What better way to spend the afternoon with the warm sunlight reflecting off the windows, and surrounded by pastels, feathers, eggs, nests and mouth watering chocolate sweets.
I found this old English china, not your usual fine, elegant designs and motifs. Plain, no designs, no gold trims, no embossing, just plain, hardly any markings.J EG. Meakin Glamour Celeste, Glamour Jade. But I couldn’t resist taking a few photos and making the cups and sauces, plates and bowls come alive with radiant pastel colours and charm. Perfect for an afternoon tea.
What better way then to celebrate Easter with all these soft pastel colours. Egg Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Fairy Floss pink and Glamour jade.
This is a recipe someone from adult to child in my family usually makes on a regular basis as a slice for the lunchboxes. But as I had bought some new silicone molds for Easter I though we might try it out and see how they turned out. What a surprise! Don’t they look great for Easter… First of all melt a packet 250g of Milk Chocolate Buttons, and paint with chocolate inside the mold, be sure to cover all the surface of the mold in chocolate. It’s not necessary to do two coats, I like the textured effect of seeing the rice bubbles.
Recipe: Rice Bubble Mars Bar Slice.
4 Mars Bars
4 cups Rice Bubbles
Melt butter and Mars Bars in double saucepan. In a large bowl add rice bubbles, pour melted mixture over rice bubbles and stir until well combined. Press rice bubble mixture into chocolate coated egg molds.Place in fridge until set. (If making slice, pour into a greased square baking tray and let the mixture set in fridge. Melt milk chocolate and drizzle over slice, cut into square portions)
Have a wonderful day,
