Who couldn’t use some sugar therapy this Easter? Any of these easy-to-make and easy-to-bake recipes will take center stage at your shindig, whether outside or inside, whether brunchtime or dinnertime.
Carrot and Zucchini Olive Oil Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
This Goodtaste original is truly a must-try that’s sure to become a family favorite. The super-tender loaf cake is chock-full of grated carrot, zucchini, olive oil, and warming spices and scented with fresh orange zest. We recommend topping it with our fluffy cream cheese frosting, but you can also simplify the recipe by just smearing slices with salted butter or cream cheese.
Aperol Spritz Cupcakes
Inspired by the Aperol Spritz, a classic Italian cocktail with a base of sparkling wine, these cupcakes dress up run-of-the-mill yellow cake mix with freshly grated orange zest and Aperol-tinted buttercream for a baked treat that’s to die for.
Easter Nest Cake
Sometimes it’s all about the presentation. Other times it’s all about the chocolate. This time, it’s both! This cake from BBC Good Food is easy to prepare, kid-friendly, and crazy delicious. The only drawback is you’ll be expected to bake this every Easter.
Speckled Egg Malted Milk Cake
This cute cake inspired by robins’ eggs is just the prettiest hue of blue. Decorate it with malted milk candy eggs or with fresh flowers from your yard.
Outlaw Carrot Cake with Brown Sugar Buttercream
A good carrot cake is a classic on the Easter dessert table, and we love how this one from Good Housekeeping gets slathered in a thick coat of flavorful brown sugar buttercream before serving.
Cadbury Mini Eggs Layer Cake
No Easter is complete without some Cadbury eggs, which we especially love pressed into the icing on this colorful Gunny Sack cake made from boxed cake mix. Plus, it’s an easy enough Easter activity that even the kids can participate.

The Easter Bunny isn’t the only one with a few surprises up their sleeve! Adding this Betty Crocker showstopper to your Easter picnic is easier than you think. Using your favorite box mix and icing, assorted Easter candies and some strategic cutting, watch your family’s faces when you slice into your edible piñata and it all tumbles out!
