Today calls for a celebration!
I have a huge announcement to share with you all and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with CUPCAKES! Chocolate Banana Cupcakes to be specific. 😉
Cupcakes are the quintessential celebration food in my opinion. It’s like a personal cake that fits right in the palm of your hand. Fun to eat and fun to make!
But before we get to the celebration, I should probably fill you in on WHAT we’re celebrating. 😉 For a few months now, two of my blogging buddies and I have been planning to start our own Facebook support group for healthy living bloggers. Our vision was to create a group all about supporting, sharing, and learning. There would be daily threads where bloggers could share links to their posts and social media, advice on blogging and getting content out on the web, and support for one another in anything we may need! Well, about two weeks ago…the group finally launched!
And now we’re ready to share the news with all of you and open up the group for YOU to join. There are a few simple criteria that must be met and some easy rules to follow in order to join, but nothing too serious or crazy! Checkout the graphic below to see if you’d be a good fit…
Do you think you want to join?! Head to the group and page and ask to join! You’ll be approved can start sharing with and support the other members.
So, THAT’S the reason for cupcakes! I forgot candles, but that’s okay. Once you see this recipe, you’ll see that the chocolate deliciousness stands alone. No need for candles to show them off! 😉
