At the end of a long winter, Easter feels like a great opportunity to celebrate nature coming back to life; embrace the longer days and warmer weather, do some Spring cleaning, fill the house with spring flowers, and create some seasonally-inspired recipes in the kitchen.
And as part of a recent collaboration with Wales Recycles on their BeMightyRecycle / Bydd Wych, Ailgylcha campaign, I wanted to share some tips to make this year’s festivities a more eco-friendly affair – by making sure your Easter recyclables go on to live a new life of their own, too.
If you’ve made it one of your 2021 resolutions to try and eat more seasonal, local produce – this is the blog series for you.

I had a can of Toast Ale’s new 6.2% chocolate stout in the fridge – a new brew they’ve made from surplus bread & chocolate in collaboration with Divine Chocolate, as part of their ‘Rise Up for the Planet’ campaign. It’s a freaking delicious stout, so I figured it would also taste amazing baked into a chocolate cake.
This is my adaptation of an Edd Kimber recipe which I found on the Sainsbury’s Magazine website; where I have also used some of Halen Mon’s epic Salted Caramel Spread to make a delicious, sweet cream cheese frosting.
