Easter Desserts!

Attic Gal Rachelle says:

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, and dessert is my favorite part of any meal, so you better believe that when it comes to our Easter dinner, I pay special attention to making dessert memorable! Here is what is on the dessert menu this Sunday:

Bird's Nest Cupcakes- Bake cupcakes and top with store-bought coconut frosting, then toasted coconut to make the nest, and three little Cadbury Mini eggs in the center of each. Couldn't be easier. Just spread coconut on a cookie sheet and put in the oven for a few minutes until it is nice and brown. Watch it, though, because it can burn very quickly.

Easter Pie - I found this one on Food Network - one of Giada's recipes (Love her!) It is like an rice pudding/egg custard in a flaky philo crust. A delicate flavor. So yummy, and so very pretty! Here is the link to that recipe.

Lamb Cake - I have had this lamb shaped cake pan for years, but was intimidated by it. Last year I did this, and I thought it turned out darling. I baked a devil's food cake, and piped on vanilla frosting in big loose swirls everywhere but the face and ears. I sprinkled green coconut "grass" all around her. The flowers are made from large marshmallows that I snipped in half with scissors and sprinkled with colored sugars which only sticks to the cut parts. The leaves were made the same way. The centers of the flowers were more of the chocolate eggs from the Nest Cupcakes. Very easy and such a pretty way to finish off our Easter meal!


  1. I will take 2 pies please. (In case you start a delivery service for all the yummy goodies you make.) I wish.....

  2. You forgot to mention how the kids finished off the lamb. Decapitation, cutting off limbs, etc. It was funny. Great food!
