I’m super excited and super nervous to take one of my little men on TV with me this morning to make these marshmallow flower cupcakes.
We first made them last year for Teacher Appreciation Day for their preschool teachers.
Spread (or pipe) some icing on top of the cupcake.
*Note: DO NOT put too much icing on top. When you press the marshmallows in, and especially when little hands do it, the icing squishes to the side a little.
Then, allow the children to cut the marshmallows in half, and shake them up in a baggie filled with sugar sprinkles. The sprinkles stick only to the cut spots. It’s great!
Then, they can arrange them as they like.
If you want them to be a little more like a flower, cut the marshmallows at an angle so that you get a point at the top… like so.
When you drop them in the sprinkles, be sure that no two marshmallows are touching.
Arrange them on the top of the cupcakes so that the ‘flat’ part sits against the top of the cupcake.
*Note: Keep in mind that marshmallows do get hard pretty quickly, so you don’t want to make these too far in advance.
And don’t forget, if you shop at Amazon.com through my link, you support this blog and its contents. Thank you!
