Dang looking back at my Easter dessert article posted around this time last year, who would have thought many of us would still be living life in quarantine? Unfortunately, this has clearly become the new normal for many, but that certainly doesn’t mean we can’t keep the spirit of different holidays alive! What better way to bring some Easter cheer than creating some fun pastel desserts?? I picked these desserts because they don’t only sound delicious to eat, but they become a fun activity just to make! Grab a socially distant friend, family member, or child, and dive right on into these fun little creations! Enjoy!
