  • Debra Jacobus

    No May Day celebration would be complete without a dance around the maypole. This sweet version might just inspire your youngest guests to kick up their heels. A central layer cake anchors the gumdrop-topped pole -- a painted wooden dowel -- which is strung with ribbons and ringed by cupcake "dancers." Multicolor gum-candy flowers complete the festive spring tableau.

Rhubarb season is in full swing, and the deliciously bitter stalk is a must-have in many of my baked goods. But with its bold colors and slender structure, it’s also a great contender for a garnish. Save a stalk the next time you make rhubarb pie, and you can easily turn it into an unexpected and beautiful tuile-like garnish.
