Our Easter celebration usually has one show-stopper cake. It serves as a festive centerpiece for the table and delicious dessert to wrap up our Easter brunch. There are so many fun cakes to make and can be hard to know which to choose!

Whether you love to bake or save it for special occasions, you’ll find these cute Easter cake ideas totally inspiring.
Why I Chose These Cakes
Spring is the perfect time to make citrus or fruity cake. A cake with fruit in it is usually something that everyone finds enjoyable. Or try something full of chocolate flavor.
There is no wrong answer on this list!
I chose recipes for homemade Easter Cakes that suit all types of people. I consider myself a novice baker (I prefer Boxed Cake Mix Desserts) but I know some of you like to show off a little and have the skills to back it up.
So whether you’re looking for something super cute and creative or something simple that tastes amazing, this list has you covered.
From Easter-themed to recipes that feature the best spring flavors, you can easily choose a delicious dish to make for the family.
Whether you set up a waffle bar for the kids to eat from, serve brunch family-style at the table or create one specialty dish (like these Monte Cristo Roll-Ups) one or a few of these Easter cakes is the perfect way to finish your meal.
Don’t want to make a cake? Make a Panoramic Sugar Egg instead! They aren’t edible but they are a cute centerpiece idea for your brunch table.
Citrus Easter Cake Ideas
Is it even spring if you don't serve a citrus cake?! Growing up, my birthday cake of choice was always a tangy lemon cake, so these cakes sound AMAZING to me! Brighten up your Easter brunch with one of these easy recipes.
Fruity Easter Cake Ideas
Spring is my favorite season since so many different fruits are in season. Why not follow Mother Nature's lead and use the season's best flavors in your Easter Cakes!?
Candy Cakes to Make for Easter
I think these candy cakes would be a total hit with all the kids in your family. Whenever you pair two kinds of sweets it creates magic in my opinion. I have a wicked sweet tooth so I fully approve of adding seasonal candy to a cake!
Super Cute Cakes for Your Easter Parties
I'll be honest, I would never even attempt to make most of these cakes. You've got to know your limits and I just don't have the skill for shaped cakes with extra special decorating. But they are so cute! So I may suggest one of these to another family member who is MUCH better at things like this! It doesn't hurt to ask, right?!
