Ro and Ree invited a couple of girlfriends over for a spring crafting playdate, so I set them up with all the fixings to make marshmallow flower cupcakes (found the great idea here). Blew our socks off! Seriously, you HAVE to make these. Your kids will love them and there is no way to mess them up.
1. Cupcakes (we made white cupcakes with vanilla icing)
2. Mini marshmallows (we used both white ones and colored ones)
3. Sugar sprinkles (as many colors as you can find)
4. Kitchen shears (so you don’t gunk up your regular scissors cutting the marshmallows)
5. Snack-sized ziploc baggies
6. Candies to make the flower centers (we used some old M&Ms and Skittles that the girls got in birthday favor bags)
1. Bake and ice your cupcakes
2. Cut marshmallows diagonally and drop a few at a time into baggies of sprinkles. Shake gently. The sugar will stick to the cut sides.
3. Arrange marshmallows on your cupcake.
4. Add a candy for the center if desired.
5. Use green licorice or fruit roll to make stems if desired.
6. Take a picture because you won’t believe how good they look.
Ree made these two:
And Ro made these:
All of the kiddos made such fun cupcakes, and (as always) it just tickled me to see the different ways they expressed themselves. This would make a great kid station at an Easter party! Just set up a table with pre-iced cupcakes, marshmallows, baggies of sprinkles, and a few finished cupcake examples and let your guests go to town. If we were going to have the Bunny Bash this year (instead of some harrowing kitchen demolition), this is exactly what we’d be doing.
