It’s a late post, but when isn’t it? The first day of the month was Easter and unfortunately, Justin had to work. I took the day off for myself as an opportunity to bake some springtime goodies in celebration!
I spent most of the morning working out and cleaning the apartment which both felt awesome to get done! Then I pampered myself with a sheet mask and hopped in the shower- my look for the day was clean & simple. I just wore mascara and a bit of lip gloss ^ feeling like a spring chick in my Easter yellow shirt haha
I threw on my matching apron and got out everything I’d need to start making the yummy stuff…
First up, lemon bars ^ the Krusteaz brand has the best ones and they’re super easy to make! Down side of having a 9×9 inch pan as opposed to the 8×8 inch recommended is that the crust of the bars came out thin and cooked a little too much for my liking. They were still very tasty (:
After that, I got all the baking cups ready to make gluten-free Funfetti cupcakes ^ I’m not a huge cake person, but my favorite is Funfetti, so I was excited to see they had a gluten-free box mix available. Once both batches were out of the oven, I waited for Justin to get home from work so we could decorate them together!
I realized too late that we didn’t have sprinkles ^ so I emptied out the last of the Lucky Charms cereal and separated out the marshmallows to add on top of the icing! They came out adorable and very festive-looking haha
We went to Justin’s Nana’s house for the evening to meet up with his family ^ brought along some cupcakes for everyone of course!
Justin’s parents got us this sweet lil frog to stake into our front yard ^ they also picked up a cute frog flag, but it ended up being full-size instead of a garden flag! So we’re saving that for when we have a house (:
I hope you all had a lovely Easter and are enjoying the start of Spring (or Fall if you’re in that part of the world). I’ve loved seeing everyone’s posts about the holiday…
