Next weekend will see children tucking into foil-wrapped chocolate left by the ever-generous Easter Bunny, while adults enjoy a rich simnel cake topped with a thick layer of nutty marzipan.

Our iwitness community has this week sent in symbolic images of Easter, see our gallery top right, with some focusing on the traditional and others sharing photos of home-made Easter treats.
