Think buttered icing is over-rated? Fed up with cupcakes? Sick of chocolate eggs? Then how about trying something a little different this Easter? Biscuiteers have a knack of producing wonderful decorated biscuits for every occasion.

And in the run up to Easter the nice folks at Biscuiteers have sent me a delightful selection of Faberge inspired Easter eggs to sample. The tin contains nine gorgeous decorated biscuits, sick thick with sugary icing, crystals and crunchy baubles – my favourite ones feature crown designs. The Easter Egg mini collection costs £30 but if you feel like splashing out there is also the Easter Family Tin for £38.50, containing bunnies, ducklings and lambs alongside the eggs – a sure fire hit for the kids.

Or, for those on a smaller budget there is also an Easter Bunny Card, with two bunnies for £9. In true Easter style the biscuits are chocolate flavoured. My one quibble would be that it’s a shame the tin is decorated with very pretty Easter illustrations that have been printed onto stickers rather than integrated into the tin so that it can easily be washed and re-used: something for the future?

For the monarchists out there there is also the Royal Wedding Tin, which contains crowns, Union Jacks, sparkly heels fit for a princess, a cake, a wedding dress (possibly not THE ONE, whatever that might be) and the world famous engagement ring. These biscuits come on a vanilla flavoured base as a tin of 16 for £40. Perfect if you feel like celebrating… for whatever reason.

Amelia’s Magazine | Easter Open Brief for Artists and Illustrators

Whipsnade Zoo Mara
I’ve got a new callout! Do you love all the imagery that is associated with Easter? Bunnies, Hares, Easter Eggs, Chocolate, Hot Cross Buns, Simnel Cake, Fluffy Chicks, New Beginnings, Warming Weather, Spring Flowers?

What does Easter mean to you? Is it a religious festival (Almost all the things we associate with Easter have a Pagan foundation, accommodated by Christianity), or merely a chance for a holiday with family?

Please send me your Easter images by Thursday 2nd April to post in time for the Easter weekend. (By the way the animal above is not a bunny, but I thought it would do for now! It is in fact a Patagonian Mara, a rodent most closely related to a guinea pig, but which looks part rabbit part deer. They roam freely at Whipsnade Zoo, a most engaging host of characters.)

Please create your artwork at 300dpi to fit an A3 page, but ONLY send a lo res version of your file labelled with your name and a title, sized 480 pixels wide 72 dpi to info[@] with the email title EASTER ART. Please write 100-150 words (no more please!) about your work to appear on the website, the more interesting the better. I’d love to know about your inspiration, process, and so on. Please also include your website, twitter and instagram links so we can connect with you.

The closing date for submissions is Thursday 2nd April. Please send me your artwork by 6pm GMT for inclusion in the post, to go live in time to share for Easter. All artwork will be showcased if it fulfils the above specifications.
