For Easter, I wanted to make a dessert that was simple but pretty, and I definitely think that these fit the bill!
I made these once before, and they are time consuming, but they are actually really easy to do. Here’s how I make them!
What you will need:
1 dozen cupcakes, you can use your favorite flavor/recipe
bag of mini marshmallows
vanilla frosting (I used canned because I was lazy, but you can always make your own)
colored sanding sugar
offset spatula, scissors, and ziplock bag
Step 1: Frost the top of the cupcake…starts out easy enough!
Step 2: Take the mini marshmallows and cut them in half, diagonally. You will need about 18-20 marshmallows to cover one cupcake.
Step 3: Put the marshmallow halves in a ziplock bag with some of the colored sanding sugar. Shake it like a salt shaker (the bag, not your booty) until the sticky part of the marshmallow half is coated evenly in sugar.
Step 4: Start placing the marshmallow halves sugar side up around the cupcake to create the “petals” of the flower
Step 5: Keep placing the marshmallow halves around the cupcake and there you have it! A finished flower!
Super easy and fool-proof, and these cupcakes were a huge hit at our Easter dinner!
Have you ever made marshmallow flower cupcakes?
