Mention the words “Easter” and “cakes” and most people think of Simnel cake. If you want to keep up the custom, Betty’s is well spiced and beautifully finished with soft sweet marzipan. For something less conventional, Hummingbird Bakery’s Easter Red Velvet cake is ridiculously good. After something cheaper? Marks & Spencer’s Chocolate Nest Cake is both enchanting to look at and scrumptious to eat.
