FT 13340 (Dante): Working out Easter may be a problem (6) TEASER Anagram of EASTER

Guardian 24523 (Araucaria): Oriental feast attended by new queen (9) EASTER + N + ER

Welcome here, Patrick. Both answers are correct.

Sets aside broken Easter eggs (10) : Segregates ?

Shuchi said...

@Hobbes: Right, an anagram.

Hints for the remaining two:

Azed 1863: Eater welcomes this caviar in post-Lenten communication? (7)

The definition is "this caviar". One of those rare clues in which the definition is not at the start/end.

Jumbo 763: Looking ridiculous after carelessly consuming chocolate at Easter? (4,3,2,4,4)

A d&cd clue. Think of chocolate in the context of Easter.
