Easter eggs: most spectacular chocolate and cake ideas
Bakers have been sharing some weird and wonderful edible creations
For hundreds of years, Easter has been a time for friends, family and eccentric anthropomorphic rabbits who hide gifts all around your garden. With the UK having an extra two days off work, the long bank-holiday weekend also ensures over-indulgence - and for the vast majority, that means chocolate heaven.
In the run-up to the egg-stravaganza that is Easter Sunday, bakers have been sharing some great ideas for weird and wonderful edible creations to make at home.
From cheesecake-filled eggs to a whole cakeful of Mini Eggs, here's a selection of treats to try this weekend...
