great time to use your imagination and come up with fun and attractive designs that will make your pastries as gorgeous as delectable. You can have your baker create cookies into the shape of an Easter bunny, an egg, fun chicken, or ducks, etc. Cupcakes are another brilliant option that you must consider. There are several Brooklyn stores that can bake your customized Pasta di uova (Easter basket cookies) and pastries for special occasions.
 

Flavors that make a Difference
 
Great classic treat for Easter is Pizza di grano (Grain pie). Grain pie is made with fresh ricotta cheese and wholegrain. Your guests will be delighted once they taste that orange blossom flavor. Honey balls are also a great Easter sweet. Honey balls are cakelike balls fried and dipped in honey and are a holiday favorite.  
 
Easy to Bake Easter Bunny Cupcake
 
Easter-bunny cupcakes truly mark the spirit of Easter with their colorful and attractive appearance. You can get customized ones from your local bakery or you can create your own. Use your own cupcake recipe, and then use star tips and piping bags to include vanilla frosting. The white gumdrops must be shaped into triangle so as to depict the bunny’s ears. Jelly beans can be used for his eyes and nose, and frosting can be added around the whole piece so as to give it an attractive appearance.

Bring a Great Plate of Cookies to Passover
 
Passover is almost here and if you are running out of ideas on what to take, bring an assortment of cookies and make everyone happy. Who doesn’t like a platter of fresh baked cookies? Well if you are in Brooklyn, Circo’s Bakery makes a large variety of cookies that will best suit your Passover celebration. You can show up with any cookie style of your choosing whether it is for the Passover Seder, Yom Tov, or Chol Hamoed Pesach.
 
Customize Your Cookies in Brooklyn
 
Make your cookies personal by customizing them for your Passover event. During Passover, Jews refrain from eating yeast because according to the Torah, the Hebrews didn’t have time for their bread to rise in their hurried escape from Egypt. So, unleavened bread is traditionally made at the Passover commemorations today.
 
Since yeast isn’t eaten during Passover, customize your cookies by using matzo meal. Matzo meal will give your cookies the same fresh baked look and taste.  You can of course ask the baker to use special ingredients and customize special shapes for your Passover gathering. You can even ask the baker to create an assortment of cookies, so guests can have options between chocolate chip and coconut. Treat your family and yourself this Passover.
