The taste of Easter

Every year since I was a kid my Mom would bake Paska (Easter bread). Now that she can no longer do it, the question is: "do we let that tradition die or do we continue it?" Realizing how much a part of Easter it is there was no choice but to continue it. I want to pass this one on to my kids making it a part of their memories, like it was a part of mine.
I didn't knead it by hand, like my Mom did. I let the bread machine take care of that. But I did make 12 pretty perfect mini loaves complete with icing and sprinkles. And I made the spread (gloms ?sp?). Anyone out there who knows Paska, but doesn't know the spread is completely missing out, as far as I'm concerned.
Happy Easter!

Those are really cute little paskas. I haven't made any paska for the last couple of years. How do you make the spread? I don't think I've ever heard of it before.
