A rich, simmering blend of my favorite things

Easter- Post-dinner, as in dessert


I don’t know why, but for some reason, Pink Lemonade Pound Cake sounded like the perfect thing for my Easter dessert. It sounded light and springy and the photo attached to this recipe was bright pink.

My final project looked nothing like the picture, but it certainly tasted good. I think I was far too shy with the food coloring to get the vibrant hues in the inspiration photo. However, this was a pretty darn attractive cake.

Looks good right?

My entertainment for the evening was an egg decorating station. Before all the guests arrived, one of my friends and I got everything set up so that people could have a drink and decorate an egg.

I couldn’t believe it! Some of my guests had never done this before.

But everyone humored me and the egg decorating was a fun time and a great success. It is amazing how much entertainment a group of adults can get out of two $1.50 boxes of Paas egg dye.

In addition to the fabulous egg entertainment and the cake, another friend made lemon bars. I just have to share a picture. I love lemon bars.

Aren't they beautiful?

I hope everyone had as lovely an Easter as I did. During the meal one of my friends said, “I’ve never thought of Easter as much of a holiday but now I understand. It’s like Thanksgiving in the spring!”

I hope your Thanksgiving in the spring was good and this dessert will be perfect for all your spring needs. It’s a easy recipe, though it has a number of steps. Enjoy!
