There is a strong demand for Easter cakes in Ukraine ahead of Easter 2024, but prices for these products vary considerably. In supermarkets, the cost of half-kilogram Easter cakes usually ranges from 99 to 170 hryvnias, depending on the brand and composition of the product, while in bakeries, prices can reach 1195 hryvnias per piece, especially in the case of luxury products or cakes with exclusive fillings.

OBOZ.UA found out what prices manufacturers are offering this year. And also how the cost of Easter cake in supermarkets and bakeries differs.
