Perfect Spring Desserts

By  April 03, 2013

When I think of spring, I envision pastel colors, fruit, and light desserts.  Here are the top 5 desserts I have had my eye on to cheer in the new season.

1. Looking for a healthy and cute alternative to cake pops?  The Kitchn got creative with cookie cutters, melons, and cake pop sticks to assemble this edible floral arrangement.

2. This gorgeous stacked tower of pastel pastries by Carnets Parisiens is perfect for a baby shower or a morning brunch with friends!

3. Pretty in pink and perfect for mother’s day!  Martha Stewart has done it again with her Raspberry Mousse Pie!

4. Sweetapolita’s latest Vanilla Blackberry Mascarpone Cake for Two is decked out with a perfect color palette.  It’s no wonder this dessert has become such a sensation on Pinterest!

5. Raspberri Cupcakes’ Pink & White Layered Sprinkle Cake makes me think of the amazing spring birthday parties that are soon to be upon us.
