Coconut and Espresso Cream Layer Cake
This is your Easter dessert show-stopper: 6 layers of coconut cake are slathered with heady espresso and sweetened condensed milk whipped cream. Each bite is soft, rich, and luscious.
Easter Egg Cake
This beautiful and easy centerpiece cake can be made with your favorite cake recipe (or in a pinch, boxed cake mix).
Chocolate Marshmallow Peeps
DIY chocolate Peeps are fun to make and make an undisputedly awesome addition to any Easter basket.
Carrot Cake Truffles
These truffles are comprised of dense carrot cake mixed with cream cheese to form a decadent filling. A coating of high-quality white chocolate adds a sweet finish, making for a hoppy, er, happy eating experience.
Feeding a large group is easy with this classic carrot cake, which is moist of crumb and topped with a thick, tangy cream cheese frosting.
Homemade Easter Corn
Easter Corn is Candy Corn all dressed up for spring. And like Candy Corn, it tastes better when made at home.
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
For those parts of the country that have seen the first spring produce come into the markets, this is the dish to make. What can we say? Sweet, sun-kissed strawberries pair perfectly with tart, crisp rhubarb.
This loaf might be too cute to take apart.
Sour Cherry and Lavender Sorbet
Light and refreshingly tart, this is a good palate cleanser after a heavy meal. We like to pair it with simple shortbread cookies.
Gluten-free Carrot Cake
If you or one of your guests has a gluten allergy you can still serve the most classic of Easter desserts.
Chocolate Coconut Nests with Jelly Bean Eggs
These nests are a homemade version of the Russell Stover candy, and a fun Easter treat.
Greek Easter Cookies
In Greece, these cookies are traditionally made in large batches around Easter to be shared with guests. A little dry and not too sweet, they have a hint of orange and pair perfectly with a cup of strong coffee and maybe some spoon sweets.
Another cake that looks as good as it tastes, Hummingbird Cake is chock full o' goodies like bananas, pineapple, and pecans. The best part? It's not fussy to prepare.
White Chocolate Bread Pudding
This buttery, rich white chocolate bread pudding is doused in a luscious white chocolate sauce.
Honey Lavender Mille Crêpes Cake
This cake is made from 20 layers of thin, buttery crepes. Honey and vanilla bean pastry cream is a delicate, sweet touch.
Melopita (Greek Honey Cake)
This cake is light and fluffy like a cheesecake, sweetened with honey and spiced with cinnamon. Make it even more special for Easter by topping it with any ripe berries you can find.
White Chocolate Dipped Lemon-Almond Biscotti
This is an American twist on the Italian cookie. Its flavor is tartly lemony, which offsets the creamy white chocolate coating.
