The holidays are a hay day for desserts! From Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Year’s Eve, there are plenty of occasions to make big, extravagant desserts. Personally, I’m a fan of simple dessert lasagna or a nice bread pudding. However, these angelic desserts really take the cake (get it?) when it comes to holiday desserts.
So what makes a dessert angelic, you may ask? It’s simple—anything that’s light and fluffy and puts a smile on your face. I love to take recipes like these to big parties because they’re a great opportunity to bring something that you know everyone will love. And it’s not all angel food cake. There’s everything from marshmallow-filled cakes to fluffy ambrosia salad and (my personal favorite) meltaway cookies that will melt in your mouth. One bite and you’ll feel like you’re eating the dessert of angels!
