Yesterday we received these yummy treats from a friend and I remember making these when my children were little. I had forgotten how cute they are and how yummy they are to eat. Who doesn't like cupcakes?
I was going to get a picture of the cute bow tied over the top but before I could Mr. Jones found them and couldn't resist. (hence the one missing.)
I put them on a platter and served them for dessert for Sunday dinner.
I couldn't help but smile when I saw them.
They just say spring! After frosting them with lemon butter cream frosting take some kitchen shears and cut a large marshmallow into 4 slices. Before attaching the marshmallow petals to the cupcake, sprinkle them with any sugar colored sprinkles of your choice. Then stick the petals onto the frosted cupcake and put an M&M on the center for the center of your flower.
Lemon Butter cream frosting:
1/2 cup butter
2 cups of confectioners sugar
1 tsp of lemon extract
1/4 cup of milk
Mix all of ingredients together and beat until creamy.
Frost your cupcakes and enjoy!
They make up quite quickly and the cute flowers look like you really put some extra thought into these cute treats!
Go ahead, make some cupcakes, deliver them to someone you love and watch them smile!
