How to be the perfect guest this Easter
At any time of year, there are some fundamental etiquette rules for how to behave as a guest – especially if you’d like to be invited back.
It goes without saying that politeness, a willingness to follow house rules, not turning up late without a valid excuse, and being ‘social’ by putting away the mobile phone are among the pre-requisites for a happy get-together when someone else is kind enough to host.
One of the most important ways you can show your respect and appreciation for your host’s generosity is by taking a gift – either a nicely wrapped, thoughtful prezzie or a contribution to the culinary festivities with some celebratory fizz, a bottle of wine, tasty canapes, or a scrummy pudding will always go down a treat.
Bake an Easter traybake cake
Easter is a special time of celebration, togetherness, and eating with family and friends. A perfect occasion to bring joy to your host and fellow guests by preparing an Easter cake. You can get the kids involved in making it for their aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins – baking is a brilliant way to mix in some family bonding time and share the love.
And there are few cakes with bigger ‘wow’ factor than an Easter traybake cake. It’s the king of cakes. A sensational showcase for all things seasonal. Think fudge-frenzy, chocolate-collision, buttercream-bounty, all topped off with an Easter egg explosion.
