8 Desserts to Bake for Your Next Party

The most important part of a party is the food! Any event organizer or host knows that a gathering will never be complete without serving food to the guests. But it’s not always easy to come up with a menu of dishes to serve during an event.

Whatever selection of food you decide to serve, you can always win your guests over with a tasty dessert! And why don’t you make it even more special by baking them on your own? Here are some desserts you can make for your next party.


Cupcakes are great desserts for any occasion, and guests of any age group will surely enjoy them. So you can never go wrong with a bunch of cupcakes for dessert! Don’t be afraid to get creative with the flavors of your cupcakes. Buy a fruit puree, try out a mix of different flavors, or go with the conventional chocolate cupcake!


For parties or events with a long guest list, brownies are the ideal dessert. That’s because they’re incredibly easy to make and have straightforward instructions. You can make several batches of these; enough to serve a big group of people. Plus, they’re tasty and will go well with any main dish or beverage.


If you’re looking for a little bit more challenge — or a chance to show off your baking skills — why don’t you bake a cake? Cakes are a little bit more challenging to make compared to other desserts, but they’ll surely be an attention grabber at any party. You can choose any flavor or design you want, so it’s an opportunity to unleash your creativity and talent!

Non-baked cheesecake

If baking a cake sounds like too much work, or you don’t have enough time left until the party, you can opt for non-baked cheesecakes! These are much easier to make because you don’t have to worry about its structure. You can follow a simple recipe that won’t require eggs or baking, pop it in the fridge for six to eight hours, and you’re good to go. You can even serve it in a jar!


If you’re hosting a breakfast party, there’s no doubt that muffins should be on your dessert menu! They’ll surely impress your guests and show them what you can do in the kitchen. Bake different flavors — from blueberry to banana — so that everyone can make their choices.

Glazed donuts


Glazed donuts are the perfect dessert to satisfy anybody’s sweet tooth. It’s the perfect meal-ender that your guests won’t be able to resist. They’re perfect with a cup of coffee.


If you’re after an easy-to-make dessert that everyone will love, you can’t go wrong with cookies. It’s very rare for guests not to make a second trip to the dessert table to have another piece, so make sure you make enough for your guests and times two!


Pies are not exactly fit for any occasion. Because they’re hard to make, come in a single serving, and can only be sliced to a few pieces, they’re usually better for small gatherings. If you’re only hosting a little get together with a few of your closest friends, then an apple pie would look good on that dessert table.

What’s a party without good food and a sweet, satisfying dessert to top it all off? Channel the baker in you and try out these delicious treats for your next party, and you’ll surely have your guests wanting more. Who knows, it might be the beginning of your baking career too.
