Easter Baking

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!! Mine was wonderful - the weather was beautiful and I enjoyed the long weekend!

Yesterday, was invited for brunch and was asked to bake a few things for about 20 people...

Decided to bake a healthy carrot cake (The-Fantabulous-Whole-Wheat-Carrot-Cake-109547) with a not so healthy but delicious creamcheese frosting (Cream-Cheese-Frosting-55530)!



As I love making cupcakes, I made two of Martha Stewart's recipes:

Her strawberry cupcakes (to die for - can't wait to make them again!!) (Delicious-Strawberry-Cupcakes307154) that I frosted with Vanilla-Buttercream-Cake-Frosting-356972 (that I tinted red)


and made Martha's red velvet cupcakes (that I didn't get a chance to taste...) (red-velvet-cupcakes-419096) with the same icing that I tinted different colors.

Now, I am back on track with WW... went to the gym and did one hour of cardio... ;)
