It's that one time of year where you can gorge yourself on sweet, sweet, chocolate over 24 hours without any judgement.
Each year, Gold Coast cafes jump on board the trend and serve up creative cocoa goodness, often turning the traditional hot cross bun into a piece of art. This year is no exception.
Here is where to find the best (and most attractive) hot cross buns on the Coast:
Hot Cross Bun Dip
It's known as the Hot Cross Bun Dip. A toasted hot cross bun submerged into melted milk and dark chocolate and served with crunchy waffle balls, cookie crumbs, mini marshmallow and sprinkles.
Sourdough Hot Cross Buns
These Sourdough Hot Cross Buns are carefully wood-fired throughout the day. These bad boys sell out fast so it is encouraged that you order online to avoid disappointment.
Sourdough Hot Cross Bun
If you haven't made a trip down South to Burleigh Baker, then you're missing out. This Easter, their locally famous Sourdough Hot Cross Buns use only the best ingredients forming a light, fluffy and fully fermented bun that is easy of the digestive system. Voted the best bakery on the Gold Coast, it's little wonder their 36 hour lactofermented buns are flying out the door.

Hot Cross Bombs
Don't be fooled by the picture. These are not your average hot cross bomb. Open sesame, and this bun will ooze custard from its centre.
Thank us later....
