I share a lot of things here on the blog and socials so I thought it was about time to condense it into a place on the blog where you can find products that I've shared and get them for yourself.

As of right now, none of these links are affiliate. However, as my blog grows, some may become affiliate.

I tried my best to link to the best prices available. But shop around. Healthy living isn't cheap so shop around, shop wholesale or at stores like TJ Maxx and Homegoods to find some of these products too.

French Toast Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream

1:41 PM

Y'all, its no surprise at this point that I love a good cupcake. And while I'm very open that they are never made from scratch (striving for basic here 🙋🏻), I always like finding a way to spruce up those bland vanilla cupcakes with unique new flavors!

Gluten Free, Dairy Free French Toast Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream
Some cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla make up the cake part of this cupcake. Topped with my super simple buttercream that is infused with maple will have you wanting more!
