Easter Weekend and Annie's Carrot Cupcakes

Easter weekend was simple and lovely.  It was relaxed, filled with sunshine, children's Bible reading, a touching church service, dying eggs, happy little ones, sweet treats and
a great dinner with the family.  I love a good ham and potatoes holiday meal. 
Want to know something?  I seriously looked forward to my Easter cupcake.  As much as I pin cupcakes on my Pinterest cupcake board, making them is actually a rarity. 
So these were a treat, and I found inspiration for these sweet nest cupcakes on Pinterest, too!
Carrot cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting,
milk chocolate shavings and Cadbury eggs,
baked in Wilton grass liners. 
Loved the sweet liner touch and the jewel-tone eggs!

I made an executive decision this year, and opted for a different carrot cake recipe than normal.
This recipe has a couple more spices than my other recipe and I love that. 
Thanks to Annie's Eats, this Carrot Cupcake Recipe is a keeper!

 I could really eat another carrot cupcake right about now.
Moving along...

 They are the funniest pair, ever.

Simple, silly, pleasures, made a fantastic weekend.
I hope yours was, too!

Darling photos!

Did your mom tell you about the carrot cake she made for Easter? It was HUGE! I'm not actually sure how many layers she stacked up. Amazing, but so very delicious too.

How cute are your cupcakes?!!

It all looks lovely! I laughed at the blue dyed fingers... and swooned at the thought of carrot cake, and now, I'm hungry!
Blessings on your day!

The only cake my husband likes is carrot cake...& I have never made it for him! Aren't I terrible! Maybe for his birthday this year...he IS turning 40! (weird!) But I love the family pics. Easter just makes me smile!

Those are so cute, Cass! I didn't know they made grass cupcake liners!?! Very fun. Thanks for sharing. And cute pics of the kids too :)

Brittany--I didn't hear about the enormous cake! Wish I could see a picture! Mom always makes delicious baked treats. :)

Ambs--I found the liners at Safeway on an Easter end panel. I was happy to find what they had left! Anywhere that carries Wilton may have seasonal cupcake liners. :)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
