These sweet cupcakes are perfect to show everyone how much you care.


* Any flavor cake mix
* White or buttercream frosting
* Large marshmellows
* Small colored marshmellows OR small candy (such as M&M's)
* Any color or sugar sprinkles that you desire

How to Make

  • Make cupcakes following directions on cake mix box. Allow them to cool completely and then frost each cupcake.

  • To make the flower petals, cut a large marshmallow into four sections. You will need at least five petals to make the flower. After you cut the large marshmallow into the petals, use the sticky side of a petal to put colored sugar sprinkles on it. (TIP - I usually put the spinkles into a small box or plate and then press the petal into the sprinkles to make sure the entire petal is covered.)

  • After the petals are applied to the cupcake, put a small colored marshmallow (or small candy) in the middle of the petals for the flower bud.

  • Use your creativity to make all different types of jeweled flowers.

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your cupcake or sweet treat is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
