End your Easter dinner with a stunning seasonal dessert. Create a wow-worthy sweet with simply gorgeous toppers like flowers, fresh fruit, and candy. Here are the most beautiful Easter desserts, including over-the-top layer cakes and luscious pies.

Bold Blooms

Transform a from-the-freezer pie into an Easter dinner dessert with a pop of bold blooms. We love the look of this lattice-top peach pie. For an ombre effect, place cut flowers in a row by color from darkest to lightest. Add fresh greenery or baby's breath to finish the look. Be sure to remove the flowers before slicing and serving.

Cotton Candy Nest

A far cry from the carnival, this sophisticated Easter cake is topped with a cloud of cotton candy and pretty speckled candy eggs. For a chic look, choose a solid-color cotton candy. We love pastel pink, purple, and blue.

Flower Petal Nest

A sweet Marie Callender's cream pie is the perfect base for this beautiful bird nest pie topper. Simply smooth the whipped cream flat and pile on delicate cut fresh flower petals. Simply slice edible flower petals, such as roses, pansies, and nasturtiums, and arrange them in a nest. Fill with colorful candy eggs.

Fresh Figs

This fig-topped cake is chic in its simplicity. Layers of moist zucchini cake are lightly frosted and finished with fruit fruit and greenery. Keep the minimalist look with a simple white cake stand.
