Easter Cupcakes

Happy Easter!!

I hope everyone is having a great Easter weekend! Nothing like a little family gathering with food and festivities to make for a great holiday. For my food contribution this time around, I wanted toย  bring a sweet treat for everyone. It was my first time ever making cupcakes from scratch, and I have to say it was a little bit of trial and error at first, but I finally found the best recipe. If you love a moist vanilla cupcakeย  and buttercream icing, then this is for you. I thought I’d share this recipe I found and a cute topping idea keeping with the Easter theme. Nothing like a festive cupcake to make Easter a little sweeter ๐Ÿ™‚
