Easter Bunny Cupcake Kit from Garnish & Gather 

These Easter bunny cupcakes are cutest thing ever. Order the kit from Atlanta meal kit company Garnish & Gather and you’ll receive everything you need to make eight adorable Easter bunny cupcakes. It’s a perfect project for children (or grandchildren) although you don’t need kids around to have fun making and eating these. You’ll mix and bake the carrot cake cupcakes, then stir together cream cheese and goat cheese (with a little sweetener) to make the frosting. Sprinkle the top with coconut flakes, then cut marshmallows in half and dust the cut sides with pale pink sparkling sugar. Tuck them on top of the cupcakes and the result is absolutely charming. We predict these are going to be pretty irresistible to both old and young. An Easter bunny treat that doesn’t require you to bite off his head? That’s a good thing.

$20 per kit to make 8 cupcakes. Available to order March 29 through April 16. Last day for delivery is April 18. garnishandgather.com/

An Easter Basket Full of Mini-Doughnuts

Anna Gatti of Marietta’s Doughnut Dollies has created some of the most inspired doughnut flavors we’ve tasted. At Valentine’s Day she offered a long stem rose box filled with doughnuts in flavors like Rosewater Almond and Vanilla Wildflower. But we think she’s outdone herself for Easter. Order her adorable Easter basket and you’ll find it filled with seven different flavors of doughnuts. Craving carrot cake? She’s got the doughnut for you. Coconut cake? There’ll be one of those as well. Along with Raspberry Marshmallow (with the most adorable tiny raspberry marshmallows covering the top), Blueberry, Key Lime (topped with candied lime slices and meringue kisses), Strawberry Rose (pretty pink strawberry glaze and dried rose petals) and Lemon Drop. The doughnuts don’t just make a beautiful spring display, they’re delicious, too. So you really can have your doughnuts and eat them, too.

$18 per basket with seven mini-doughnuts. Available for pick up April 19 - 21. Only available by preorder through email: preorder@mydoughnutdollies.com. Pick up at Doughnut Dollies, 724 Cherokee Street, Marietta. mydoughnutdollies.com/

At-Home Cannoli Kit from Varuni Napoli 

Cannoli - a fun Italian dessert of delicious fried shells with an orange- and lemon-scented ricotta filling - make a wonderful Easter treat. To keep the shells crisp, they need to be filled right before you enjoy them. Luca Varuni and the chefs at Varuni Napoli make it possible for you to have freshly filled cannoli for your Easter brunch or dinner in the easiest way possible. Purchase their at-home cannoli kit and you’ll receive a white pastry box filled with cannoli shells, a pastry bag already filled with their luscious filling and four containers of toppings - Nutella, mini chocolate chips, sprinkles and shelled pistachio kernels. The filling is so good you’ll be tempted to pipe it onto your fingers. But don’t. Save it for the shells and then let your guests customize with their favorite combination of the toppings. Your guests will enjoy decorating their own colorful Easter dessert and then eating the result.

$24 for the 6-cannoli kit, $40 for the 12-cannoli kit. Available at the Varuni Napoli Midtown location, 1540 Monroe Drive, Atlanta. Order at least 24 hours in advance by calling 404-709-2690. varuni.us/midtown/
