Easter Cake – simnel cake is a light fruit cake with two layers of almond paste or marzipan , one in the middle and one on top,that is toasted, and eaten during the Easter period in the United Kingdom. Conventionally eleven, or occasionally twelve, marzipan balls are used to decorate the cake, with a story that the balls represent the twelve apostles, minus Judas or Jesus and the twelve apostles, minus Judas. This tradition developed late in the Victorian era, altering the mid Victorian tradition of decorating the cakes with preserved fruits and flowers. Order yours now.

Easter Pre Order: Interesting legends surround traditional Hot Cross Buns. One of our favorites suggests that friends who gift them to each other will remain friends for life. Sharing is excellent, but be sure to save a few for yourself. They are a soft, buttery roll flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg and full of candied orange and currants.

Ever have a Kinder Egg? They are all over the world, except in the United States. These dual layered white and dark chocolate eggs come with a secret prize hidden inside and have a cult following. But the US customs have banned them from crossing the border through importers and at airports. So, we made our own! And the Valrhona chocolate is so much better. $5 each or $30 for a gift carton of six. We can ship up to 4 cartons anywhere in the US for a flat rate of $15.
Pix Peeps and chocolate novelties are now available! House made marshmallow chicks made with the real deal Tahitian vanilla beans. $3.50 each. Don’t miss our chocolate rabbits, eggs and Eiffel towers. You should get your bunnies at a chocolate shop, not a grocery store…non?
