Who needs to go on an Easter egg hunt in Dubai when the eggs will be coming straight to you? To celebrate Easter, boutique dessert shop Looshi’s has teamed up with Deliveroo to offer limited-edition cake POPS in the shape of an egg. Fitting. Until Sunday April 12, the POPS come in a shape of an Easter egg, and will be decorated in colourful icing and edible paint.
British giant M&S is getting ready for Easter with the launch of cheese Easter eggs in two Dubai stores – for those who prefer cheese to chocolate eggs. The packs, which contain six “eggs” in an actual egg carton, will set you back Dhs99 each, with each egg containing a cheddar egg “white” and a red Leicester “yolk”. Because Easter isn’t just for the chocolate-lovers out there.
