Easter Cupcakes!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter tomorrow! Matt and I headed to my parent's last night. We stopped at the store on the way and got stuff to make our Easter cupcakes and some Easter lilies for my momma:) Our cupcakes turned out even cuter than I imagined they would! Aren't they fun?! We used shredded coconut with green food coloring for the grass and yummy Cadbury egg candies for the Easter eggs. The cupcakes themselves are carrot cake:) They are not only adorable but delicious!! We used Matt's Aunt Norma's carrot cake and cream cheese frosting recipes and I must say they are the moistest, most delicious little bites of yumminess ever! You should definitely try this recipe and try this easy decorating style! I like to think they are a show-stopper;)
Have a wonderful Resurrection Day everyone!
