Anyone have a great-tasting and cute Easter dessert that transports easily? I’m not a baking pro – so the easier the better!

    I buy bakery boxes at a cooking supply store. They have cupcake inserts too. If you are in Brooklyn I know that Target has some good baked goods carriers.

    I make two varieties of the shot glass desserts. Chocolate and a strawberry cheesecake Place them in a cooler or a box for storage. if you want easy just buy a ready made cheesecake and a chocolate cake. These are easy to assemble and look fantastic. If you want cute, top with a marshmallow Peep!
    These are perfect for parties and buffets

    Strawberry Cheesecake Shot Glass Desserts
    Chocolate Shot glass dessert

    Serves as many as you wish to assemble

    Cheescake, store bought or home made
    strawberry pie filling ( canned or home made )
    Chocolate Cake( store bought or homemade )
    chocolate or fudge sauce: bottled or home made
    Whipped cream for garnish
    Hazelnut cookie sticks, storebought for garnish
    Disposable party flutes/glasses

    Layer in the glass:
    cheesecake shot glass dessert: strawberry topping, cheesecake, strawberry topping, cheesecake, topping or layered as desired

    For chocolate shot glass dessert: chocolate sauce, cake, sauce, cake ,sauce

    Just before serving pipe on or dollop on some sweetened whipped cream and garnish with a cookie stick
    if you want an easter decoration just top with a marshmallow peep!

    Note: I did use a whole 9 inch cheesecake and and entire chocolate bundt cake , cake was torn into pieces, and cheesecake was scooped out ,cut out from the pan and all ingredients were enough for about 24 desserts.
    Of course use less for less desserts.
    What’s nice is leftovers of cake and cheesecake may be frozen, nothing wasted!

      good idea! this might be hard to transport since i’ll be walking, subway-ing and train-ing – but if I ever have a party in my own home I’ll definitely keep this in mind!

    Cupcakes are always fun. You can take those delish cupcakes gently slice off the top when cooled with a serrated knife cut each in half, reserve. Frost the cupcake with white frosting and create a bunny face using tiny m&m’s or little sugar balls or 1/8″ flat sugar confetti for the eyes and nose and skinny licorice vines for the whiskers. place the cut “ears” in the frosting. You can use the canned decorating frosting too for the face, but I would still use the vines for whiskers.

    Cute Cake that looks like a Carrot! One 16 oz store bought pound cake. Trim two wedges off each side of one end and then attach the wedges to each other with frosting, crust sides together and attach end to end to the trimmed end of the cake to make a carrot shape. Frost whole cake with store bought vanilla icing tinted orange with food coloring. Then arrange orange jelly beans either in tight, neat rows or just haphazardly for fun design on top of frosting. Add candy green apple sour straws to the blunt end of the “carrot shaped cake” for greenery. Cute and easy! Should easily fit on cookie sheet for transport, or 9 X 13 pan and add apple straws when reaching destination! Credit to Food Network Magazine April 2011. We ate one already practicing! We will have another this weekend for the holiday! Happy Easter!

    These are billed as Passover treats, but would serve just as well for Easter. To make them more festive, dip cooled cookies in white or bittersweet chocolate http://goddessofbakedom.com/sb/sarabeth/2011/04/passover.html

      Thank you! I was thinking about doing French Macarons because they are so pretty but when I started looking at recipes I got scared off.
      These “Macaroons” not to be confused with “Macarons” look much simpler 🙂

    Yes! The Ina Garten packaged cupcake mixes are super easy to make and very delicious (they really taste like homemade–not Duncan Hines): http://www.kitchenkapers.com/barefoot-contessa-coconut-cupcake-with-icing.html
    I suggest making the coconut or red velvet versions and then just using pretty easter-colored sprinkles on top. They would look lovely on one of those tiered cupcake stands 🙂
