It used to be that a dessert just had to taste good in order to make it on our most-wanted list (that is, the most want to eat list). Well, our expectations have be raised thanks to the flood of absolutely drop dead gorgeous -- and delicious -- cakes, cupcakes, cookies and more that bakers have been whipping up. We live in a world of beautiful desserts, and we have found the cream of the crop in pastel desserts.

There's no better way to celebrate spring than with one of these pink, green, blue or lavender sweets. They're lovely. They're festive. And they're all the proof we need that the world is a beautiful place.
