Experts of the NewsNN portal have calculated how much the festive table will cost for the residents of Nizhny Novgorod on the bright holiday of Easter and whether it is profitable for citizens to cook treats at home.
The city statistics service specified that a dozen eggs can be bought in Nizhny Novgorod for 84.11 rubles. Most often they are painted with the help of onion skins, so city residents will need about 1 kg of onions which will cost them 31.6 rubles. You can also find various food colourings in stores, so then the expenses vary from 15 to 200 rubles. In turn, egg stickers range in price from 13 to 300 rubles. Thus, you will have to spend about 245-584 rubles to decorate ten eggs.
To prepare an Easter cake, residents of Nizhny Novgorod will need 531.83 rubles for the base of a cake. To cover it with glaze citizens will have to pay even more, so an average of 869.35 rubles will be an approximate cost of a homemade cake. Of course, many Orthodox Christians buy a ready-made Easter cake in a store. There, prices range from 150 to 1,000 rubles.
In general, if you add the average cost of homemade Easter cake and decorated eggs, it turns out that you will have to spend on them around 1,625 rubles. Ready-made cakes bought in a store will cost about 1,319 rubles. Thus, it turns out that homemade Easter treats are less profitable than those bought in stores.
