On Easter day, after Orthodox Easter church service, Russians traditionally celebrate with an Easter breakfast that includes foods that were forbidden during Lent. This feast includes meats, cheeses, and other favorite Russian dishes. Kulich is the Russian Easter bread, usually baked in a cylindrical pan and topped with icing and colored sprinkles. Paska is a cheese dessert, often made in the shape of a pyramid. Colored eggs are also present at the Easter breakfast table.
