We are ushering in spring with a bang at my house. We can't wait for the weather to start turning warm and having more sunshine in our days. My garden just looks sad right now, but that doesn't mean we can't have some adorable simple spring garden cupcakes on the table.
Spring Garden Cupcakes
You will need
- Chocolate Cake Mix Recipe
- the best buttercream frosting
- green sour straw candies
- Orange Food Coloring
- Cupcake Liners
- Cupcake Pan
I started with my Chocolate Cake Mix Recipe and whipped up a batch of cupcakes. You can make gluten-free cupcakes too. Totally up to you. I then made a batch of the best buttercream frosting (you can use store bought and color it orange), and I got these green sour straw candies. Those were the hardest to find, but the gas station or dollar store should have them.
Now....here is where the fun starts. Get a sharp knife and cut a hole in the top of the cupcake. I tapered mine down on the inside. Basically, you want a hole that looks like a carrot was pulled out of it. I am not really sure what happened to all of the extra little bites of chocolate cake.....they seemed to have disappeared. 😉
Then just pipe the icing down into the hole, overfilling just a little. We are making it look like a carrot in the ground. Use the green candy straws in the tops as the leaves. VOILA! The cutest cupcakes EVER!
When you cut them open it seriously looks like a little carrot growing. The kids just love this! They are perfect for a garden themed party, Easter, or just to celebrate spring!
The Easter Bunny would be proud to see these Simple Spring Garden Cupcakes welcome him on any table. They seriously are adorable!
