While tasting these yummy rolls for breakfast, I decided to do a little research to find out the meaning of these cute little breads. I found this site , and this site which explains the history of Hot Cross Buns. Very interesting!
You can eat them cold as Princess like it or toast it and add a bit of butter as Little Man and I like it. Hubby hasn't tried them as they have raisins in them, not his favorite:)
This will now become a Easter tradition in our home while we live in the UK and maybe, just maybe I will learn to bake my own. Here is a recipe that I found that looks simple enough.
This week the kids have been putting on the finishing touches to their Easter tree. Originally it was to only hold styrofoam Easter eggs that the kids painted, but we kept finding more and more things to add to it.
Painting our eggs. We used paints and then added glitter glue to make them a little more decorative.
While at a charity shop I found a cute Easter craft book for about a quarter and brought it home. We used it to decorate our Easter tree by making garland and pin wheels and cutting out Easter cards to make it prettier. There is even a rabbit mask at the bottom:)
Our finished Easter tree. Very cheerful!! It is placed in the entry way of our home so visitors can spot it the moment they enter the home. The kids are very proud of their creation:)
