This Easter, there's no more dramatic pinnacle to your chocolate-inhaling escapades than destroying Australia's largest chocolate Easter egg — a three-metre-high, 300 kilogram chocolate egg which you can obliterate in in the 'community cracking' on Easter Sunday. Where's this monster lurking? In a storybook wonderland this Easter at beloved foodie wonderland The Grounds of Alexandria.

Gearing up for their huge Easter celebrations from March 25 to 27, The Grounds crew love a spot of Easter indulgence. From Good Friday to Easter Sunday they're transforming their Alexandria digs into a magical storybook land. There'll be a Golden Easter Egg Hunt, a Humpty Dumpty Wall built for selfies, real-life roaming children's storybook characters, a giant bunny made out of moss (named Cate Moss, of course), the beloved petting zoo, free Easter arts and crafts workshops, balloon twisting, live music from bands like Pets in the Park, and the giant, giant egg to pulverise.

They're also using Easter as an opportunity to show off their mad culinary talents — including the delicious, delicious aforementioned hot cross buns from The Grounds' head baker. Want to have a go at making them before Sunday? Here's the recipe.
