This collection of Spring Desserts includes all types of recipes—cakes, cookies, pies, cheesecakes, and more—featuring all the light and bright flavors of spring time!
Lighter and brighter desserts
When I think “spring desserts” my mind almost immediately goes to fresh fruit!
Berry and citrus flavors are especially appealing when the days start to warm up. Don’t you agree?
Flavors of Spring
To me, nothing is more Spring-y than a lemon! Some of my favorite spring desserts are bright and lemony like Lemon Blossoms or lemon cheesecake.
Springtime produce, specifically fruits, can be made into all sorts of desserts.
- Pies and Tarts are perfect for fruits.
- Cakes can be flavored and decorated with the colors and produce of spring.
- Shortbread crust is used as a base for many fruity desserts.
- Cheesecake is another classic base and can be topped with fresh berries and sweet syrups.
Some of my other favorite spring produce to use in desserts include:
Making festive springtime desserts
- Flowers make a pretty decoration for spring desserts. You can use frosting flowers, edible flowers or even regular flowers that can be removed before serving.
- Baby animals are often used to decorate springtime dessert; particularly bunnies, chicks and lambs.
- Incorporate favorite holidays like Easter and Mother’s Day into your spring desserts, or bring the rainbow of color for St. Patrick’s Day or any day!
Pretty much any dessert can be transformed into one fit for spring by the colors you use.
For example: Mix up Vanilla Buttercream Frosting in any pastel color, or use this pretty pink Berry Buttercream Frosting, and add it to the top of your favorite chocolate brownie or cupcake. Instantly, it’s perfect to serve as a spring dessert.
Pastel Colored Sprinkles and Pastel M&M’s also add a Spring look.
