Mona de Pasqua - Catalonia's creative traditional Easter cake featuring decorative figurines

The ‘Mona de Pasqua,’ the traditional Easter cake, is a sponge cake topped with a chocolate figurine, very commonly given in Catalonia during the Catholic festivity. Bakeries across the territory plan their designs long in advance to come up with the most appealing designs and styles. 

The cakes are made with chocolate, almonds, flour, and eggs, but some bakers differentiate between the sponge cake and the chocolate structures that they design well in advance.
