Springtime Desserts Beyond the Chocolate Bunny

Spring has officially begun, so usher in the warm weather by using the star flavors of the season in your baked goods and sweet treats. Whether you’re looking for desserts for some easy entertaining or a big finish to your holiday feast, take advantage of the post-winter warm weather when rainy days give way to luscious fruits and brightly colored flowers. For those of you suffering from chocolate-fatigue in the days leading up to Easter, turn to desserts that will highlight the bounty of spring.

If you’re on the hunt for sweets beyond cream-filled eggs and chocolate-molded bunnies, we’ve collected our favorite springtime desserts for inspiration:

Nothing says spring like this beautiful, vibrantly-colored cake (pictured above), fragrant with orange zest and drizzled with a tangy orange icing. Decorate with crystallized flowers for a celebratory centerpiece.


These bite-sized cupcake cuties get added moistness from creamy mascarpone cheese. Have the kids help you ice these with a sweet strawberry glaze.


Silky and voluptuous mousse parfaits bring together the bright flavors of spring with a tart curd and a spoonful of sweet macerated berries on top. For easy entertaining, make the lemon-lime curd in advance and simply fold in the egg whites and cream before serving.


Delicious yellow cupcakes with brilliantly-colored piped flowers remind us of a beautiful, newly blossomed spring bouquet.


These delicate little cake cookies get a sophisticated touch of lemon zest and a tangy lemon glaze.
