Spring picnic!

I hope you all had a great Easter! I know I did, the weather has been wonderful all week. My friends and I arranged a spring picnic on Monday to celebrate the season.

I made these little Easter-themed cupcakes for the picnic. They are vanilla flavored, with raspberry filling and buttercream icing. Both the batter and the icing are completely vegan, but I added nougat eggs and some white chocolate shavings to some of the cupcakes for the non-vegans. The little nests were very popular! :-)

We had a great time at the picnic! Tons of food, sweets, egg painting, a nice blueberry hookah, some knitting, and excellent company! I also made some cascarones, mexican confetti eggs, and arranged a little egg hunt... They were so fun to make! There's a tutorial for making confetti eggs HERE.

Sorry about the blurry picture! I wish I could have gotten some better pictures of the eggs, but they soon ended up looking like this:

Needless to say, they were a hit! :-) Thank you friends for a lovely day!
