As usual, I'm linking up with Christina and crew for a quick Five on Friday post!
ONE. Rose Cupcakes with Almond Frosting.
I've been craving anything lemon-flavored this Spring, so I decided to make lemon cupcakes this week. It's just a box mix, but I did put in the effort for some Almond Vanilla frosting. I've basically been eating these every day. I mean, who doesn't love cupcakes for breakfast?!
The icing recipe goes like this: 2 sticks of softened butter whipped for a few minutes, 4.5 cups powdered sugar added gradually, a tablespoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of almond extract (or a little less, almond flavor is strong). Whip for 5 minutes and pipe onto cupcake. Side note, do these look like roses? I tried.
My sweet husband brought home some of my favorite flowers this week! Here's hoping I can keep them alive for a few days!
THREE. Spring clothes.
I mentioned this week that we'll be picnicking for Easter since we're so far from our families, but I'm also throwing in brunch plans tomorrow after seeing this Banana Bread French Toast recipe or maybe some french toast sticks. If you can't tell, french toast is my jam!
FIVE. Easter weekend.
