This set of cupcakes was embellished with pretty little sugar pearls.
For instructions on how to decorate, scroll below.
The mini-cupcake liners are pink, purple, blue and green, so I mixed buttercream frosting to match.
Sprinkle the frosted tops of the minis with white, pink, blue and green sugar pearls.
Never underestimate the usefulness of post-holiday candy clearance. I picked up this bag of pastel candy corn *just in case* I could figure out something to do with them this spring. The pastel colors make beautiful flower petals. Can't find pastel colored candy corn? You make the same shape by cutting a piece of Starburst candy and molding it in your hand. Flavored (orange, lemon, lime, cherry, vanilla) Tootsie Rolls also work well.
I love all of the flowers blooming this time of year. Especially blooming cupcakes.
