Marshmallow Flower Cupcake Tutorial


Daylight saving time has arrived and it seems that it has also brought back freezing temperatures. Did mother nature not get the memo about the spring equinox arriving on March 20???  What a disappointment!!!  I thought that after the record warm weather in February, spring was here to stay. And to make things even worse, we are expecting winter storm Stella tomorrow night which is anticipated to bring blizzard conditions and a decent amount of snow fall. Yikes!!!

What are you going to do sweet friends!!!  We can't control mother nature so for now, I will settle for dreaming of spring.  With that in mind. today I am sharing a recipe and tutorial for these darling Marshmallow Flower Cupcakes that are sure to get you talking about spring flowers.









Bake your favorite cupcake mix or follow the simple recipe below:

  18. These cupcakes are adorable... Great for a bridal shower, because they are like little boquets of flowers... A spring tea in the garden is great.
    I am going to make these, I have to try my hand at them and see how creative I can get.

  21. Janet,

    I'm stopping off from "Create With Joy" this Monday morning. Congrats on being one of this week's featured bloggers. These cupcakes are so pretty! I am going to save your idea for a future cake decorating project. I haven't made cupcakes in years and DH says he'd rather just have a cake so maybe I'll spruce up an ordinary cake with these marshmallow spring flowers. It may be a little trickier than a cupcake but I'm willing to give it a try! Thanks for sharing!

    I invite you to visit Curious as a Cathy for a little mewsic and learn about my AprilA2Z challenge theme reveal!
