Homemade carrot cake and rich cheesecake batters are swirled together to create the ultimate springtime dessert. A topping of sweetened sour cream offers a delightful tang, and the carrot ribbon garnish makes an elegant presentation.

Carrot Cake Swirl Cheesecake

I hope you don't mind me squeezing in just one more Easter dessert before the holiday. I have this cheesecake in my refrigerator right now, getting properly chilled for our dessert buffet on Sunday. Whenever I'm hosting a big holiday dinner, I appreciate dishes that can be made ahead of time. This is one of them, and it just happens to be delicious and so season appropriate!

These delightful Floral Bunny and Egg Sugar Cookies are pretty enough to decorate your Easter table, and tasty, too! Use them as place setting decor or package them for take-home favors.

Floral Bunny and Egg Sugar Cookies

It's hard to believe that Easter is this Sunday! I've been busy planning our dinner menu and collecting little spring accents to decorate my table. I like to make decorated sugar cookies for occasions like this, because they can serve double duty as table decor and a tasty treat for guests.
Lemon Syrup Cake and a Colorful Tablescape with The Home Depot

Hello friends!  Today I’d like to share a couple of things with you that I’m really excited about. The first and perhaps most obvious is this Lemon Syrup Layer Cake. It’s tart with layers of white cake soaked in lemon syrup. It’s a bounty of citrusy goodness and with tangy sweetness and no sourness to speak of. I have a feeling it’s going to be the centerpiece of our dessert buffet at Easter dinner.     

Speaking of centerpieces! The cake stand you see here, along with the beautiful dinnerware, flatware, and serveware are all from The Home Depot. Did you know that the nation’s #1 and most trusted home improvement retailer is now expanding their online shopping to include furniture, home accents, kitchenwares and tabletop? Well, now you do! I’m so happy to be working with them to bring you this news, and to show you a few of the items that I tried out personally.
Celebrate the sunny flavors of spring with this limoncello infused sponge cake. It’s filled with sweetened cream cheese frosting and a generous helping of crushed Sconza Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds

Limoncello Almond Cake Roll

Like most bakers, lemon is a staple in my kitchen year-round. It goes in all kinds of cakes and confections, but there's something wonderful about making a lemon dessert in spring. It feels like a celebration of sunshine and lightness after long winter months. I was inspired to make this cake after tasting Sconza Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds. If you haven't tried them yet, then you're in for a real treat! I think they taste like a slice of creamy lemon tart in a single bite.
Celebrate the season in a big way with a Reese's-inspired Giant Chocolate-Peanut Butter Egg! It's fun to make and even more fun to share.

Giant Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg

Here's something extra special - and extra large - for your Easter basket this year. This super-sized peanut butter egg is big enough to share with a dozen friends (or Easter dinner guests!) and it was inspired by those famous yellow-packaged peanut butter eggs that appear everywhere this time of year.
