  • Yesterday I made the cutest little Easter cupcakes and they were just too good not to share. Toasted coconut, cadbury eggs, polka dot baking cups… {swoon}. These Easter cupcakes are so simple and nothing new, but they are definitely a family fave. Growing up we would color the coconut green, but I think the toasted coconut tastes so much better! These would be perfect for an upcoming Spring event. They require little effort on your part, but will definitely oo and ahh your guests!
