YUMM YUMM BUNNY BUM

IMG_2914.jpg

Ohhhh my, how cute are these?! I have to admit, they were a lot of fun to make, but a lot of time went into these cute cupcakes. With Easter knocking at the door, I had the urge to do some cute baking inspired by Pinterest finds. Lets start...

Step 1: Prep your decorations

I made one of my favourite vanilla cupcake and buttercream icing recipes. If y'all would like this recipe, comment below and I can post it :)

I started with the bunny tails. I rolled mini marshmallows in my hand adding a tad bit of water to make them tacky. I then dropped them in my bag of white decorating sugar and rolled them in there to get a nice coating.

To make the ears of a bunny, I saw this neat trick on Pinterest. You simply cut a large marshmallow on an angle and dip them in decorative sugar. So simple and so effective.

I don't know where all of you get your baking supplies but I usually head to Bulkbarn. They always have seasonal sections and I found these cute bunny feet. Made my life easier, as I was planning on making them out of candy melts. Saved a lot of time there!

Step 2: Ice the cupcake

I decided to make some "dirt" for my cupcakes. I separated the icing from 15 Oreos, put that in with my buttercream icing then crushed the cookie for that dirt effect. Plus who doesn't love a little Oreo action in their cupcakes?

I iced the cupcake then stuck the crushed Oreos on top. I quickly iced the grass with my grass tip.

I then placed a bit of icing on the end of a large marshmallow and stuck it in the "dirt". This is the body of the bunny. After I piped the grass all around the body to fill in the dirt spots. Then you pop on the tail and little feet.

You're all done!

I hope you guys try this one out! It was fun seeing them all come together and getting the reactions out of everyone.

Happy Easter Friends!

TRAVEL: NOTTING HILL

Ian and I recently visited Notting Hill and ALL my dreams came true! This posh area in West London is definitely something to see in person, pictures don't do this place justice! From the stunning bright pastel colours to the beautiful architecture, I highly recommend putting Notting Hill on your go-to list when visiting London. 

Before hitting up the market we got a bite to eat. I had researched and found this stunner of a brunch spot, Granger & Co. The hot spot first opened in Sydney, Australia and became loved for its legendary breakfasts (and I could see why). The food was great, but it was quite busy. I'm happy we got a table instantly, and although it was a tight squeeze, it was worth it.

I had a coworker recommend going to Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the markets busiest day, but unfortunately Ian's hockey schedule only lets us go on Monday, so that's what we did. Although it wasn't as busy as I've seen in photographs, it was still a bustling area, with lots to take in! There were tons of cute antique shops, yummy street food, live performers & beautiful fresh flowers. I was in awe.

After visiting the market we just walked around the neighbourhood and took in all its beauty.

This little walk-up cafe was in the middle of a busy road! We had just finished having a snack at another cafe otherwise we definitely would have hit it up.

I'm not a huge waffle person, but this was heaven in my mouth. I forgot to take a picture of the bakery so of course I forget where this was, but it was a very tiny bakery tucked in between shops on Portobello Road.

After a lot of walking and all that food, what else were we missing? A pub of course haha. I had found Churchill Arms on Pinterest and had to see it in real life! Although it hadn't bloomed to it's full potential this place is a must see. It was built in 1750, making it one of the older and more historic pubs in London. In the 1800s, Winston Churchill's Grandparents were regulars which led to the naming of the pub. Inside the pub shows LOTS of Churchill memorabilia and more London theme'd decor. Along with lots of beer choices, they also have a Thai restaurant in the back, which smelt delicious.

We had such a fun day visiting Notting Hill and I already want to go back. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful neighbourhood. It's definitely not something to miss.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

Charlotte and I both have very similar tastes in decor and constantly send each other beautiful apartment finds on Instagram, so it is only fitting we post about some of our faves and where to find them! Let's just say we both desire dreamy boho vibes for our spaces.
