Explore menu items that evoke the beautiful sights of the season, such as this gorgeous rhubarb and rose cake from Canelle et Vanille.

Give cupcakes and cookies and rest and instead try artisanal donuts, with fun toppings like pistachios or raw cacao. Display them on white marble for optimal swoon-worthiness.
