Baker Paul Lowry puts the finishing touches to another batch of hot cross buns at Asda Antrim in Northern Ireland.

All the crosses on our hot cross buns are applied by hand by our in-store bakers. The buns are then sealed with a citrus glaze. Paul and his team will be producing 42,000 hot cross buns over the Easter period at the Antrim store alone!
