Easter, that holiday harbinger of spring, will be here before we know it. Ever since she was little, Athena’s tradition has been to celebrate the sweet occasion with a cake, so here we present a past hit recipe for your brunching enjoyment. Thanks to a medley of enticing ingredients (including mascarpone, ginger-sherry syrup, and carrots, of course) Athena’s carrot cake trifle is creamy, light, airy, subtly spicy, and mouthwateringly moist. Plus, it can be prepped in advance and assembled the morning-of, making it a perfect, stress-free pick for your festive get-together. On that note, make sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the post for Athena’s top Easter entertaining tips. Happy hoppy day!
