Easter cake quick and easy – the best tips

Which cake should I bake for Easter? We have a few criteria that we use to select whether a cake is suitable for Easter and today we have also selected suitable recipes for you. The pie

  • can be easily decorated for Easter
  • can be prepared the day before
  • doesn’t need a long preparation time

Decorate Easter cake quickly and easily

With the right decoration, every cake becomes an Easter cake. Here are a few super simple decoration ideas:

  • Bake bunny biscuits from simple shortcrust pastry or cookie cutter dough. Children can decorate these or simply nibble on them and you can also simply use them as Easter cake toppers.
  • Even easier: buy mini chocolate Easter bunnies and use them as decorations
  • Also available to buy: marzipan carrots or small colorful chocolate eggs
  • If it fits: Peel small real mini carrots with green and stick them into the cake

Which Easter cakes can be prepared the day before?

We prefer to just take the Easter cake out of the fridge at Easter and not make any more mess in the kitchen. Many of the recipes here taste even better after they’ve been cooked for a day.

Which types of fruit and fruits are good to use for Easter cakes?

Strawberries are delicious, but unfortunately the season starts too late for Easter. Here you will find recipes with seasonally appropriate ingredients or recipes that can easily be made with frozen or preserved food.
