I decorated my Easter cake with colored coconut and gummy carrots.

I have found a great candy shop. Chippewa Candy Shop

I was so excited when I saw these cute gummy carrots, a perfect way to decorate my 2021 Easter cake! The best part is the carrot gummy is orange flavored.  

Our family enjoyed spending Easter together! We are so thankful for each day we have together.
