Easy Easter Cupcakes

26.3.16
Although I try to avoid sweet treats like this, it doesn't mean everyone has to miss out, so I decided to whip up a batch of these easy cupcakes for Easter weekend.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!


Because this is a rather simple cupcake recipe, I thought I would mix things up a little and do vanilla cupcakes with chocolate icing, they turned out really nicely, fluffy and just sweet enough.
