Every other Friday, Yossy Arefi from Apt. 2B Baking Co. shares dessert projects that demand a little extra time and effort. Because your weekends should always be sweet.

Today: Picnic-ready desserts that are as portable as they are perfect.

Here is the start of a typical picnic basket checklist:

That something sweet, though, takes a bit more planning. Dessert isn't known for its portability. For a picnic, you can't just scoop some ice cream and call it a day. The sweet stuff needs to have legs, able to go from basket to park seamlessly. Whether it's rhubarb and apple hand pies or quaint frangipane tarlets, these 8 desserts from Yossy Arefi are picnic-ready and primed for transport:
