"I like big buns and I cannot lie..." OK, Sir Mixalot aside, bigger might not necessarily be better when it comes to hot cross buns, but with so many good ones wafting their spicy baked goodness around the place at the moment, you can decide for yourself.
In the lead up to Easter, it's always fun to get into the spirit of things and chow down on all things egg or bunny shaped, or carb it up on the bun front, so hop to it.
Sweet Infinity's Leanne Beck made her mark on this town for producing some pretty amazing baked goods, from pies to tarts, the works. Over the Easter period, the bakery usually churns our around 10,000 hot cross buns, all hand rolled, studded with sugar soaked currants, plenty of butter and a rum and honey glaze.

Hot cross..loaf? Yep. At Bourke Street Bakery, if you're not satisfied with just one, you can get your fix in the form of fruity sourdough. Of course, there are the regular individual buns too, but where's the fun in that?

This palace of baked goods tucked away in Mascot is worth the drive just to smell that amazing aroma wafting about the place. Even if Easter means nothing to you symbolically, the scent is probably enough to make you feel all warm and fuzzy regardless. They're super light and fluffy and made with a truckload of delicious ingredients..have one with a cracker coffee while you're there...and then load up the car for the ride home.
