Sugar Rush

I think I forgot to mention that I gave up candy (my number one weakness) for lent this year. Let me tell you. It was a challenge. I'm that person that has to have dessert every night after dinner and candy is usually my go to. Michael tried to get me to give up desserts all together, but I knew that was something I definitely wasn't strong enough to do. He argued that was the point of lent, but I think me and God both know that candy was challenge enough for this year. I've already given up other delicious things like feta cheese and alcohol and medium rare steaks. I think it was enough.

So you can guess how excited I was for this Easter Sunday. I made 36 mini cupcakes and 18 standard cupcakes to kick things off on Friday and Saturday. I tried to get creative with my Wilton tips and be a little Martha Stewart. They turned out pretty well 17 hours and 10 cups of icing later...

I have to admit I forgot to take pictures before I delivered them to the family lunch so I took some back with me. They looked better before my lovely husband turned them upside down in the car, but we won't talk about that.

For breakfast Sunday morning I gorged myself on mini chocolate Cadbury eggs and my long lost love Sweetart Bug gummies. Yum. I was super excited the whole day. Now candy is overflowing in my house in almost every room and if I don't do something about it soon I'll be over my pregnancy weight goal in no time! Ouch!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying this lovely spring weather!


  1. You're not alone - I'm another one of those people who always needs sweets after a meal!

  2. I am the same way with sweets. I don't consider myself finished with my meal until I have something sweet to eat!

    Love your cupcakes.

  3. Those look delish! I love the little ones with easter "grass" super cute! :)

  4. i'm impressed with your icing skills! they look yummy and very pretty too.
