Mother's Day Gift Ideas

It seem's we've barely had a breather from the double whammy that was Easter and Anzac Day, and already another event is upon us: Mother's Day! This year it falls on Sunday 11 May, and we've prepared a number of exciting new gifts for deserving mums. Check them out here.
If you're keen to design your own gift hamper for mum, you can always create your own hamper.  We have a variety of items that are perfect to send, such as candles, gourmet food products and luxurious pamper products. These items are also ideal to send along with a gorgeous fresh bouquet. 


  

Little Easter Chick Buns

We first saw a picture of these adorable little Easter Chick buns on Pinterest.
Detirmined to learn more, we eventually found the original image and recipe from a blog that's published in Bulgarian. 

Google Translate helped us get an idea of the recipe:

Basic dough:

  • 330g flour (sifted)
  • 50g sugar
  • 30-40 g soft butter (room temp)
  • 15-20 g fresh yeast
  • 125ml warm milk
  • pinch of salt

Glaze:

  • egg yolk with a few drops of milk

Eyeballs:

  •  nuts, pepper, raisins, cloves etc.

Knead the dough and leave covered for half an hour. Shape dough into individual 70g balls. Form into bird shapes as directed in the video. Place on a tray lined with baking paper and brush each roll with glaze. Bake at 200-220 ° C until golden.
