So which did come first, the bunny or the egg?

Easter eggs are known to represent the celebration of new life, the Christian symbol of the resurrection. Yet they pre-date the life of Jesus, with original festival gift being made of wood or stone.

It was only in the last century that Easter egg gifts were sweet, made of chocolate, marzipan and sugar.

We've come to know them mostly as hollow chocolate eggs, made in two parts with an extra sweet treat inside.

As for the Easter bunny, well he started out as hare in the 17th century.

Folklore evolves, and the white rabbit's role became to deliver Easter eggs from his basket to children who had been good and obedient. 

At the Custom Cookie bakery we celebrate all the symbols of spring - eggs, bunnies, flowers, baby chicks and lambs.

Fresh baked to order and personalised with your own message, our Easter gifts range from cookie cards to a tin of Easter themed cookies to share with your loved ones over the holiday weekend.
