Flower Cupcakes!

You all know how much I love baking.  I have even considered doing a baking blog because I just adore it so much.  Good thing I am a Personal Trainer and workout, or else I would be in trouble with the sugar over load.

I made these cupcakes for my sister Misti's birthday.  It was kind of big birthday, so I wanted to do something special for her.  I have to say they turned out above and beyond what I thought they would be.  

First.  Take your favorite cake recipe or if you want you can use a box mix.  Keep it simple.  You can make your own frosting, whether it be a butter cream or a cream cheese one, just make sure it is white/vanilla.  Bake in white or silver cupcake holders.  

Second.  Take colored marsh mellows and cut them on a diagonal.  Holy they look like a petal or what?  So cool what things around your house can be turned in to.  If you can't find colored marsh mellows you can use the plain ones and dip the sticky side down into colored sugar.  Which would look great too!  

Third.  Frost your cupcakes with a very thin layer but enough to get the marsh mellows/petals to stick.  

Fourth.  Starting on the outside, line the marsh mellows up close together going around the cupcake.  Now, do the same for the second row and final row.  Key is to make sure you keep them close together, so as to not show much of the frosting.

And now you have beautiful cupcakes!  I definitely recommend eating them within the day as the marsh mellows tend to get a little hard.  I just think they look amazingly pretty and I will definitely make them again.  Who doesn't love a cupcake?  

Happy Monday!
