Easter Cake Recipes

Whether your style run to the classic—like a fluffy white coconut layer cake—or the whimsical—like a bird's nest-shaped Bundt—there's no better finale to your holiday meal than a beautiful Easter cake. In need of some inspiration? We've got dozens of ideas for every taste and skill level. Like to keep things simple? You can't go wrong with a traditional pound cake or a creamy, vanilla-scented cheesecake topped with jammy fruit, rich chocolate sauce, or fresh whipped cream. (They're classics for a reason!) Kids always love mini desserts, and we've got plenty of cute Easter cupcake decorating ideas, from marshmallow bunny ears to jelly bean daisies. Citrus cakes offer a welcome bit of sunshine in springtime, and our favorites—like lemon buttermilk cake and olive oil cake with vanilla oranges—look sophisticated but come together in a snap. Or maybe you really want to pull out all the stops? Look no further: our Easter surprise cake (think part dessert, part pinata!) is guaranteed to leave your guests speechless.
