How is Easter already this coming weekend? Time is FLYING. While it isn’t my favorite holiday, you know what I really love about Easter? Creative Easter desserts! Some people go all out (at least on the internet), so there is a ridiculous amount of gorgeous Easter inspired dessert recipes on the web. Like so so many. All you creative people out there just blow my mind, and they’ll blow your minds as well. Or at least make you really hungry.
This post is for fun. I don’t know many people who put this much effort into their holiday treats but if you do, bless you. You’re an awesome person. For the rest of us, this is eye candy. I’d be willing to try my hand at the speckled robin’s egg cake but the cheesecake eggs look a little daunting. But still delicious. #bakinggoals amiright?
The recipes below range from pretty simple to clear your whole Saturday to prep for Easter dessert. That said, I know a lot of folks have more traditional Easter desserts/treats they like to make or buy. Hey Cadbury Mini-egg fans, I’m looking at you. But do you make any special treats for Easter?
