Baking for A Crowd: Memorial Day Desserts

Baking for a crowd

Keep the party appeased and pleased with our large-batch desserts, perfect for summertime entertaining. Greater in size, beauty, and flavor, these recipes are guaranteed to not only feed, but impress the family, friends, and neighbors attending your Memorial Day shindig. From our glossy Texas Sheet Cake to our chevron patterned Rhubarb Tart (exclusive from our May/June Issue!), these recipes have the generous portions and bulk servings to keep the hungry masses at bay.

  1. Rhubarb and Almond Tart 

If there were a tart that embodied springtime, this would be it. The addition of rhubarb to this delicate pastry’s nutty filling energizes a classic—and that chevron lattice isn’t too shabby either.

2. Texas Sheet Cake 

The reigning king of all sheet cakes, this easy Texas Sheet Cake is a chocoholic’s dream. A rich, fudgy cake cloaked in warm chocolate frosting with a sprinkling of pecans for added crunch? Yes, please!

3. Strawberry and Cream Cheese Pound Cake Loaves 

These cakes bring the ever-popular combination of strawberries and cream to each decadent slice. With homemade strawberry sauce swirled into each loaf, they’re just as beautiful as they are delicious.

4. Tres Leches Cake 

Indulge in this dreamy Tres Leches Cake, a sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk and topped with toasty meringue.
