COOKING: Princess Jewel Flower Cupcakes!

I made these tonight! I saw this flower petal marshmellow design on Pinterest ages ago, but finally got to it tonight. I had nothing to decorate the top of the cupcakes with (the icing I was using had chunky sprinkles in it, so I couldn't put it in pretty flower designs or anything) so I decided to tackle the flowers. I was originally upset that I didn't have the correct small, singular colored sprinkles that you usually use for these flowers, but I think these sprinkles actually worked perfectly! I think they look a lot like princess jewels.

Before realizing I liked the look of all the colors together, I actually spent like 20 minutes separating the five itty bitty color sprinkles into separate colors. Yeah, I don't have patience for that!


  1. I saw the marshmallow thing recently! I want to try it sometime. Did you use frosting underneath still?

  2. Yep, I used rainbow frosting and enough of it to make sure it tastes good - I really like frosting! Then I just sunk the petals into it a bit and they stuck pretty well like that.

    I'm not positive how to eat these, however. Lol. Seems like it'll fall apart quite fast with all the petals!
