  3. Hi Jennifer

    Looks fabulous, love the Collections idea, will be checking out the Quick and Easy one, right up my alley when it comes to baking, trying to keep things simple. Thanks again.

  4. Oh Jenny, not only easter. Anytime, anywhere is a good time for all these beauticious sweet cakes! Praline cream pie, I am eyeing you.

  5. You are making it REALLY hard to choose! I want them all!!

  6. Looking back over my printed menus for the last several years it seems I usually make something lemony or with coconut for Easter.  This year I am making Tres leches Cake since it’s been quite awhile since my family has enjoyed it.  Would love to make all of yours and just eat dessert, lol.

  7. I wanted to make my coconut cake, but it is too much work. I totally forgot about an Italian tart until I saw this post. Thanks!

  8. Thank you for putting together the collection! They look fabulous! Great choices for home bakers!
