{Sweets}

March 5th. That was the last time I had sugar (with the exception of a few fruits). I am going to continue with this plan for as long as I can, the benefits of this change far outweigh the occasional craving for sugar, however, this weekend I will take a little hiatus and have a treat (or two).

I want to make something yummy and sweet for Easter. I know I'm already making the our traditional fudge cake with buttercream frosting and chocolate Cadbury bunny standing tall in the middle - the kids would be sad if they didn't have that - but I want something different.

I can't stop thinking about these two desserts and have pretty much decided to do one along with the bunny cake.

Which one would you do?Sheena's chocolate coconut cake sounds divine.

Simple, rich, delicious (I'm sure) and beautiful. She always has wonderful recipes on her blog.Next up...this beauty. I've made a Pavlova only once before and loved it. It's light and just says Spring to me. Maybe substitute this for the traditional strawberry shortcakes?

So which one? Both? That would be 3 cakes...I don't think so. What is something you traditionally have for Easter?

p.s.Another thing we always do is use the colored eggs for egg salad on a baguette. Yum!

Oh my goodness seriously no sugar?? How did you do it and still be bubbly? I don't think I could ever. that is so missing. :) I don't think we traditionally have anything in particular but just whatever I feel like having!

It would be a lot of work to do both. However, I have been on coconut milk kick and might have to do that one. I would say make the Palova that totally says spring time. Here is the dessert that I am making: http://absolutelee-absolutelee.blogspot.com/2011/04/easter-menu-planning.html#links
