I am getting so excited for Easter this year, our last holiday as a family of three! We will be hosting a little Easter brunch & egg hunt with our family and some friends, so I have already been drooling over amazing recipes as I plan our menu. I'm thinking some sort of baked french toast casserole, ham & egg cups and an excessive amount of dessert.
I have been obsessed with egg crates for years, I bought one for our first Easter after we got married & love using it every year! Lately they are popping up everywhere, in lots of shapes & colors so I was prompted to find more uses for them because I love them so much. So of course, mini cupcakes, perfect for an Easter Sunday dessert display or a hostess gift!
These lemon cupcakes are just made from a box (my not so secret recipe) with this whipped cream frosting, using a mini cupcake pan baked for approximately 5 minutes less than what you would normally bake cupcakes at & they fit perfectly inside the egg crate!
Egg crates also make a pretty adorable jewelry holder for a nightstand or bathroom when they're not being stuffed with goodies in the kitchen! ;) I am loving this green wire one that I came across this morning, super affordable & would be cute mixed in with some of the ceramic ones. Always a good option over glass when kids are involved!
I've put together some of the things I am loving for Easter entertaining, including the coveted Jadeite cake stand that I have had my eye on for ever! I keep seeing originals at our local flea market, they are so nostalgic & perfect for Spring. Decorating & setting the table is almost as fun as eating the food!
So how about you, are you hosting Easter brunch or dinner this year? Let the planning (and jelly bean eating) begin! :)
