Spring Mum Cupcakes & Countdown to Spring Party

Well it’s official… Valentine’s Day is over and our eyes now turn to Spring.  Don’t you just love Spring!  Today our Countdown to Spring Party is starting.  I thought a flashback to these yummy and oh-so-cute cupcakes would be perfect as we kick-off the party.

We made Pink Lemonade cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Cheese frosting… perfectly refreshing!

For the décor we followed the directions from What’s New Cupcake.  It’s a great cookbook with easy decorating tips.

To make the flowers you take colored mini-marshmallows and cut them in half on the diagonal.  Then you dip the cut side (because it’s sticky) into the colored sugars to create the flower petals.

I started by placing the flower marshmallow petals on the outer edge and worked my way inward.

Super cute right?  Great for all the upcoming Spring events ~ Easter, Mother’s Day, etc.

So are you ready to party?
