Flower Cupcakes

I had so much fun making these cupcakes today! They were super easy and so darling I had to share them with my cute 2 year old neighbor. I wanted to experiment around with toppings today, so I made a batch of chocolate cupcakes and started creating. I find that cake mixes make awesome cupcakes, especially when I'm going to doctor them up.

Baked cupcakes
White frosting
1 bag small marshmallows
colored sugar
candy for center of flower, I used Lemon Heads but Skittles or even mini chocolate chips are cute.
Follow the pictorial below

Time to start collecting cute colored sugars!
Cut each marshmallow on the diagonal 

This goes by pretty quickly
pour cut marshmallows into a zippy bag
add some colored sugar and shake
the colored sugar sticks to the "cut" sides, so cute!!
frost your favorite flavor of cupcake with white frosting
I had some buttercream in the freezer
start placing the flower pedals (marshmallows) around
edge of cupcake
repeat until first layer is done
start a second ring of pedals
this has 3 rings of pedals, I placed a Lemon Head in the center
my favorite daughter Olivia made blue ones
aren't they both cute?
I bought these darling liners at
I'm ready for Spring!



  1. Those are so fun, that is decorating I could handle

  2. Thanks for the kind words. One of the things I love best is when I find a way to make something look 10 times harder than it really is. These cupcakes fit that description perfectly
