Easter Bouquet of Cupcakes

These bright Easter Cupcakes are so fun and easy. I have made these for many years. They sell out quickly at bakesales and are gone almost instantly at parties. Start with baking your favorite cupcake....I love lemon zinger cupcakes or chocolate cupcakes. Cool cupcakes completely.

Make a batch of frosting or you can easily use pre-made whipped white frosting from a can.
Divide frosting into cups and add food coloring...grab sprinkles...and a bag of marshmallows. I have tried less expensive marshmallows. They do not work as well as Jet-Puff by Kraft. Frost cupcakes.

Using scissors, cut the marshmallow into three pieces (cut width of marshmallow, not length, in order to fit on standard size cupcakes).

Let the sprinkling begin.

Place marshmallow petals on frosted cupcake...4 petals per cupcake. Use extra sprinkles or pipe frosting in the middle of cupcake to make a center for your flower (see below).

Hard to resist eating them all or making an Easter bouquet of cupcakes!
