Confetti and Cupcakes
Did you have a great weekend? Have you woken up with a lingering Easter candy tummy ache? Do you still have confetti everywhere from the Cascarones? Yea? Me too. I think I might have an Easter sugar hangover… I’m not proud. Here’s a look at what Easter looks like when you combine a cupcake contest with a steady stream of champagne, a dog named Bunny and a confetti filled egg massacre.
Combine cupcakes and competition. Call it a Bake Off. What could be better!?
These are Whitney’s Derby Pie inspired cupcakes, with pie crust and amazingly rich buttercream frosting. So sweet. So good! The winner of the contest was Susie, with her Blueberry Cupcakes with mint, lemon and Brown Sugar Buttercream.
Meet Bunny the dog. She’s begging. Wouldn’t you if you were a dog at a cupcake party!? Behind Bunny, Dean and possibly the cutest yellow shoes ever.
And then there’s Cascarones. Cascarones are hollowed out, beautifully dyed eggs that are filled with confetti. They’re like the most beautiful Easter weapon ever. You find these eggs just like any old Easter egg hunt, but when you find then, you smash them on your friends. Dean and Whitney seem rather polite about the whole situation.
Molly is more of a smash and run girl, leaving a trail of confetti in her wake.
Hunter tries to release confetti from her hair. Jun has just about the best smile ever, and Molly is unstoppable.
Bunny wants to play too.
Friends and confetti? Throw in Bunny and cupcakes? That’s a good day. Fact.
