This luscious coconut cream cake could not be easier to make. To help with prep, it uses a box cake mix and is topped with Cool Whip and sweetened shredded coconut.

I love lemony desserts, and they feel just right at Easter time. My lemon bundt cake is a pretty cake filled with bright and tart lemon flavors and topped with a drizzle of lemon glaze for an extra punch of citrus flavor.

For a more simple Easter dessert, try these lemon cookies served with a side of vanilla ice cream or just a cup of tea. And they’re made with cake mix to make baking them up even easier!
11. Lemon Bars
Lemon bars are a classic dessert for good reason—buttery shortbread and zingy lemon just go together so well. It’s impossible to eat just one!
12. Lemon Meringue Pie
Another classic lemon dessert, lemon meringue pie is a wonderful way to end Easter dinner. Our from-scratch recipe tops a sweet-tart lemon filling with fluffy meringue and is big on citrus flavor.
