Spring-time Flower Cupcakes

Saw this idea in a Harris Teeter grocery flyer last week and thought that my children would enjoy decorating cupcakes this way. I was right, they did. I made a few changes but here is what you will need- cupcakes, buttercream frosting, Pastilles, Vanilla Wafers, white mini marshmallows, and yellow mini marshmallows which are sold in a bag of multi-colored minis by Kraft Foods.

I made a tray of some myself…

Because once you let the children loose, you’ll never know what you’ll get…

Here are what Pastilles are…

You can find them in Trader Joe’s or any highend grocery store, top shelf item.

Enjoy something fun and easy for a change.

    Very cute Robin. I would definitely be going for the ones with chocolate in the center.

    how festive! is it just me, or do the colored marshmallows taste completely different from and much better than the white ones?

    What a great idea! My daughter LOVES marshmallows, and loves it when I make homemade ones over the Christmas holidays.

    Hope you had a great weekend!

    These cupcakes are colorful and I love it! I’ve tried putting marshmallows on cupcakes before. I will try your idea of putting that round pastilles on cup cake in Perth.
