We love that Bundt cakes don't demand frosting -- just let a sweet lemon glaze run over the warm cake and you've got perfection.
This bunny is truly a snap to make because it uses boxed pound cake mix as the base, and kids can help decorate.
They're not exactly Easter basket candy, but they're definitely eye candy, and will make the grown-ups feel like they've had a treat too.
It's worth garnishing this cake with the orange slices - it gives it a pretty, almost flowery look that's appropriate for the holiday.
Carrots, bunnies.....a natural match. You probably already have a favorite recipe for this classic, but here's one just in case.
Don't worry, the "surprise" is a strawberry jam center. Cupcakes are not only charming but they're the perfect portion size for kids and adults alike.
Cheesecake is always a big hit, but the addition of pears and crystallized ginger give it a sophisticated feel for entertaining.
Nothing could be easier: Store-bought cookies literally get an Easter-parade make-over with store-bought icing.
This tart brings a tropical breeze to the table, thanks to a touch of coconut in the shortbread cookie crust.
These cookies are so elegant looking they old their own against even the fanciest cake or tart.
