There are few places more charming than Charleston South Carolina in the spring. Capture the city's Southern Belle charm in our take on its famed layered cake recipe. Accented by dried figs and crunchy pecans, this lady will be a showstopper on Easter. Recipe: Lady Baltimore Cake
A Mexican classic, this moist cake is drenched in three milks, resulting in a fabulous custard-like consistency. Although a perfect for choice for Cinco de Mayo, we suggest making this milky wonder immediately. Recipe: Tres Leches Cake
Sneak into summer early with a rustic cornmeal cake soaked in freshly macerated berries. Our basic recipe has the perfect amount of sweetness and really lets the season's berries shine. Recipe: Cornmeal Cake with Macerated Berries
Reluctant bakers, please don't be intimidated by this cheesecake's pretty presentation. Creating dancing ribbons of blackberry sauce in our Neufchatel cheesecake is easier than you think, and the end result - tastier than you can imagine. Recipe: Blackberry Swirl Cheesecake
You know what they say...Paris is beautiful in the spring. Capture its timeless essence in our decadent French tart boasting a creamy custard filling between its buttery crust. Recipe: Gateau Basque
Pretty flowers aren't only growing in the garden this season - they are sprouting from adorable chocolate cakes! Baked directly in terra-cotta pots, our charming recipe will be a hit with kids and adults alike. Recipe: Chocolate Flowerpot Cakes
When warm weather rolls around, lighten up your dessert menu with an airy angel food cake. We like giving ours a little bite with the addition of garden thyme and a splash of lemon juice. Recipe: Thyme Angel Food Cake
The arrival of the birds and the bees makes us have extra sweet feelings for honey. Add an extra drizzle of Pooh Bear's favorite along with a sprinkling of spring berries to bring our richly satisfying honey cheesecake to life. Recipe: Honey Cheesecake
Piled high with fresh strawberries and whipping cream, this chocolate cake caves in beautifully for a dessert filled with ooey-gooey goodness. Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberries and Cream
