Easter is arguably the best time of year for colorful, coma-inducing desserts
. It's the only holiday when springtime hues set the scene, candies are shaped like eggs, and it's socially acceptable to eat marshmallows covered in sugar. Here are a dozen cute, decadent, and super fun Easter treats
for any skill level. Cue the Peeps, pastels, and bunnies.
