I spent the day in the kitchen with my kids today. We watched several tutorials this morning before we got started & found some super cute cup-cake & cake frosting ideas.This flower is made by cutting mini-marshmallows on the diagonal, dipping the cut side into colored sugar, & building them into a base on the cupcake.

This sunflower is made by frosting the cupcake with a green frosting base, then topping it with an oreo, then building a flower around it, & accenting it with a m&m candy ladybug.
