Understatement: Holidays can be hectic. There’s planning and cleaning and cooking and baking and no matter how much you plan ahead, there’s just never enough time in the day.
That’s why we love tips and recipes that take the stress out of entertaining. And when we stumbled across this easy bunny cake tutorial, we knew we had to test it out. You can use any kind of cake you’d like to create this adorable dessert, but for our experiment we used store-bought mix (which we found to be surprisingly good)!
While it’s pretty obvious we’re infatuated with creamy, dense cheesecake, we’ll admit that as soon as Easter rolls around, we get pretty excited for Carrot Cake.
Made popular during World War II when sugar was scarce, naturally sweet Carrot Cake is often enjoyed in loaf, sheet cake, or cupcake form…but we like ours as a round cake best!
A Thanksgiving without desserts is not enjoyable. Who wants to sit through five hours of family time without something sweet to look forward to? …No one. Somewhat understandably, when you’ve got a turkey to baste, potatoes to mash, and like a million other things going on in the kitchen, perfecting a pie is usually put on the back burner. But we have a solution to all the dinner distress: our decadent baked goods!
There are certain things that people look forward to on the 4th of July. Things like parades, fireworks, and grilled meats have all become an integral part of the holiday celebration, but nothing – nothing – is as looked forward to on Independence Day as much as dessert. While any red, white, and blue confection is always a welcomed addition to a dessert table, if you’re hosting a bash this Thursday, make sure you have at least one of these favorites present:
Easy to make and guaranteed to please, simple trifles are really common at summer gatherings – specifically those on the 4th of July. That’s because they’re light, refreshing, and really easy to make patriotic with the addition of blue and red berries.
Stars and Stripes Cake
Seriously, few desserts are as non-fussy as a sheet cake. That said, they’re also really versatile, which is why they’re perfect for every holiday…even the 4th of July. All you really have to do to make one is take one flat cake, cover it with strategically placed strawberries, blueberries, and dollops of whipped cream, and you’ve got one sweet patriotic treat without a sweat.
