Mushy dork fest begin: that’s 5 years, 158,109 comments, 850 recipes, 0 regrets, 2,394 grocery store trips, and 3,101 dishwasher cycles. Those last two are a calculated approximate, of course. Thank you for helping keep the engines running and recipe ideas flowing. You, and this entire enthusiastic baking community, are this blog’s foundation.

End mushy dork fest. But PS: I love you

So let’s eat cake! With candy! Even better: Easter candy. Honestly out of all the holidays in the year, Easter season is the BEST candy season. Easter bunny, you’ve got the right idea. Robin’s Eggs! Jelly Beans! Cadbury Creme Eggs! Reese’s Eggs! I wanted to put the pastel beauties of the season on display and while another piñata cake was tempting, I was inspired by Real Simple’s nest cake. It’s sort of the same, just A LOT more festive (and easier, too). And how beautiful as the finale to your Easter supper in a few weeks?
