Dancing Baby Groot Chocolate Gingerbread Cupcakes

After three long years, Guardians of the Galaxy is back with Volume 2! The sequel stays true to all we loved about the first film, providing another shoot-em-up space adventure with plenty of laughs and a feel-good soundtrack. Every member of our favorite galactic motley crew returns to the big screen- with one slight change: Lovable Groot comes back as Baby Groot and, to be honest, I could not be more stoked about that. He’s the cutest, and they made him cuter. Well done.

Easy Angry Orchard Cider Cupcakes

Angry Orchard Cider Cupcakes

Name two great things: dessert and alcohol. Any opportunity I have to pair the two, I absolutely take advantage of. I actually first discovered cider while studying abroad my sophomore year of college. As a 19-year-old frolicking London, a city that’s drinking age is 18, I naturally had to “grab a pint” whenever possible.

However, I quickly discovered that a “pint” was quite filling for a small human like me. I also wasn’t used to beer, but hey I could legally drink so I had to try it! Until I discovered a beautiful creation called the half-pint. You mean all this time I could be ordering a drink that wasn’t as big as my face? Shortly after falling in love with the half-pint, I had my first cider. You mean I could’ve been drinking cider this whole time?! My eyes were opened, and for the rest of the trip, I enjoyed my half-pints of cider from pub to pub.

Now I’m 22, and actually, prefer beer over cider. Cider is quite sweet for my new taste as an American of drinking age. That being said, it is undeniably the drink of fall. It’s crisp like the fall air with a nostalgic hint of apples like pie on Thanksgiving. It felt natural to me to pair this beverage with a dessert.  This cupcake is incredibly easy to make and is bound to impress your friends!

Bundt Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

With Easter coming up this weekend, carrot cake seemed like my only option for today’s post. But hey, I’m not complaining! This moist, light cake is paired with the most delicious cream cheese frosting to create a perfect balance of flavors. I have found there are two types of people: those who love carrot cake or those who want nothing to do with it. To the second group, I say don’t deny this cake! Eat up the frosting with a spoon and you will be in heaven. This festive dessert comes together quickly and the bundt pan makes it automatically adorable!
