These fun Magnolia Bakery copycat Carrie Bradshaw cupcakes are amazing vanilla cupcakes with a pastel pink frosting that you can make right at home with simple ingredients!
I am a huge Sex and the City Fan! I was too young to watch HBO when the series first debuted but by the time the movies came out I was SO into the series!
Mainly because it felt like a love letter to New York City, but next because of the awesome tales of friendship and love. It was great series that I was sad to see end, but rumor has it that the series is getting a reboot!
