Whether it's a quiet Saturday night at home or a big Easter Sunday dinner, one thing remains true: There is always room for dessert.

Below, check out five delicious treats you can make on Sunday to end your meal on a high note.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Lemon Poppy Trifle

Nothing says Springtime quite like this gluten-free Lemon Poppy Trifle by Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Fun tip: If you're worried about fitting everything into your trifle dish, try measuring the perimeter on a baking sheet before you spread your meringue. That way, you'll end up with a neat and tidy (not to mention gorgeous) finish.

Grant's No-Measure Yogurt Cake

If you're pressed for time (Easter is, you know, on Sunday), you can do no wrong by making Grant's No-Measure Yogurt Cake, which is also a great recipe for someone who is intimidating by the preciseness of baking. No matter what, your guests are sure to be satisfied by its delicious taste.

Yigit Pura's Berries and Cream Parfait

If you want to learn how to make dessert, who better to teach than a 'Top Chef' himself? This easy-to-assemble Parfait from Yigit Pura will have your guests raving with its overwhelmingly good berry taste. Sure, it's hard to dive into something that looks so pretty; but considering its taste is just as good, we doubt you'll have any regrets.

Buddy Valastro's Strawberry Milkshake Cake

Say it with us now: a Strawberry Milkshake Cake. If that doesn't make you happy, well, we don't know what to tell you.

Grant's Banana Split Ice Cream Cake

Would you believe us if we said you can make this dessert in 60 seconds or less? Well, it's true. Oh, and the recipe's pretty incredible, too.

Michael Schlow's Bananas Foster

This recipe is for the kid in everyone -- and great for the whole family, too. It's simple, easy to assemble and, most of all, completely mouth-wateringly good.
