Easy Easter Cupcakes

If you're hosting Easter brunch this year, or if you're headed to a brunch and need the perfect, no stress dessert, I have you covered. Easter is such a happy day of the year, and to celebrate a happy day, one needs a dozen easy Easter cupcakes. This weekend, Hunter and I spent a few hours enjoying the spring weather around Buckhead Atlanta. Conveniently located in the heart of Buckhead and just minutes from our house - literally, about three of them, this shopping district boasts just about everything your heart desires...including Georgetown Cupcake.

Georgetown Cupcake happens to be one of the most sought-after cupcake shops around, and Atlanta welcomed them here just a few short weeks ago. Georgetown Cupcake also happens to have coconut cupcakes every Saturday which is exactly the kind of cupcake you'll need for these easy Easter cupcakes. So here's what you do: 

Step 1: Pick up a dozen coconut cupcakes from your local bakery. Vanilla iced cupcakes will do fine, too, just sprinkle some coconut flakes on after the fact. 

Step 2: Pick up some Cadbury mini eggs. You'll only need 3 eggs per cupcake which means plenty for you to snack on later. 

Step 3: Add 3 Cadbury mini eggs to the top of each coconut cupcake. 

Step 4: Awe guests with your baking skillz. The joke's on them, but your secret is safe with me.

P.S. Don't forget that there is a correct way to eat a cupcake...

Take it all in

This week has been rough. From being sick to experiencing a few not-so-great days, I'm thankful for the weekend being upon us. I have few plans this weekend which is exactly how I want it to be: low key and reflective. One of my best friends suffered a devastating loss this week, and when I stumbled upon this card, I knew it was exactly the wise reminder that we all needed. Life is fleeting, y'all, and it makes me think twice about many things. Like not getting upset about this event or that collaboration that in the grand scheme, don't matter at all. Or like really taking a good, hard look at where your life is headed or how you're treating other people. Of course it's not lost on me that we tend to have these reflective moments in times of loss, but I like to think that it's all part of the grieving processes.

So this weekend, I hope to be thankful for life. To actually attend that workout class. To breathe deeply. To take in the beautiful weather. To splurge a little on dessert or good wine. To be thankful for friends, family, and health. To avoid comparison and jealousy. And to remember that really, it's about what I do have and not what I don't.

Have a great one, y'all! Take it all in and let me know below what your plans are for embracing life this weekend.
