By Family Features

Spring into action and surprise guests at your Easter gathering with eggcellent desserts and treats. From pastel-colored cakes to homemade kid-friendly candies, Wilton has simple ideas to brighten any holiday table and help you make delicious sweet treats that will have your guests hunting for more."Holiday get-togethers are the perfect time to try new recipes, have fun in the kitchen and showcase your baking skills," says Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. "Get the kids involved with candy molds and Easter-themed cupcake kits, or add an element of surprise with a festive cake that reveals its pastel perfection when sliced."

Try these tips from Wilton to make your desserts hop off the table:

Celebrate Spring Fashion: Play up seasonal pastel colors by using an ombre technique. Fade through shades of rose, aqua or mint to add personality and chic spring flare to your cake.

Some 'Bunny' Special: Involve kids in the process; let them put their creativity to work by adding finishing touches like seasonal nonpareils, bunny with jelly bean icing decorations and sprinkles.

Lollipop, Lollipop: Impress guests by creating your own candy lollipops with Wilton's Easter Candy Making Kit Mega Pack. From Easter eggs to butterflies, there are fun and tasty shapes to tempt guests of all ages.

Basketful of Fun: Display your Easter candies and sweets in spring floral themed baking cups, and send guests home with leftovers in bunny treat bags and boxes for a festive touch.
