I see from some comments that a few of you had misunderstood when the answers had to be submitted by; we did state when we posted the First Egg that entries had to be in Friday 13th April. Claire and I tried to allow for the time difference for players outside the U.K. and waited until the early hours of Sunday 15th GMT before we "closed" the hunt. You should have seen me on hands and knees at 1am trying to take a video of myself picking numbers out of a hat!!! and trying to only show my hands so you wouldn't all see me in my skimpy red satin "baby doll" pyjamas!!!!!
I know that Claire, Talj and myself will be compiling a Christmas Project of some kind we may even throw in an Halloween one just for fun......but if you are really disappointed not to have won a print....you can always pop to the Online Shop and purchase one. There is also the Auction up and running now. You may like to make a bid for one of the items or even donate something! The Team Smarties are still looking for sponsors; there are flyers and posters that can be printed out....and lots more ideas in the pipeline.....so keep a look out on our blogs for updates (and reminders....LOL)
Hello Bunny Hoppers! Let me start by thanking each of you for joining in the fun!
Winners pick your print here!

- THANK YOU ALL FOR PLAYING
to Ruth and Claire for organising the Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Jokes, Easter Craft and Easter Poems. They have really given this their all and we both appreciate their hardwork and enthusiasm! You girls are really 'SPEC' stars!
Secondly, we have really enjoyed finding all the clues in the Easter Egg Hunt and hope that all those who have participated have had just as much fun!!
And lastly, but by no means least, all the Easter 'Events' have managed to raise a FANTASTIC £123.00 for Rose's Tribute Fund!!! Without the hardwork of Ruth and Claire, and the generosity of all who've enjoyed the Easter fun, this wouldn't have been possible!
Many thanks to all of you,
Natalya Jagger and Andrew McGill

Sorry about the quality but happened to have my camera on when Leanne (with help from Manda and Lynn), solved the last clue. She was so excited!!!!
Thought the hunt has been easy so far? Well its about to get a little more difficult!
You will see on the meet contestant section of the sidebar there are 21 bloggers listed.
On each of the blogs mentioned there will be a clue left in the comments of the top post at the time, you will need to collect all 21 clues and come up with an answer.
It may be one word, or a whole sentence.
(Ecce has no comment function, so comedy got two clues.)
Update: If you have any problems with the last clues let me know! also if you are running a bit late doing the hunt, let me know and we might let you have a wee bit more time!
Then email me with all 20 answers of the The Easter Bunnies Egg hunt!
I hope you have enjoyed yourself and don't forget to vote for the winners of the Craft, Joke and Poetry sections!
For the cake
Butter for greasing tin
200 g cocoa solids
250 g caster sugar
2 tsp instant coffee, dissolved
150 g ground almonds
For the icing
150 g cocoa solids
50 g butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
Heat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, 350°F
Place the cake on a cooling wire over a tray and then pour the icing onto it. With the back of a metal spoon carefully work and spread the chocolate icing all over, taking care on the sides. Leave to set for at least an hour before transferring to your serving plate. Decorate with little Easter eggs if liked.
Grease a 23cm (9in) non-stick, spring-release cake tin. Carefully melt the chocolate on a very low heat
Separate the eggs, then whisk the yolks, mix and stir well.
Dissolve the coffee in 2 tablespoons of hot water.
Add the ground almonds, dissolved coffee and melted chocolate to the whisked egg yolks, mix and stir well.
Whisk the egg whites with an electric whisk until they stand in peaks. Add to the whisked egg yolks and fold in well until smooth and blended.
Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for 30 minutes, then cook with foil and cook for a further 20 minutes. To check if the cake is cooked insert a knife and it should come out clean. If not, return to the oven for 5 more minutes.
When cooked remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes, and then release from the cake-tin ring. Allow the cake to cool totally on the base, then carefully remove using a palette knife.
Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup carefully, on a very low heat, occasionally mixing until smooth and glossy.
