20 Festive Easter Desserts | Taste As You Go

One of my friends posted a meme on Facebook that went something like this:

30 days hath September,
April, June, and November.
All the rest have 31,
except for February which has 28 and March which has 8,000.

Welcome to April, everyone.

Given the events of the past few weeks, at least here in the United States, I bet you didn't think we'd get here. And the scary thing is, the next few weeks are going to be harder... and more emotional as the number of confirmed COVID-19 coronavirus cases increases.

Please, be safe. Stay home if you can and try to make time to focus on your mental well-being if you're feeling overwhelmed.

I planned on doing a round-up of Easter-related recipes a few months ago. In recent days, though, I hesitated moving forward with it. I know a lot of people, including us, are trying to stretch the food they have on hand... and I didn't want to appear insensitive to that.

But writing this post is doing wonders for my mood, and it's helping lift my spirits. So, if you are planning on making a special dinner for the holiday and are looking for some festive ideas for your Easter dessert table... Keep reading!

PS. I tried to concentrate on ideas that weren't carrot cake, but if you're dying for a carrot cake recipe, here's our family's favorite. 😉
