I have worked for over 25 years with brilliant home bakers and bloggers. I do not recall when I met Sammie but it was on Twitter via @sammiefeasting. Over the years, she has created fantastic recipes with our flour for her Hot Cross Buns, our bread mixes like our Garlic & Rosemary Focaccia for her Garlic Cheesy Bombs and our cake mixes for cupcakes, cookies and even waffles. She has created this beautiful bake for Easter knowing my most favourite of things are Mini Eggs! You can find more out about her from her blog http://feastingisfun.com/Deb the Bread
When working with rainbow melts or coloured icing always start with the darkest colour first and end with the white chocolate or lightest colour last.
