Looking for a fun Easter dessert to make with the family this year? Kraft has you covered! I love visiting their site for recipe ideas year round. Food art is so much fun, and these 7 dessert ideas are just too cute to pass up! We’ve made the bunny cake a couple of times, and think that the lamb cake (or the spring flower cupcakes??) will be our next fun food activity. Decisions, decisions!
Rainbow Layer Cake: You might look at those gorgeous layers and assume you’ll need whole bottles of food coloring…but you’d be wrong. They’re tinted with JELL-O Gelatin! You can choose whatever gelatin flavors you like, but pro tip: Unless you’re looking for a subtle yellow shade, avoid lemon flavor. Check out the full tutorial on how to make a rainbow cake for a no-fail showstopper.
Hawaiian Cookie Balls: Itty-bitty shortbread balls decorated like baby chicks? Yup, we went there! Mini candy-coated chocolate morsels make super-easy eyes (I find mine bagged in the candy aisle in a rainbow of neon colors). Then just pipe on orange and yellow decorating gel for beaks, wings and a little feathery “hair.” Here, chicky-chicky-chicky!
Easy Lamb Cake: Talk about a whole lotta cute for very little effort! Seriously, decorating this lamb cake goes quickly after you’ve frosted it with whipped topping and snipped the marshmallows in half—watch the video if you don’t believe me! This decorating tutorial works for any flavor of round layer cake, but tinting yellow cake batter with cherry-flavor gelatin mix makes it pretty and pink and perfect for Easter.
Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry “Carrots”: I don’t know about you, but I didn’t get enough of chocolate-dipped strawberries on Valentine’s Day. And since tinting melted white chocolate orange is as easy as adding a few drops of food coloring, go ahead and dress this treat in its Easter best. Like Mom always said, “Eat your carrots!”
PHILADELPHIA Easter Mini Cheesecakes: Everyone loves miniature desserts…and cheesecake. So these creamy handheld cheesecakes are a double delight! Raid your kids’ Easter baskets for speckled-shell malted milk eggs, then bed ’em down in a nest of toasted coconut atop each of these super-cute treats.
What fun Easter desserts will you make this year?
