EASY Easter Dessert Recipe #1
This is the first recipe of a series of three Easter Desserts I will be sharing. I’ve come up with 3 easy desserts you may want to try and share at your Easter Dinner Celebrations or maybe just to have some sweet treats around to remind you of the colors of spring and happiness.
Easter is just around the corner! It’s time for preparing and baking those special treats that brings us all together in the spirit of celebration. One of the best parts of baking is sharing in the fun with family and friends. Whether you’re sharing in the fun of baking or eating, desserts have a way of bringing a connection and joy in the process. This Easter Egg Cake Pop was made by my sister, my mom and I. As you can see, my daughter sat on the counter in a baby chair and watched us bake! It was a great bonding time with all the girls having fun in the kitchen. We were the dessert providers and made several different items I’ll be sharing with you in the next few posts before Easter.
The bright colors and mix and matches were fun to design and create. It was so easy and we all had a blast.
Cake Pops seem a little intimidating at first. I worked in a bakery during college so I’ve had my share of cake pop making. I wanted to share this with you in case you might have a desire to make some for Easter or any occasion. They are super easy, so don’t be intimidated at all! A friend of mine made them for a baby shower for everyone’s dessert instead of cake. They’re also a special treat for birthday parties, kids love them! What ever the occasion, they are sure to be a hit!
Start out with a white cake recipe. We have a fabulous white cake recipe that you will surely love! It’s super moist and very tasty. Click on the link: https://dessertsbyjuliette.com/2013/09/28/white-cake/. Do not frost the cake!
If you want to keep it super simple you can always open a store box mix and make white cake as well. Use whatever works best for you!
After you make the cake you will tear it apart. Yep, I said tear it apart. It will look a lot like the picture below:
You’ll then need to make our delicious Italian Buttercream Frosting Recipe, found here: Italian Buttercream Frosting
Melt your favorite colored chocolate wafers. I get mine from Michael’s Craft store or you can get them on-line through Amazon or WalMart. I like the Wilton brand and they have sooo many great colors now. You could make the most beautiful colored Easter Egg Cake Pops ever! Here’s a sample of the one’s from Amazon so you know which one’s I use.
After you dip the balls in the melted chocolate, you can put them on cake pop sticks or lollipop sticks to cool. You can get an inexpensive bag at WalMart, Michael’s, any craft store or Amazon.
If you like to add an additional color, make sure you let the first layer dry. Let your imagination take over and create and enjoy! They sure do brighten any table at Easter and they taste marvelous!
