Picnic Dessert Ideas -The Best Portable Treats

I love to have a picnic. I like the idea of having my little getaway, where we can enjoy some time together and just be in nature. It’s so relaxing! We’ve been doing this for years now, but I’ve always wanted to bring a dessert along for something sweet after all the sandwiches.

What desserts can stay at room temperature?

Lemon Bars, Cupcakes, and Whoopie Pies are excellent dessert choices if refrigeration is not an option.

How do you travel with dessert?

If you transport desserts, make sure that they are transported on a flat surface. Car seats can lean back or forward and aren’t entirely level. It’s more stable if you’re transporting them on the floorboard of your vehicle or in its trunk as well for easy access anywhere from time to time!

Do fruit desserts need to be refrigerated?

The Department of Agriculture is often in charge of food safety to keep consumers safe. The USDA has updated their guidelines for fruit pies made with sugar, as they are now recommending that these pastries be kept at room temperature no longer than 2 days after being baked or filled and sealed.
