Ingredients

cupcakes, any flavor, made according to package directions or your favorite recipe
frosting, any flavor, but white or buttercream works best
bag of mini marshmallows
decorating sugar, your choice of colors (pictured with red and green)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bake and frost your favorite cupcakes.
2
To make flower petals, cut mini marshmallows in half on a diagonal. This will expose a sticky inside. Press the sticky side into the colored sugar. I make a lot of red ones for the flower and a few green ones for leaves around the edge.
3
Press the sugared marshmallows into the frosting working around the outside edge. Then make another circle of marshmallows inside that forming a flower. Continue until top is covered. Sprinkle colored sugar or other sprinkles into center, if desired.
